Leaders Who Listen Control The Conversation

Leaders who understand how to listen aren’t triggered into angry debates or caught off guard by someone else’s agenda. The one with clarity always navigates the ship.

The Quest for Unity in America

The Quest for Unity in America

This year’s presidential campaign presents a unique opportunity for inner growth. Unfortunately most of us miss the opportunity because our attention is focused on the outside: What someone else is doing wrong, who is to blame, and why everyone else is wrong.

Using Choice as Power: How to Get it Right

Using Choice as Power: How to Get it Right

Choice is like the porridge in Goldilocks’s story of the Three Bears: Papa Bear’s porridge was way too hot, Mama Bear’s porridge was way too cold, but Baby Bear’s porridge was just right.
