Building A High-Performance Organization That Is Value- And Values-Driven ©

Changing an organization — changing a human system — is, at its heart, a process of finding and then using sources of organizational leverage.

Substantial Liquidity (Finally) Happens for You… But What Now? ©

Life-changing events come in all shapes and sizes and most of the time either barge in unexpectedly or creep up on us.

While admittedly ironic, it is nevertheless relatively common that ending up with a big pile of money in our lap before the retirement years (or even after, in some instances) can create an existential crisis, unnerve us, and even replace our passion for work or for life with too many relentless, seemingly insoluble questions.

Caution: Career Derailment Ahead ©

Why do even key, talented employees flounder or derail? In the vast majority of cases, career derailments occur because an individual has a psychological blind spot that is all too visible to others.
