It is time to re-think what we celebrate in our own leadership styles and the cultures of the companies we build.
We are not in the business of digging more ditches or pounding more nails. We are in the business of solving hard problems through creativity.
How to navigate the tension between reaching high and living a more content life.
Your presence and creative attention mean more to your people and your work than all the effort you can muster. Maybe it's time to relax.
We have glamorized the solo, impervious leader at our own peril. Real strength comes from reliance on others.
Focus and hard work have their place. But do not underestimate the role of play in the creative process.
We glamorize the entrepreneurial life as one of long-hours and endless strain. But is there another way?
Looking back at my early time as a founder, fear fueled 80% of my actions. Now I am determined to help others avoid that fate.
Does change feel like two steps forward and two steps back? You are not alone.
One reason I coach is because there was one leader I loved but could not help.
