"Before I married, I had three theories about raising children and no children. Now, I have three children and no theories."
~ John Wilmot        

My usual publication day is the third Wednesday of the month.  Sometimes it's the "second to last" Wednesday of the month.  Due to the under-abundance of bandwidth cruising the Caribbean and the OVER-abundance of Rum....I've chosen the latter this month.  Enjoy!

Prepare the Child   
Prepare the Child for the Road, not the Road for the Child. -Native American proverb
This article is basically an op. ed. piece. And it's "parent-y." It's totally my opinion, and I'll take any heat and commentary on it as productive.
It's been my (and most transactional analysis psychologists') premise that the experiences of our youth, from about two years old through about six, form our Knower/Judger persona. It is thought that through that age period we make decisions about how the world works and how we fit in it. We create our concepts of right and wrong, persuasion, self-worth, and thousands of things that we'll compare ourselves against for the rest of our lives. We may even have a concept of the type of spouse we'll marry, and, if we grow up in certain environments, even how often we should beat him or her.  (Read more)..... 
Change and the New Year's Resolution 
By the time you read this, you may have already blown your New Year's Eve Resolution(s).
Why do we even bother to make them? Over the years I'll bet I'm zero for fifty. I've discovered several possibilities as to why they don't work, at least for me.  (Read more)..... 
A note from the author:




Three foundations of successful teams.

It has dawned on me that when working with management teams of highly productive executives, the most progress made is with the individual.  After all, it's the individuals who develop these three conditions....or do not.

They may be a part of a team.  They may even lead that team.  They are first and foremost individuals.  People who came to this position with Knower/Judger ramifications that can both serve the mission well and cause it to stumble.  Serve the individual's life well, or cause it to stumble as well.

So it is clearly with the individual I work.  It is even more fun when I work with multiple interacting individuals, and I can watch interpersonal wellness enhance performance and productivity.

Most managers and executives I have had the pleasure of Coaching report benefits not only in their professional world, but in their personal and recreational worlds as well.  The tools are Universal.

If you want to explore expanding potential, enriching relationships, and accelerating performance....anywhere in your world, drop me a line or give me a call.  Curiosity is a wonderful teacher.

...and....it's Time to Learn.
