Spring, 2020
Dear Friends,

I hope that you and your loved ones are navigating the uncharted waters of the global pandemic without any major difficulties. Despite the near constant barrage of negative news, I remain hopeful that together, we will get through this and that ultimately, there will be a global shift in awareness about what truly matters.

Please stay safe, stay healthy and stay positive, 

David O'Brien
The Tale of The Two Wolves
A Cherokee Legend
The story is told of a young boy who was angry and upset and went to see his Native American grandfather for advice. The grandfather told him, “Like you my child, I have two wolves inside my heart. One of them is positive and filled with joy, kindness, hope and compassion. He lives in harmony and peace. The other wolf is negative and filled with fear, envy, arrogance, resentment and self-doubt. He rages, but his anger changes nothing. The two wolves fight inside me every day to see which is more powerful.”

After listening to his grandfather attentively for several minutes, the young boy asked his grandfather, which wolf will win the fight in your heart grandfather? To which the grandfather responded, “The one I feed.”

Featured Workshop: Leading Through Change
The range and pace of change in today’s workplace is unparalleled. The adage “seize the day” has been replaced with “seize the moment”. Despite this new organizational reality, the opportunity associated with change and transformation is equally significant. The ability to lead employees through constant change is not just critical for the organization but also key to the leader’s capacity to drive discretionary effort.

Absent a deep understanding of change issues and related response options, organizational change has the potential to derail the objectives of even the best leaders. In this highly interactive workshop, participants explore a range of “best practice” strategies for turning organizational change into an opportunity.
