The question Oprah heard again and again.

  This past weekend I went to Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life on Focus Tour in Los Angeles. From beginning to end, the full-day event was nothing but inspirational, soul stirring, and heart opening as Oprah and guests shared their life lessons, and what it takes to live life “on purpose.” Oprah shared a story about interviewing the likes of Beyoncé, Barack Obama, Tom Cruise, and thousands of other guests during her 25-year tenure on […]

One question to ask yourself today

We live life forwards and we understand it backwards. As everyone reflects on the last year, and even the last decade, we being to understand and empathize our personal peaks and valleys. Which brings me to the age-old narrative archetype, the Hero’s Journey. We see the Hero’s Journey in almost every Hollywood flick or novel, and I see it in almost all of my clients’ non-fiction books or memoirs, especially when they share their personal […]

Forced Transparency

Last week, Uber released a safety report detailing sexual assaults and other safety concerns of the ride-sharing company. The results included almost 6,000 incidents in 2017 and 2018 combined, ranging from “nonconsensual touching” to rape. This is not an email indicting Uber’s leadership, or about the unfortunate statistics revealed in the report. This email is about Truth. Uber was forced into transparency and telling the truth. Why? Because you can’t hide the truth. Here’s some […]

The Value of Doubt

Last week, comedian/actor Sacha Baron Cohen blasted Facebook and other tech companies in an op-ed published in the Washington Post. Photo Via Washingtonpost.com He wrote: “Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other social media platforms reach billions of people. The algorithms these platforms depend on deliberately amplify content that keeps users engaged – stories that appeal to our baser instincts and trigger outrage and fear. That’s why fake news outperforms real news on social media; studies show […]

The art of creating together.

In a world that touts individualism, it may to hard to see how humans co-create perhaps everything on a daily basis. I mean, Are we truly self-reliant, or do we need others to create? According to the documentary film American Factory, 375 million jobs will be lost to automation globally in the next 10 years. Our imagination, critical thinking, creative visualization, and touch/intimacy skills is what sets humans apart from animals (and hopefully robots/artificial intelligence). […]

When “Your Story” Shames Others

Writing a book is not just about sharing 7 Habits, 10 Principles, or tips on How to … Although these types of books are great for business, many of my clients choose to write books that bear their soul, share their personal story, and, oftentimes, include intimate details and events from their life. Indeed, sharing your story through writing a book can be a powerful and transformational process… But what if your story is not […]

How dare you?

Does anger have a place in leadership? Yesterday, 16 year old climate and environmental activist Greta Thunberg delivered a moving speech to the UN Climate Action summit in New York. Her emotion ranged from lamentation to frustration, anger and deep indignation. It was palpable and forceful. Exactly what the world needed to hear. Read the entire speech here. You may think anger has no place in leadership, but when we look at some of the […]

How to Stay Strong When They Deny Your Truth

Ok, here we go again. Another high profile, high powered person-in this case the President of the United States-is confronted with the truth of his alleged sexual assault as detailed in the New Yorker magazine recently. E. Jean Carroll is the 22nd woman accusing the President of sexual misconduct. (Just wanted to remind you as the 24/7 news cycle can be overwhelming to keep up with.) And just as expected, like all accused harassers, the […]

Point a finger? Or point the way.

Yesterday I was in New York City conducting a full-day training on “How to Master Your Thinking… for Peak Performance and Powerful Partnerships.” Actually, that’s not the name of the training. It’s real name is “Unconscious Bias.” And after doing a slew of these trainings over the last few years, my experience is no one is overly enthused about attending. In fact, companies/organizations/institutions usually institute these trainings after there has been a problem, perhaps a “caught on […]
