Business leaders like to talk about creating a coaching culture because they’ve heard enough about it to know it’s a good thing. But they may not really know what it means or why it’s so important. 


Whether you’re new to the CEO seat or you’ve been there for a while, the complexity of managing the business strategy, dealing with critical operational issues, and providing a positive working environment can be daunting on any given day.

Lessons from a Push-Up Challenge

A couple of years ago, Ken Perry shared a challenge he was undertaking. One push-up a day—add a push-up per day.

To be honest, it almost felt weird doing just one… Read More

Time to Reflect

Growing up as a TV fan in the ‘80s, I was forced to get comfortable with waiting. When my favorite show ended on Tuesday at 9 p.m. (like this one or this one), we were forced to wait 7 long days to see what happened next to the characters we loved. In that forced hiatus,… Read More
