I could always tell when an organization was in good shape. I could tell because the manager of the organization would always be talking about how great the people in the organization were. If the manager was talking about anything other than how great people in the organization were, I knew that the organization was in bad shape.
The way to manage an organization successfully is to manage it in such a way that you can be proud of the people with whom you are working. You have to find a way to interact with the people with whom you are working in a way that makes you proud of them.

I love this perspective from Werner. It makes total sense to me. I’ve worked in many organizations, some really big corporations like GE and HP, some medium sized organizations like New England Power, and Sainsbury’s, and some smaller companies working for the owner. I’ve even worked for Landmark – which was Werner Erhard and Associates back in the day. read more
I was at my wits end trying to sink my teeth into a pressing life pattern in order to take a huge bite out of it. I finally did nail it, but it took a lot of digging. In doing so, I came to realize that the beliefs, emotions and feelings I experienced are very old – way before this lifetime. read more
I love finding quick, easy, effective tools that help us reduce fear because reducing fear allows for more freedom of choice and for taking positive action in our lives. Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT or “Tapping” is one of these tools. I felt moved to share this technique with you.
An interesting notion. I was reading a friend’s blog post and had the realization: Miracles don’t come from anything we “know.” Just the opposite in fact. You can’t plan a miracle nor can you know how they will happen. Miracles come from the unknown, many times literally from nothing – that’s why they are miracles! Read More
I experienced synchronicity this past week that proved to be significant enough for me to investigate. I watched an episode of Agatha Christie’s Poirot and an Inspector Morse within a couple of days of each other. Just so happens, the two episodes were really similar – I unknowingly chose to watch the episodes where each inspector dies. I saw the last episode of Poirot and the last episode of Morse. Incredible, I thought: How can that be . . . and why? Read More
I had a dream last night that I showed up to work without my uniform. It got me thinking. I believe we manifest situations and people in our lives for ultimate growth and learning, especially if these situations and people really get under our skin. When this happens in my life, I take it as a sign that some part of me wants to leap out of a self-imposed box and have a breakthrough – almost as if to say: I’ve had enough of being bothered and want to move on from this ridiculousness.

Imagine what life would be like without judgment. As far as I can tell, judgment is pervasive and automatic: we do it without realizing. We judge ourselves and we judge others. We have opinions and we make comparisons. Our brain does this in split seconds and before we know it, our opinion or judgment is being thought and/or spoken. In order to do this we must access the past. Read More
