Confidence: one of the most important qualities in determining our success, yet feels like the hardest feeling to accomplish daily. Why is that?

Time for your perfectionism? Not now, not ever.

Board Room to Dining Room

Board Room to Dining Room

From the board room table to the dining room table, it’s what I tell most of my clients, the behaviors they are working hard to demonstrate as leaders carry over to their team at home.

The Observer

The Observer

You can’t fire him; you better make it work for you and not against you.  Some people call it our consciousness, some people call it internal dialogue, I call it the observer. There is a part of our brain, the animal non-cognitive brain that without command or as a reaction to sensorial perceptions starts super–fast processes and in […]

The Curiosity of a Beginner

The Curiosity of a Beginner

As kids, our curiosity has no limits. We embrace the world around us by questioning every bit of it that we experience.

El Enojo: Enemigo Interno

El Enojo: Enemigo Interno

“Esta persona me hace enojar” es una expresión común; el enojo surge cuando alguien nos altera. Esta transición de nuestro estado “no enojado” a “enojado” es casi imperceptible. Por supuesto sabemos cuando nos enojamos, que estamos enojados o enojadísimos, pero cuando eso sucede ya pasamos el punto de transición de tranquilo a enojado. La energía […]

Cheer up, what gives us joy?

Often situations in life can undermine our confidence, frustrate us and feel like obstacles that are difficult to overcome.

Time is not money. The universal dictum of “time is money” was made famous by Benjamin Franklin when he equated the passing minutes and hours to shillings and pounds.
