creating better places to work: org & team health, emotional intelligence, culture, leadership, and learning
She makes so many people happy, including me. Happy birthday, dear!
Made a quick trip to Nashville this weekend. Great food, drinks, and music. But more importantly, I love spending time with Anna!
Toured a few distilleries this past weekend - the process & history is absolutely amazing.
Glad to have the sound of @corybreth fill the coffee shop tonight.
A co-worker gifted me this to start my Christmas tie collection. So far I've received mixed reviews...
Celebrating 6 years with Anna. What a great year! So proud of her accomplishments this year. Love you!
Hosted a learning session on systems-thinking this afternoon. Learning more about how teams learn & how systems operate. Collaboration, data driven decision making, and innovation are all crucial elements; however, organizations are often inadvertently designed to limit these practices. #leadership#learning
I'm learning that #leadership#development is most effective when focused on developing the whole person. A tension exists unless people are willing to look inward and motivate themselves to #change. The next 6-months will be spent with a group diving deep into 3 areas: Leading Self, Leading Others, and Leading the Organization.
What a great opportunity to better understand systems, shared vision, and mental models - grateful for these experiences!
"Government agencies and nonprofits have a noble purpose, but working for these entities often feels soulless and lifeless just the same. All these organizations suffer from power games played at the top and powerlessness at lower levels, from infighting and bureaucracy, from endless meetings and a seemingly never-ending succession of change and cost-cutting programs." -Fredrick Laloux #reinventingorganizations
Loved that this gem stopped by my office this morning. Also, check out those #papercitycoffee hats!
Good to be with this crew tonight. Missing a few key people, though.
