Welcome to the BG blog, in which I offer practical advice on how to create thriving teams -- in couples, at the office, and even within yourself (yes, we each have a "team" of voices and players within). I'd love to hear your thoughts and how the posts are impacting you in the comments section. And do tell me more about what topics you are interested in reading about.



Online Marketing Not Working Like It Used To? It Might Be You. Or Not.

I recently received this comment from a colleague who unsubscribed from my e-mail list: “I just have too many emails coming into my box, I need to streamline, you understand!”

I certainly do understand.

Transition

September: That bittersweet month for summer lovers when the lightly marked appointment books and lively green memories fade into the speckled background of fall foliage. It’s a time of new beginnings: a new school year, new projects, new ambitions, goals and if you’re lucky, a new pair of boots. Change is literally in the air, […]

Tragedy and Humanity

I felt my heart leap into my throat and tears stream down my cheeks, and I noticed others blinking back their tears. We looked at each other with compassion. New Yorkers: The most hardened people in the world. They had become real to me. We were sharing a sacred moment in the subway.

Leadership in Tense Relationship Moments, Pt. II

Skip the Side of Lies: Blossom Instead

If you feel that your current job (or lack there of) is not challenging you or utilizing the depth of your creativity or healing skills, you’ll start to dream of what you could be doing. Some of those dreams will be escapist — you recognize them because they include fantasies like giving your academy award speech or doing nothing on a deserted island. Without your children. Forever.

5 Creative Leadership Skills for a Brilliant Vacation

You may not need leadership skills to make your vacation a smash — but consider these five simple steps to make what you have planned even better.

A Generation Gap – Entitlement vs. Empowerment

I was talking to a man who started dating. He was irritated because when he took his date to the restaurant, she said, “I can’t eat here. It’s not vegan.” He didn’t mind her food preferences and thought there would be some options for her at the place he chose. But her declaration had a tone of entitlement.

Must Leaders Graduate High School?

I had no idea that I would feel so small as I gazed out over the field and felt that I didn’t know or fit in with anyone. The experience of discomfort was so strong that for about three days I arrived in the mornings acting as though I was a 15-year-old on my first day at a new school, wearing last year’s fashion.
