Tame your Demons

Uncategorized May 07, 2019

" her family wasn't very good at talking about important stuff. And of all of them, she was the least good at it. When she tried, it felt like all the chains on all her imagined safes and trunks started rattling”

Does that sound like you? It's not always easy to talk about the important stuff. In fact, it can be damn scary at times. The idea of all those trunks and safes springing open and releasing the demons, the memories, the toxic thoughts could turn most people to stone quicker than a stolen glance at the great Gorgon, Medusa.

Childhood was when you probably first set up this unholy zoo of caged fears. And as you rambled through life you collected a few more characters to cage. School certainly offered up a couple. How about your career and family? Think you might have a demon or two adopted from those relationships?

But it takes more strength to continually check those locks and tighten those chains than to finally free yourself of their powers.

Crawl into my ambulance, your pulse is getting weak

Uncategorized May 01, 2019

"your life was one long emergency", a great lyric from one the worlds greatest songs. This works in the context of art designed to move you emotionally. Where this is less attractive is in the real world when your emotions are hijacked by those close to you. If this is happening in your world, reflect on it. Who is really being served in this "victim-rescuer" relationship. Sure, there is a pay off for both parties but at what cost? One stays small and the other martyrs. This can happen in the workplace, not just families & friends. 

If this is showing up in your life, and you want to change it - you may want some support in designing a way forward.

Leading from behind

Uncategorized Dec 23, 2017

I was speaking with a fellow coach recently and she spoke of how she was uncomfortable with her wedding vows including the phrase “ A woman leads by walking ten paces behind her husband”.

A few years later as she was preparing for her start in an Alaskan dog race she noticed she took exactly ten steps from harnessing the lead dog to her place of command at the back of the sled.

She was in fact – Leading from behind.

This reminds me of the “servant leadership” concept.

“The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions…The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types. Between them there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of...
