One of the things that I’ve observed in my coaching recently is an increasing number of conversations about time management. I remember the old days—about 35 years ago, in my case-- when disorganization looked like me trying to manage things with little scraps of...read more
Sometimes people have an expectation that when you work together as a team, everyone needs to be friends — buddies who go out and do things together outside of work time. Many teams do function like that, and that’s fine if it works. But not all teams have to function...read more
Every once in a while I’m asked by colleagues about my writing assistant, Tara. It’s been a huge time saver for me to have someone to help me write my books, prepare presentations, design training materials, and even write these blog entries. Sometimes people ask me...read more

Gerardo, a mechanic-pastor I met in Honduras, made a comment in passing that I found interesting: “The reason you need elders in your church is that they focus internally. Pastors, of course, are focused externally.” The "of course" struck me. I asked him for...read more
