*This is part of a series breaking down my Aliveness Scaffolding to discuss our collective (un)learning of racism in America.  Today I talk about Awareness and Listening, the first two practices outlined in my Scaffolding.

A few days ago, I had an idea.  

I’ve been...

It’s been a long time since I’ve had this much work to do.  I’ve been busy before, sure, following tasks on countless To Do lists.  I’ve had timelines and deadlines, goals and outcomes to strive toward.  Projects to finish, disciplines to practice, boxes to check....

In this time between what used to be and what’s becoming, I’ve been doing a ton of exploring and question-asking; research and discovery.  I’ve been flexing all of the nerves and brain structures responsible for my curiosity -- which is on complete and total overdrive...

Coming into entrepreneurship after a lifetime of corporate business has thrown me into a tailspin time and again, over these past couple of years.  No doubt every single article, podcast and blog post is right: this work can be just as arduous as it is creative, libera...

I don’t know if I’ve ever been good at it. I mean, as a kid of course. But as an adult, I’m not so sure.

The statistics abound.  A recent Gallup poll tells us that only a third of our employees, globally, feel a level of meaningful engagement at work.  Engaged teams demonstrate 21% greater profitability due to more time in the office and less t...

Back in December, I spoke at the Hivery holiday party in their new San Francisco space.  It was an honor and a pleasure to lead a room of one hundred people in a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors, before talking with them about my ideas around Aliveness.  Everyone participat...
