When the season of Spring comes, we notice change around us.  The Earth is thawing from the cold of winter.  Animals who were hibernating come out into the sun.  We notice new plants beginning to sprout.  Flowers are budding, and an atmosphere of new opportunity dominates our thinking.  It’s a time of renewal, which causes [...]

Moving from Scarcity to Abundance

2017-12-14T09:19:08-06:00December 14th, 2017|Leadership, Personal Development|

When I think of abundance, I see my father’s garden in the Springtime.  Fruits and vegetables that I helped plant before the ground was cold and crusty that mature and fill with color and new life.  Scarcity in the garden is an invisible quality.  The garden is a metaphor for how life works in creating [...]

Changing Personality Dynamics

2016-07-20T12:16:09-05:00July 20th, 2016|HR/Organizational Development, Personal Development|

Recently, I have been exploring causes of changes in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) results that individuals could experience as you mature and grow.  The MBTI® identifies basic personality preferences, and one of the reasons we like this instrument is because of its preference scale that shows your degree of preference in your personality traits [...]
