Mindfulness in the Minefield: Reclaiming Calm in the Office

You’re at your desk and the phone rings.  The hairs stand up on back of your neck when the number flashes on the phone’s face:  it’s your boss’ admin and you do not have anything scheduled with your boss. Now you do.  You have an inbox that’s doubled since you started your day an hour…

Corporate Climber

Dear Sally, I’m a director-level corporate guy and have climbed that ladder, one rung at a time, but at a decent pace. I’ve never really understood the reasons behind my promotions. I mean, I’m a good producer, and people generally like me. But when I look around me, I don’t see how my job performance…

Corporate Grief: When the Workplace Breaks Your Heart

Corporate Grief: When the Workplace Breaks Your Heart

When I transitioned from my private practice as a therapist to leadership consulting in the corporate sector, I figured the psychic heaviness of my role would lift some. I knew that people’s work lives were ridden with relationship conflicts, extreme stress, boredom, and career confusion. They showed up in my therapy office with work complaints…

I just got off a weekly conference call with members of the Circle Up team. The call often runs well over an hour but, today, we wrapped in 45 minutes. And I’m a little sad.  I miss my team. We tend to digress, rarely have an agenda, joke around a fair amount, and get a…

Relational Inflammation: The Value of Rest and Space

Cog-less in the Corporate World

Dear Sally, I could use your wisdom. After an illness, I’ve been on leave from my job for a few months. It makes sense to return, because I gotta eat and money doesn’t grow on trees, but I’m concerned because my heart doesn’t feel in it anymore. I’m worried that my heart wouldn’t be in…

Mindful of the Shadow: Do You Fight or Invite Your Dark Side?

Eric Killough shares the down and dirty truth about meditation and how slowing down our thoughts allows us to come face to face with primitive parts of ourselves. Is it our inner sociopath wanting to run our lives or simply the human animal inside of us who would has a bit of important information?  I…

Retail Disobeyer

Dear Sally, It is clearly the modern way that you can’t live in the moment. You have to get ready for the next thing before you are really in the thing you waited and prepared for. Around here, the Halloween costume stores are open for business. I have taken all the hype and disobeyed it,…

My Guru is a Bay Mare

I met Sally when she was a youngster, just a slight filly fresh off the trailer. I had recently purchased my lovely horse, Rosie, and was knee deep in our love affair when Sally arrived at the barn where I rode at that time. Just your average bay mare, brown coat with black mane and…
