Exceptions Driving Progress (5 min read)

From My Business Caring Formula: Building a New Leadership Lifestyle     “Learn the rules like a pro, so that you can break them like an artist.” - Pablo Picasso We all know that there are many rules that don’t make sense. There are ones that stop or slow down progress and innovation. As I learned from my many life experiences, when you target a goal, believe in it and put in the work; no inadequate rules will stop you from making an exception. Let’s evaluate the exceptions that I am talking about: the ones that drive progress; new ideas; new ways of solving problems; non-conventional ways…

Why curiosity is life changing? (4 min read)

  "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing." by Albert Einstein As I mentioned before, the Internet and technology has helped people research and find their passions and connect with other people faster. Some people think that because of the Internet we have lost the “personal touch.” What has changed is that the “personal touch” no longer means face to face. Thank God for Facebook. “Personal touch” now means, “connected.” You should stay connected with people in person as much as possible, but to expand your Care and passion you can now stay connected with anyone. Yes,…

Do you really know what you care about? (3 min read)

All the information you need is out there. The “connectivity” we talked about is there. It is so easy to find things. You can sit at home. You don’t have to travel. You can access information that used to take years to get, in a matter of minutes. That’s why everything feels so fast paced, like everything is moving so fast, like whiplash. Some people are having trouble processing all this, they are not ready, and they don’t know what to do with all the information. At the heart of all this angst is that people still haven’t decided what they like and what they…

Why do we need a Caring Organization? (7 min read)

Just as technology disrupted the newspaper business (virtually all are kaput), urban transportation (Uber), publishing (hello e-books, goodbye book stores), how hotels do business (Airbnb), photography (remember Kodak?), communications (remember when you talked into a big phone plugged into the wall?), now we have sleek, thin smart phones, not to mention emails, whatsapp, snapchat, skype, googlevoice, facebook, twitter, googlehangout, just to name a few. And now technology is shaking to its core how corporations operate. When technology burst onto the scene it was hailed as a corporate game changer. Work tasks would be dispatched with great alacrity and efficiency. The traditional five-day workweek would shrink…

Positive thinking as a key element for success (4 min read)

Assuming positive thinking and drive is very, very powerful. Positive thinking is another very important element of the Business Caring Formula. There has to be positive energy in the work environment and there has to be positive leadership. Especially now, when the world feels such unrest. No continent feels secure. Not the Middle East, not Eastern Europe, not Asia, not Latin America and not even the United States. The economy’s growth is still slow, companies are laying off thousands of employees, are still letting people go. If you look at the whole picture the negative is looking you back smack in the face. The leaders…

Having a big dream is critical (7 min read)

I have been talking about an importance of each person having a Big Dream and Vision and Plan and Drive to make it happen. It is important to get to know yourself, your people, your environment and align somehow their dreams to the organization’s vision and success. You need to get to know the people who interact and work with and for you. I spend a lot of time with people one on one, during team events and in other settings. I learn about their personality, preferences and their families. I always ask people, “What is your Big Dream?” or “Is there anything special or…

What is in common in caring and great toughness? (8 min read)

It is important not to confuse care with weakness or just keep “helping”. The Caring Organization and the caring culture require great toughness. Not just in moments, but all the time. Being tough one day and then becoming softer or a little bit different person the next is not going to help you get things done. It’s like a speeding train. The train has to stay on that speed. You can slow down a little bit on the turns, but you cannot get off the track. The focus and speed has to be there; otherwise you will not get where you need to go. Same…

Let’s talk about passion (6 min read)

"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious." by Albert Einstein Why having passion is so important? Let’s define what I mean by passion, an internal “drive and desire”. I am constantly talking to many people: young people and increasing the older work population who need to keep working for financial reasons and have retired from their current jobs for whatever reasons, and who want to make new career choices. The first thing I share with them is that we are so lucky to be living now, in the age of this great Internet, connectivity and accessibility. The pace and easiness of obtaining information…

More on passion: Sustaining it (6 min read)

I want to continue our discussion on passion. My last posting was about how you find the passion within you to be happy in your life, work and create a Caring environment. Finding your happiness in life where both your personal life and your work life support and appreciate the passion is a key element in sustaining it. A few months back I organized a work dinner with colleagues and the client. One of my co-workers said he had a date that night and would be unable to attend. I said to him, “If you find it appropriate, bring your date, it’s good for her…
