Virus, Fear, Crisis, Home-office!… From an obligation to an OPPORTUNITY

“More than 90 percent of our FEARS never become a reality. Even so it still affects us and makes us suffer…” In a conversation with a client in one of our executive coaching sessions, during these past days that have been reflected of so much confusion and anguish, he gave me an interesting reflection against the famous […]

Time Management?… Start with your Energy!

“We cannot create time – there are only 24hrs / 7-, but we can create ENERGY for our day to day.” This principle has made a radical change in the way thousands of managers have begun to rethink how to cope with their Sustained High Performance like any elite athletes would do: It’s no longer […]

FOCUS…, On what depends on you!

A common consultation in sports psychology, and also in my work with executives, is the “improvement of concentration.” What is concentration? A simple definition tells us that it is the ATTENTION sustained over time. A few years ago, I had a case that I want to share today. A talented young high-performing athlete when faced […]

Transcend to win?… Teamwork!

Personally, Iceland and Argentina are very close to me. Professionally, with their two recent sporting feats, they gave me a lesson in what a real Teamwork is. In the last FIFA World Cup 2018, a soccer world tournament, the Nordic Team has achieved what many believed to be a “surprising” classification. Yes, with only 100 […]

If it’s Always Someone Else’s Fault… Watch out! You’re a Victim!

For a while now, I’ve been working with executives from a well-known multinational that decided to foster accountability among its employees. I love working with companies that dare to explicitly formulate and communicate their corporate values and ensure that they’re put into practice. It’s key for corporate long-term success! Accountability is often associated with the […]

Can Executives Show Vulnerability…?

Fortunately, the image of the “all-knowing, all-doing” boss is becoming increasingly questioned in leadership theory. Unfortunately, the reality in many organizations remains just that: just theory. In practice, many executives advance in their careers with an image of themselves that, over time, leads to negative repercussions on both individual and organizational levels. If you look […]

If You Leave Without Learning… History Will Repeat Itself!

My work with executives often starts off by listening to their common complaints. What do they complain about?: Their bosses Their colleagues Their collaborators Their job responsibilities… … These situations can become intolerable for them. One day, they get fed up and decide the moment has come for a change. They start looking for a […]

Do You Want to Be Right or Do You Want to Be Happy?… You Choose!

Disappointed, misunderstood, dejected and a step away from throwing in the towel. That’s how one of my executive clients felt following the latest decisions announced at her company. She was in total disagreement with these decisions and the criteria behind them. She was only able to see worst-case scenarios for her and the organization. “They’re […]

Who Takes Care of the Leader?

In my sessions with coaches and executives, they often talk about what they love about working with their teams. They recall great moments when leadership suddenly merged into happiness. When the team needs them the most, they – leaders – always want to be a part of it, and in most cases, they are! But […]

Attitude is an Action Verb!

I worked with an executive a while back who had a very specific objective: “I want to improve my attitude!”… was the first thing he told me. People tend to talk a lot about attitude since we all question it and nearly always search for it. On this occasion, I asked him for his definition […]
