We are ridiculously obsessed with experts in our society. Sure, experts have their place: I’m not keen on the idea of being operated on by an amateur, but we’ve taken things too far. There are risks of being so dependent on, and deferential to, experts. Risk #1: experts have tremendous depth in one particular area […]

      It’s NBA Playoff season, which made me think of coach Phil Jackson.  I have written about Jackson’s brilliant team leadership before. Read about how he chose (not) to deal with a poor performer here. I particularly love one of his quotes: “The strength of the team is each member. The strength of […]

I help people build high performing teams. That’s my job, and more importantly, it’s my passion. In my personal life, I am an equally passionate advocate for mental health. This week, those two parts of my life will come together when I speak at a conference on building resilience in children. The theme of my […]
