Human vs Humane

During our extraordinary times, we struggle between human vs humane. There is a call for more kindness and compassion. And yet we observe more intense, emotional and irrational behaviour that often feels angry and frustrated. When we encounter this behaviour, we react defensively.

How to not lose my cool.

I don’t like to lose my cool. When life gets busy and demanding, I have been known to lose my cool. It is not something that I like to admit but I notice it in the tone of my voice, the tension in my jaw and the squinting of my eyes. I get in a reactive mode and in the moment, my concern is not about the feelings of others but rather that others pay attention to me. And although … Read More

Embrace Irrational.

Rational explanations do not explain current leadership behaviour. Given the pace of change and the increasing pressure of demands, leaders at all levels are responding based on their instinct, beliefs and attitudes. When pressure is applied to retrieve rational explanations, perceptions are triggered that ignite inflammatory thoughts and emotions.
