My mama bear spirit surfaced this weekend. And, she was in full attack mode. Protective of her cub, the claws came out and the teeth were gnashed! And yet, my cub was fine...in fact, he was better than his mother.
How do we reconcile the "less than perfect" facets of ourselves with our vision of how we want to be? There are growing pains. Are we w ...
As coaches, we speak alot about the importance of energy renewal in four important areas: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. In training, we brainstorm about different options for each. When we coach individuals, we continually go back to "what are you doing to renew yourself?". We personally commit to renewing ourselves in each area as wel ...

Lately, I have been intrigued by a concept that a coach on our team used during a recent strategic planning session. "The answer to how is Yes!"
I have been noticing with myself how often I begin thinking of all the answers to the "how" questions. When a new idea or concept comes into play I start with the endless "to do" lists or all the "should ...
Who is Ralph Simone? Well, I'm not really sure yet – but most of the time I see myself as someone who is on a journey of learning how to “slow down to go faster.”
I am someone who enjoys life, most of the time, or at least when I allow things to unfold at their own pace and speed. I enjoy learning and probably more than I am willing to admit, I enjoy questioning things – beliefs, ideas, and practices - not so much because I think I'm right but because I like to challenge myself to consider that there are many, many, different ways to handle any situation.
I enjoy playing with new concepts regarding what is possible in the mental, and physical dimensions of our lives. I enjoy people, but more importantly I enjoy experimenting with different ways to transcend my various self-imposed limitations and to teach others how to do the same.
I like teaching myself and others how to embrace the principles of personal responsibility.
I like challenges – but not in the way I used to. I am less and less enamored with the result and more and more intrigued about what I learn in the process.
I am not attempting to WOW anyone with what little I know, but would like to guide each of you to think just a little bit differently about who you are, what you do, and how you do it.
My son and I were on our way to karate class when the instrument panel of my car flashed, Cruise Control Inoperative. Without hesitation I immediately went into problem solving mode, instructing my son to retrieve the owner's manual from the glove compartment, to look up the problem.
And then in a moment, that I really can't explain - I had an ins ...
While watching both of my children diligently perform their homework one evening, I couldn't help but conclude that homework provides each of us with our initial leadership practices.
Practice is defined as repeated performance or systematic exercise for the purpose of acquiring skill or proficiency. And as students of life, just as students in sc ...
Think about a time when you felt most free.When was it? What were your life circumstances? For me it was during my college days. Although I didn't own much then, in fact everything I did own fit comfortably into the 1968 Chevelle that I inherited from my grandfather. But this was a time when I was free to dream, free to go, free to choose whether I ...
Perhaps my interest in meditation started with my own need to slow down and sit still and to just develop more patience for what is. Or maybe it is rooted in my need to be a peaceful being. But in the end my intention is to assist myself and others to gain perspective.
Sometimes in my search for health, happiness, and well being, I tend to make it ...
I was observing some casual conversation recently where everyone is doing great. The business is great, the family is doing well, just returned from a wonderful vacation, blah, blah, blah..... While I am confident that some of what people were exchanging was true, each of the interactions seemed to lack some level of authenticity. It is almost as i ...

Last week, the guest speaker of SheForward (http://discoverpls.com/index.php/calendar)
shared one of her favorite quotes: “To thine own self be true…”, William Shakespeare.
This in follow-up to the question: What advice would you give a young manager beginning to develop their leadership style? Her response, be yourself, be genuine, be authentic. ...
I’m done with feeling guilty! I’ve discovered that feeling guilty is really about a limiting belief I’m holding about myself, others, a situation or an event. It’s a fictitious expectation – a bar I’ve set that’s unsubstantiated.
Here’s a new twist: guilt is a reminder that something has temporarily clouded the vision of who I want to be. St ...
"Gifted leadership occurs where heart and head - feeling and thought - meet. These are the two wings that allow a leader to soar." - quote from Primal Leadership, Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence", Daniel Goleman.
I believe there's a natural tendency in all of us to lean more into the thought of leadership, leading from the head, and ...
I read an article in the Sunday paper a few weeks back titled “The world is your oyster – if you pry it open”, written by Bruce Ramsey of The Seattle Times. He begins with advice to graduates, "Some time in your life, live outside the United States. Not only will you be in another world, you will more clearly see the world you came from, and who ...
