THE NEW NORMAL – HOW DO YOU FIT IN?

Posted on 06/30/2020 in Executive Coaching, Featured Articles, Leadership by Delta Associates

Robert Redfield, US CDC Director, recently stated grimly, “The Covid-19 virus has brought this nation to its knees.”  As a member clearly of the at risk population, I respectfully and strongly object to what the Center for Disease Control director says. Corona Virus neither has not or will not bring us to our knees.  Our reaction to the Corona Virus is the only thing that can bring us to our knees. I’m hugely inspired by the resilience of people around the world during the Covid-19[…]

Posted on 06/23/2020 in Executive Coaching, Featured Articles by Jack Speer

Self talk . . . what you tell yourself, is the key factor of your life. . . you may be degreed from an Ivy League university, a distinguished member of Mensa, and voted most likely to succeed . . . . but what you say to yourself moment by moment, day by day–will determine your happiness and success. What is the Committee Telling Me? Robert Fulghum, (All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten), described his inner conversations as “The Committee.” In[…]

WHO AM I? — IN A WORLD OF CHAOS?

Posted on 06/09/2020 in Executive Coaching, Featured Articles, Other Articles by Jack Speer

As countries reopen businesses across the world after so long in lockdown, it’s a little bit like reopening ourselves and our own personalities. How do we maintain a sense of personal identity in a world where we are asked to relinquish significant decision-making–like where physically to work, how to socialize, how near to stand to another person—in order to serve the greater good of preserving lives?  How do I maintain the “essential me” when I have given up personal control of the most important decisions[…]

BLACK LIVES MATTER – WHAT DO WE DO NEXT?

Posted on 06/16/2020 in Featured Articles, Other Articles by Jack Speer

“Black Lives Matter!”  We see throngs of thousands of people in the middle of a global pandemic in every city who shout the truth from the housetops. The murder of George Floyd over a 20 dollar bill, was for me the dramatic definition of “institutional racism.”  I knew that if I had been in the same situation, as a white man, I would not have been murdered. But what can I do now? The last thing we need is a predictable corporate statement.  What is[…]

Lockdown Relived – What I Have Learned from Sheltering in Place

Posted on 05/26/2020 in 360 Degree Assesssment, Executive Coaching, Featured Articles by Delta Associates

How did you learn that the world economy was suddenly locking down at lightning speed? How did you find out about “shelter in place?” What was your reaction when you saw restaurants and stores close down and streets emptying? What were you thinking?  How did you react? What’s the date?  When did it all begin? The lockdown date that the US seems to be settling on March 15th as the beginning of the lockdown.  It is the date that will go into history books.  This[…]

Beyond Fast: Agility – the New Plan to Play to Win

Posted on 05/19/2020 in Executive Coaching, Featured Articles by Delta Associates

Working remotely from home in a pandemic–with technology that doesn’t always work–can be tough.  It  can make  days that glom together seem like a long, never ending slog.  It can feel like rowing a kayak down a fast moving river through white rapids–with a broken broom stick.  It takes a new agility, moving into waters where we’ve never been before. When I think of agility I think of Shaquille O’Neal.   He had an unheard of physique for a professional basketball player, totally unsuited for the game. […]
