Life in Flight

Imagine yourself as a leader moving through time and space. In that process, there are four ever-present forces that continually shape your path: Lift, Weight, Thrust, and Drag. Within each of these forces are stories from your experience that either pull you forward and up or backward and down. You are always at the "Now" point. Where you go, however, is a function of how you navigate these forces. This diagram will offer some novel ways to track your path and the stories that guide it. (download pdf)

The Observer I Am

What affects how you see and interact (i.e., act and react) with the world around you? When your words and actions are not yielding the results you want, do you simply try some new actions? When might that not be enough to generate desirable results? What other ways might you change that could provide different actions and more desirable results? How can you shift your “Observer I Am”?
