about

Several years ago I began writing one-page reflections on what I saw going on in organizational life.

I scheduled a half-day each month to sit in my office, reflect on my more than 30 years of consulting experience—and write.

We live in a world where news, texting, and emails keep us in a constant buzz—and unless we force ourselves, there is no time to simply stop and smell the roses. This was my attempt to slow myself down. I truly believe reflection is becoming a dying art.

My half-day writing sessions became a personal time for me to reflect, and a perfect outlet to transfer my skills, observations, and insights to others by telling stories.

Little did I realize that I had already been doing this as a professor in a Master’s program. “John, we love your class,” said a student one day after one of my first classes. “You teach us through your stories. We remember stories. Many professors are academics. They teach through theories. It’s more difficult for us to remember theories.”
That simple statement had an impact on me. I had so many stories in my head — on leadership, acts of courage, empowerment, the consulting process, and mistakes that I’ve made; and, what I have found since I’ve begun writing these down is how rewarding it is to give back what I’ve learned.

I hope you enjoy reading this small collection of my musings as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
