#11 – The Mirror Is a Great Place to Start

by Sue Hawkes

#11 The Mirror is a Great Place to Start I was recently at a quarterly EOS conference with my fellow implementers. We always share “AHAs” to provide opportunities for learning with one another. We exchange wisdom for the learning available to each other and it’s always worthwhile. I shared how there are times when I notice patterns in my facilitation.…

#10 – Urgency vs. Desperation

by Sue Hawkes

#10 Urgency vs. Desperation Urgency and desperation; they can appear so similar we confuse them when the stakes are high and timelines are short, yet they are very different. Perhaps they are cousins from the same family, one on the abundance side and one on the scarce side. Urgency breeds innovation, disruption and intentional immediacy. Desperation breeds pressure, neediness and…

#9 – Choosing Your Ride

by Sue Hawkes

#9 Choosing Your Ride “I’m afraid of what might happen…” Really, do you like roller coasters? I’ve asked people this question for years when they talk about being afraid to do something. Some people love roller coasters and some people are scared of roller coasters and would rather do anything than ride on one; rarely are people ambivalent about riding…

#8 – Patience

by Sue Hawkes

#8 Patience Patience is a virtue most people I know sincerely struggle with. It’s something results oriented, fast-paced, get it done, “I’m filling my calendar to the max” people find hard to conceive of. And yet it’s the place where a majority of the “good stuff” in life finds you. When you’re not pushing, hustling, efforting and “making it happen.”…

#7 – Playing to WIN

by Sue Hawkes

#7 Playing to WIN In blog #3, Playing Not to Lose, I showed a diagram about how people “play” in the game of life. I explained that what’s most impactful about the model for me is that very few people ever play to “WIN.” Most of us “play not to lose.” It’s safer there. And I offered there’s only one…

#6 – Reaction's Don't Lie

by Sue Hawkes

#6 – Reactions Don’t Lie Whenever I find myself triggered by an event, I know there’s learning available to me. If I bypass the opportunity to evaluate my reaction, I become a victim of whatever happened and can guarantee the next time a similar event occurs, I’ll react again – only it will be stronger and more automatic. If I’m…

#5 – Small Things

by Sue Hawkes

#5 Small Things As I sit on the plane during a busy week with one more day to work, looking forward to a full Friday and an equally full weekend, it occurs to me the little things really are the big things in life. It’s about having appreciation for the things my family, team and friends do that consistently make…

#2 – The Essence of Conflict

by Sue Hawkes

#2 – The Essence of Conflict At its essence, most conflict is an argument between two things: intent and impact. One person claims their feelings are a direct result of the other persons words and actions, and the other person claims they had no intent to cause any of that impact. It’s simple really, but usually tough to de-tangle. There’s…
