Totally obvious / Lo que es obvio

Totally obvious

After some weeks away, I’m here again, hoping that you too had some time to do nothing and have fun. During this time off, I reflected about how our context impact our lives. And, being that important, how there are things that we take for granted, and never question because it’s the water we swim …

Time to rest / Tiempo para descansar

Time to rest

This is my last post before my summer holidays. I will be back with more content on September. With the years, I understand the importance of having time to rest, and recharge my batteries for the next period. Without it, it’s impossible for me being at 100% once I get back to work. I talk …

Being proactive / ser proactivo

Being proactive

Weeks ago, I talked about autonomy, a sine-qua-non condition to intrinsically motivate people. On the other side, organizations need proactive people to make things happen. Being proactive is an essential behavior in today’s context, in which hierarchy is flattering. Proactivity is acting with anticipation of future problems, needs, or changes without waiting for things to …

Luck / suerte

Luck

I have luck. Last Friday I was invited, jointly with a friend, an executive in a Swedish company, to give the closing lecture in a leadership course. The professor, another friend of ours, asked us to provide his students with some experiences and thoughts that can eventually help them in their professional careers. While preparing …

Right attitude / actitud adecuada

Right attitude

The power of choice and right attitude are up to you. Take a minute and read it again. How does it feel? Victor Frankl says in his book, Man’s search for meaning, “everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any …

boost creativity / disparar la creatividad

Boost creativity

Pablo Picasso once said that all children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up. Children are incredibly imaginative, creative, full of resources; they can easily think out-of-the-box, amazing their grown-ups in every possible way. Therefore, how about connecting with our inner child to boost creativity? Good artists copy, …

Impostor syndrome / Síndrome del impostor

Impostor syndrome

I’m not worthy. I’m not qualified enough to do this. Not only that, but I’m a poser. This is a fear that at times strikes many of us. This is the impostor syndrome: feeling deeply insecure on the inside, wondering who you are to do what you’re about to do. Impostor syndrome is one of …

Difficult situations / Situaciones difíciles

Difficult situations

After releasing my post last week, I received some feedback, which I really appreciate. It seems easier to have a love-centred mindset when things go well. But, and here goes the issue, a leader must sometimes face difficult situations such as firing people or communicate tough decisions. How does love work in these moments? Is …

Impact of love / impacto del amor

Impact of love

Thinking about how to start this new year in the blog, I’d want to bring something that many people consider far away from business. We don’t usually talk much about love in our professional lives. At least as far as collective thinking is concerned, love is something belonging to a more intimate circle. That’s why …

Commitment / Compromiso

Commitment

Tomorrow, it will be a year since I started this blog. Maybe because of this, I feel like talking about commitment and how it shapes our relationships. Meeting you here every week is not easy. It requires time and effort. When things go smooth, and I have fewer things on my plate, I can plan, …
