How to Foster Development in People, Relationships and Organizations
Leaders, educators, parents, supervisors are all in the same profession – they help people grow. We grow through our relationships. It is through your relationship to others that you can help them grow. And it is through your relationships that you grow as well.
I help people help people grow.
- To develop as an person, reflect continuously on your values.
- To develop as an person, cultivate a growth mindset and move slowly toward becoming the person you want to be.
- To raise caring and responsible children, be both responsive and demanding.
- To educate, teach for mastery. Don't stop teaching until students learn.
- Approach every conflict as an opportunity for problem solving and growth.
- To change a system, tweak one important part of it and track how change ripples through the system. Reflect and repeat.
- To lead, foster deep collaboration among constituents toward shared goals.
- To lead, grant responsibility to your workforce based on their passions and strengths.
When something develops, it becomes a better version of itself. I help people and organizations cultivate better versions of themselves and of the people they wish to help grow.
