"You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him discover it in himself."
Galileo Galilei

Above saying reminded me of what Suzanne Evans posted on Facebook this week:

" I have the hardest job on the planet. Not coaching people to their full potential, but walking away from people with potential. I just can't want it more than you. "

It got 33 comments - among them:

David Neagle It's heartbreaking but has to be done

Baeth Davis Coach Martha Beck says, "I love you but I don't care what you do." That's how I feel. I'm not attached. However, no point in working with folks who won't take action. It becomes a pointless exercise in: "I'm showing up to my coaching call, so I think I'm doing something, even though I've done nothing." Fear is reptile brain activity. At a certain point, you need to know how your brain actually runs you - and start managing it. Most people operate on emotional base instinct and call 'paying the bills."

Something to think about!

This week we added 61 teleseminars and 7 live events to the Calendar of Events.  For example:

               Don Miguel Ruiz - author of "The Four Agreements" is talking to Barbara Marx Hubbard on Aug. 1 re. "Making a New Agreement to Live Your Life in Truth and Integrity".

               Wendy Weiss & Adam Urbanski talk about "Lead Generation" on Aug. 2.

               Angela Johnson is interviewing Paige Stapleton & Brian Stark re. "Make More Money with Your Message" on Aug. 2.

               Suzanne Evans talks about "Be the Change" event on Aug. 2 at 8 p.m.

Personal Notes:

I am in Denmark at the moment visiting my family and my uncle just made me a delicious lunch complete with a very cold beer and very cold schnapps, straight from the freezer. The weather is very nice, not warm like at home, but very sunny. 

My uncle's farm house ...

I wish you warm greetings from here and best wishes for a successful and fulfilling week.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us...And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. ~ 

Marianne Williamson

 On another note I read approximately 250 broadcasts per day, some interesting and others not so --- but the following article caught my attention. It was posted on July 21, 2011 on Women on Business:

Post by Jane K. Stimmler, contributing Women on Business writer
Making a case for more female participation on Boards of Directors, executive groups, strategic committees, project task forces or, well, just about any group, just got a little easier. A recent research study described in June’s Harvard Business Review submits that having a group comprised of more women will ultimately lead to greater success. Why? Because, with women participating – and the more women the better – a group’s “collective intelligence” rises, giving the group a higher score on the tasks they were given. Even the teams which had members with higher IQs didn’t score as high as the teams with women.
Professors Anita Woolley and Thomas Malone compared the study teams after they asked them to complete several tasks including brainstorming, decision-making, and complex problem-solving. They found that “many of the factors you might think would be predictive of group performance were not…” Though they caution the findings are preliminary, “if a group includes more women, its collective intelligence rises.” They went on to point out that part of the findings can be explained by differences in social sensitivity, which was also found to be important to group performance. Many past studies have shown that women tend to score higher than men in social sensitivity skills such as listening, collaborating and sharing constructive criticism.
Another interesting aspect of the study is that the groups in which individuals dominated the conversations did not do very well. I’m sure that most of us have sat in a group where one or two people, in my experience usually men, keep others (women) from contributing through a form of intimidation. They continue to perpetuate boys’ club behavior by wielding their seniority, talking loudly, and playing off each other to dominate meetings. These tactics have now been shown to yield inferior results.
Instead of advising women to try to fit into the male-populated cultures that have existed in the past, this research helps make the case that perhaps the culture has some things to learn from us instead. Imagine that! According to this and other research on the proven benefits of engaging women, businesses should be fighting to get more women on their teams for one simple reason – it’s to their advantage. Hopefully, as time goes one and with more confirming data, all businesses will see this as a priority."
I wish you a pleasant week and would enjoy reading your comments and suggestions to the blog.

Thank you
