Our family just held our annual family reunion.  It was an amazing 3-day event with up to 60 people participating in the main event on Saturday.  Participants ranged from 7-months to 86-years old.  Pulling off an event of this magnitude with such a varying age range can be …

I come from a family of swimmers. At a point in time, all five of the siblings in my family were on swim teams. I was the youngest at the age of six with my oldest brother being 14. I can’t imagine the scheduling chaos in our family …

The power of mind mapping.

Cindy Jobs Uncategorized

Sometimes making progress is really, really hard.  Even when we have a very clear idea of where we want to end up, we just can’t seem to make it through the decision-making and execution process. Why is that? There are too many options. The scope is ambiguous. We …

“I don’t know.”

Cindy Jobs Organization, Uncategorized

“I don’t know.” was one of the phrases I previously feared using the most. Now I embrace it. What did I used to think “I don’t know.” said about me? I was uninformed. I was unprepared. I wasn’t as good as someone else. I was vulnerable and weak. …

“I’m curious . . . . “

Cindy Jobs Uncategorized

Synergy happens when opposite perspectives are explored. It is human nature to come at any situation with our own personal history and bias.  It’s difficult to be understanding and empathic with someone else’s perspective if we haven’t experienced their experiences. When I was a Director at Macy’s, I …

Are you working with boulders or pebbles?

Cindy Jobs Uncategorized

Things can be so dog-gone overwhelming sometimes, can’t they? I worked with a couple clients last week that were paralyzed by their “to do” lists.  The lists were so long and the projects were so daunting that the default action was inaction. They were trying to work with …
