The Planning Doing Cycle http://seapointcenter.com/planning-doing-cycle/ http://seapointcenter.com/planning-doing-cycle/#comments Tue, 10 May 2016 14:51:32 +0000 http://seapointcenter.com/?p=13143 Rarely will you have the luxury of time to plan everything out before you start a new project or change initiative. And even if you do, it’s likely that unforeseen circumstances will send you back to the drawing board. However, jumping ahead with no plans is a recipe for disaster. Instead of planning and then […]

The True Test of a Vision http://seapointcenter.com/true-test-of-a-vision/ http://seapointcenter.com/true-test-of-a-vision/#comments Tue, 26 Apr 2016 12:54:32 +0000 http://seapointcenter.com/?p=13064 The true test of a vision is whether it continues to inspire and guide people after the leader is gone.

Time and again, we see examples of companies that […]

Mindfulness and Vision are Complementary http://seapointcenter.com/mindfulness-and-vision/ http://seapointcenter.com/mindfulness-and-vision/#comments Tue, 19 Apr 2016 14:06:35 +0000 http://seapointcenter.com/?p=13035 As mindfulness comes more and more into the mainstream and business world, I am often asked where vision fits. Since mindfulness is about being fully present with the experience of each moment and vision is about a future you desire, how can you do both at the same time?

“Forgive and Live” to Increase Personal Mastery http://seapointcenter.com/forgive-and-live/ http://seapointcenter.com/forgive-and-live/#comments Tue, 12 Apr 2016 11:12:28 +0000 http://seapointcenter.com/?p=12978 I recently sent a tweet, “When you forgive, the person who benefits most is yourself.” Someone replied, “I”ll never forgive because what they did was unforgiveable.” I understand that feeling because I’ve experienced it myself. When you’ve been betrayed by someone you trusted or have been injured by someone who had power over you (like […]

Is Vision Relevant in 2016? http://seapointcenter.com/is-vision-relevant-in-2016/ http://seapointcenter.com/is-vision-relevant-in-2016/#comments Tue, 05 Apr 2016 11:06:59 +0000 http://seapointcenter.com/?p=12905 In 2011, I asked What Happened to Vision? It generated a fascinating, thought-provoking conversation. When presenting my question, I had noted: Studies of high performing organizations show over and over again that shared vision is one of the key differentiators.
