  • Only change can happen, when you change yourself - Thoughts on change, responsibility, and ruling your own life… …only change can happen, when you change yourself… So many versions exist for the lyrics of this song that I have tried to get together the best, most accurate version: It’s time for everybodyListen to the sound ofAll the lonely people whoLive beneath the groundDon’t listen to anotherJust listen to yourselfCause only change can happenWhen you change yourself I won’t runI won’t hideI only want to liveTo live my life Breathe out painI’m the ruler of my worldBreathe in peaceI’m the ruler of my world Have courage of convictionIn everything you …
  • Questions that Create Contrast - By Sonya Yeh Spencer,  Word count: 183 A client came to me because she just can not decide if she should start her own business and leave the family business, that her father wishes she can take over one day. She has been struggling with making a decision for six months, and she was feeling extremely stressed, guilty with an array of self doubts. One of the exercises I took her through sent her spinning in her head and got her to think of her dilemma from a very different perspective. Here are the questions that I asked her

  • A Theory of Everything: An Integral Vision for Business, Politics, Science and Spirituality - I enjoy having a theory that covers everything, at least at a broad 50,000ft view, and one which also makes some sense right down to the microcosms that we live with. It is efficient to have a unifying theory, but it also makes sense. Having already studied Spiral Dynamics which for me makes sense of all the different theories of human behaviour, T.O.E. provides a wider view. Ken Wilber explains in a lot of detail how the All Quadrants, All Levels and eventually All Lines works as a model and it makes a lot of sense. He also describes many …

  • Blue-Sky Transformation joins the International Trainers Academy of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (ITANLP) -

    I as the co-creator of NLP and the New Code and Carmen Bostic St Clair, as the co-developer of the new code have carefully selected Michael Carroll as our co-worker and colleague to establish and operate the International Trainers Academy of NLP. The present existing organizations purporting to represent quality standards in NLP are from my point of view seriously lacking in precisely that avowed purpose – namely, the setting and maintenance of quality requirements in the training and transfer of the patterning of NLP to students seeking mastery in the field. In particular, the behavior of these would-be Trainers and Training Institutes are consistently marked by one of more of the following defects:

    1. the drift towards intellectualization of the patterning: students who are issued certificates at the practitioner level, for example and are able to speak coherently about the patterns but are UNABLE to actually apply them in real time with actual clients –students with left brain representations of the patterning and little, if any, behavioral competency. At the practitioner level of certification, the criterion is behavioral competency. To achieve verbal adroitness in speaking about the patterns without the ability to perform is a travesty and such intellectual “competency” will likely constitute an impediment to actual competence
    2. written examinations in lieu of tests of behavioral competency: written, left-brained tests are NEVER an appropriate substitute for demonstrations of behavioral competency, the measure of effective training
    3. the increasing number of so-called NLP Trainers who themselves are quite clearly incongruent with the message they carry

  • Jobs Are The New Assets - 1. Jobs Are The New Assets – 10 Ideas Changing the World Right Now – TIME Quoting from the article… That was neatly explained away by the “wealth effect”: we spent money we didn’t have because we felt — and technically were — richer because of our assets. All the while, we blissfully ignored a little concept economists like to call human capital. The cognition you’ve got up there in your head — your education and training — it’s worth something. We can extract value not just from our homes and our portfolios but from ourselves as well. The mechanism …
  • An 18-Minute Plan for Managing Your Day – Peter Bregman – HarvardBusiness.org - An 18-Minute Plan for Managing Your Day – Peter Bregman – HarvardBusiness.org Excerpt… Yesterday started with the best of intentions. I walked into my office in the morning with a vague sense of what I wanted to accomplish. Then I sat down, turned on my computer, and checked my email. Two hours later, after fighting several fires, solving other people’s problems, and dealing with whatever happened to be thrown at me through my computer and phone, I could hardly remember what I had set out to accomplish when I first turned on my computer. I’d been ambushed. And I know …
