Stepping Out

It's been two weeks since the last newsletter and the amount of unrest and injustice happening hasn't diminished.  I've been reading and watching to understand racism and white privilege so I understand more about myself and ways I can get into action. Nesso Strategies was built on a platform of world domination for Good™, [...]

Water Views

Recently San Diego opened our beaches for swimming and surfing. This was just after a period of time where the bioluminescence caused the water to glow in the hours after sunset. This beautiful glow is the production and emission of light from organisms, especially algae, which are also associated in the daylight with what [...]

Kickball Chains

I’ve been an athlete as long as I can remember. Playing sports of all kinds, even ones that I’m not sure classify as a sport (marbles, for instance). A number of years ago, on my journey of self-exploration and creativity, I decided to learn to dance. In particular, I decided to learn to line [...]

Good or Good Enough?

A recent dialogue among a leadership team was about how to provide feedback to the next level leaders. The conversation evolved into how we rate effort in ourselves, as a path to rating effort in those we evaluate. Think for a moment about how much of what we expect of others’ lives in our expectation [...]

A Little Kindness Today

 As we exit the busiest time for travel (holiday season), and enter the messiest for weather, I find myself with a little extra airport time while planes (or runways) de-ice and people get testy.  I'm sure you know what I mean, and perhaps have even felt that energy yourself now and again. In those moments of [...]

By the time you read this there will be about 60 days left in this decade. I heard this last week at a conference, and I paused. What had I done in this decade? And what would I do in the next? You remember 2010, right? The year Instagram was founded. The northeast US experienced the [...]

Raising Awareness

Self-awareness is the cornerstone of leadership, and plays a large part in advancing your career. Living in a 24/7 world, with incredible distractors all around, what can be done to raise the bar without taxing your time clock? What if we use the same concept that we approach employee evaluations with – start, stop, continue? [...]

Handling the Food

Years ago, when I was first entering the world of full time management, some words of advice were given to me that recently resurfaced in a client conversation: don't handle the food. The conversation all those years back was about establishing myself as a leader (at a young age) and that no matter how easy it might [...]

I Can’t…

Worst sentence starter ever! And how often does it start your sentences? I’m returning from my annual adventures at the USA Volleyball Adult National Championships where I competed with a new group of women. I begin training my body in January, because when the tournament becomes the most challenging (in the medal rounds), I want [...]
