Communication Coach

By Stefanie Sample |   Nov 06, 2018

Comprehensively Communicating

Most people who earn a managerial position where they must now begin communicating with an expanded staff are not there because their communication skills are outstanding. Rather, they are really good at what they do. This skill causes them to assume the new managerial position will be easy. However, what can happen is that, inexplicably, those beneath them actually diminish in performance. Why?

It's Not How Good You Are Now, It's How Good You're Gonna' Be: The Role of Coaching in Improvement

By Steve Longan |   Apr 24, 2018

We've been sharing this video featuring Atul Gawande around the Rewire offices lately. And it's not just that he's a proponent of coaching to improve mindsets and outcomes in our work. It's that he's seeking to answer a question that is absolutely vital to the work we all do every day. The question is, "How do people improve in the face of complexity?"

The Fear Of In-Betweens (And Three Ways To Overcome This Fear)

By Edith "Edie" Raphael, PhD |   Oct 17, 2017

“To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.”   -Soren Kierkegaard
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”   -Lao Tzu

Today’s Wireboard starts with a little physical activity. And given the fact that sitting is the new smoking, we could all use it! It’s easy and there are just three steps. I’ll wait while you do them:

  1. Stand up.
  2. Take the slowest step forward you’ve ever taken.
  3. Take a couple more just as slowly.

What was that like for you? Notice anything? When I did this exercise, I noticed two things: First, when we’re walking, we’re constantly shifting weight between one leg and then the other. Second, there’s a subtle act of balance when we only have one foot on the ground. But we usually don’t notice the shifting or balance because we do it so quickly and we’ve been walking for so many years.

A True Story About What's on the Other Side of Rewiring

By Steve Scanlon |   Sep 21, 2017

The articles we write are intended to communicate the Rewire way of thinking. Our hope is that we bring a blend of applicable science to your everyday work and life. As such, we always try to connect outside, real-world research to every article. Today, however, I am going to take a brief departure from that and simply offer a personal story about the power of a mind that is being rewired.

If You Want Change, Start with Stillness

By Steve Scanlon |   Jan 20, 2017

The original idea that fueled the birth of Rewire, Inc. was that human beings, throughout our entire lives, have the capacity to change. It was that simple. It still is. This is the root belief that we at Rewire keep coming back to: change in our thinking and change in our action is not only possible but could be at the very core of what makes us fully human.

What Will Be the Markers in Your Life?

By Jason Abell |   Dec 27, 2016

This summer, my son JJ and I hiked the 40-mile section of the Appalachian Trail (AT) that stretches from the northern border of Maryland at the Pennsylvania line to a southern Maryland border at Virginia’s Harpers Ferry. While this trip created many memories for me and JJ, there is something that still sticks out in my mind from the hike: the white blazes.

A 3-Stage Model for Growth Leadership (And Learning)

By Steve Scanlon |   Oct 28, 2016

I have spent the better part of the last 17 years with the vocation of helping people improve —improve their lives, their businesses, their sales, their teams, etc. My primary way of working with people has been what some refer to as “coaching.” I don’t particularly attach myself to that category today, but if it helps people understand what we do, then so be it.

The Power We Have for Change Is Real

By Steve Scanlon |   Oct 05, 2016

One of the greatest gifts in the world is having both the desire and ability to change. You might not think of these as a gift, but how many of you know of someone who really needs to change, but has no desire to?

This is why I say the desire and ability to change is one of the greatest gifts we can have. And it is very likely that if you are reading this article that you are one of those with the power (desire + ability) to change.

How a 25-Year-Old Bicycle Can Help You Start Now

By Jason Abell |   May 02, 2016

In the fall of 1992, an enthusiastic, bright student bought a raffle ticket at a college fundraiser for a mission trip to Mexico that she would be involved with that December. She had never won a raffle before and didn’t think of herself as especially lucky, but this was for a good cause, “So why not buy a ticket?” she thought.
