(Video) The Paradox of High-Performance Teams: Trust and Vulnerability

By Steve Longan |   May 04, 2016

In this week's Wireboard, I'd like to share deceptively simple video featuring Brené Brown that has profound implications for how we sustainably grow our own work, as well as the work we do with others. First, the video from Inc. Magazine:

Three Reasons Humble People Are Better Leaders (and Three Ways to Become One)

Humble leaders are better leaders.

Your Technology Is Working Against Your Productivity In One Specific Area. Let’s Rewire This!

By Steve Longan |   Mar 30, 2016

First off, let’s all appreciate the irony here. I used technology to compose this article. And unless you’ve hired an assistant to read the internet to you, you’re reading this article on some form of technology.

Fostering Teamwork by Stilling the Lizard Brain

By Steve Scanlon |   Mar 16, 2016

Most animals in the Kingdom travel and live in some kind of grouping. Sure, there are a few exceptions (like lion fish, badgers and anteaters), but most animals rely on the teamwork and group approach to survival. And what’s fascinating to me are the names zoologists give to these groupings:

Rewire Your Commute and You Can Rewire Your Work

By Steve Longan |   Feb 24, 2016

A few months ago, Steve Scanlon wrote a great article/horror story on rewiring our thinking in the context of airline travel. Today I want to write about commuting by car and how it actually shapes the way we think and act once we arrive at our destination. In a few months, someone will probably write about the subway or trains, and then we can have our planes, trains and automobiles trifecta. In the meantime, let’s rewire how we commute!

The Power of Work-Place Rituals: Thriving and Changing Together

By Edith "Edie" Raphael, PhD |   Jan 27, 2016

One of the main topics we address at Rewire is how to manage change. We start with the premise that no one likes change because the most primitive part our brain (often called the Lizard Brain) prefers familiarity. Every time our rational mind wants or needs to do things differently, the Lizard Brain protests…loudly. Individually, we can find ways to quiet our own Lizard Brain (and you can find many of those as you read our articles here on The Wireboard). But I would also like to offer a solution that teams and businesses can implement collectively to buffer the stress of big changes on the work front: the workplace ritual.

It’s Friday! Here Are 3 Ways To Get More From The Weekend

By Steve Longan |   Jan 15, 2016

Ah….the weekend. Over 48 hours of possibilities and opportunities.  The chance to sleep, to get outdoors, to spend time with family and friends, to eat good food, to catch up on chores, to enjoy hobbies…

Five Things You Can Do Today to Increase Focus

By Jason Abell |   Dec 22, 2015

As I reflect on my year at Rewire, one of the things I’m most grateful for are the exceptional new people we’ve brought on board in the past few months.  They are bringing their expertise and experience to enrich the work we’re doing and serve clients Rewire might not reach otherwise. You hopefully were able to read an article from one of these new people this past week. Joe Shaffner’s article touched on the ways that technology drives us to distraction and a few simple solutions to respond to that dynamic.

Are You Going To Enjoy The Fruit Of Your Work?

By Joe Shaffner |   Oct 21, 2015

As I was transitioning to begin working with Rewire this past summer, I had the opportunity to take the month of August off from work. In addition to spending more time with my family and seeing my first son off to college, I was able to spend some quality time with several of my childhood friends in my home state of Maine.  In this article, I'd like to share a snapshot from that time and what we can all learn about sustainably growing our work.

 

What Keeps You Up At Night?

By Jason Abell |   Oct 14, 2015

 

I have run across this question a lot lately. I was in a workshop the other day when it came up. A friend of mine asked this question over lunch recently. And it came up again at leadership summit I facilitated 2 weeks ago. When the same question or theme comes up this many times in this short period of time, I start to pay attention. What's really being asked and what's behind the question, "What keeps you up at night?"

What If Controlling Less Allowed You To Grow More?

By Steve Scanlon |   Sep 30, 2015

Last week some 60 of us gathered in Coronado, California for the purpose of a further Rewiring as individuals and as a group. It was truly a remarkable few days -- evidenced by its lingering and lasting effects on those who came and participated.
