Are You a Boss Willing to Lead Your Team?

In my last blog, What Kind of A Boss Are You? , we saw that "Team Body" does the best job it can given the leadership, tools and materials provided by its "Mind-Boss". The body gives feedback all the time about whether the leadership and materials are sufficient or not. How do you know? It tells you. It speaks. As the boss, you might not have ever learned its language (who thought you needed to?) Maybe you've relied on interpreters.

Certainly, sales messaging touting pharmaceuticals as the "best" means to "treat" the body or mind perpetuates that conditioning and belief system. The indoctrination is pervasive and commonplace. It has simply become ACCEPTED that when one takes prescription meds or over-the-counter drugs to EXPECT side effects. My question is: WHY is that acceptable? ... Read More
