Coaching is a proven way to unlock your potential and up your game, in your life and your career. Unsurprisingly, as an astrophysicist I have a unique perspective on just what that means.

How our Pleistocene brains (mis)handle modern threats

A strong fight-or-flight reaction served our evolutionary ancestors well. If the leopard catches you, that’s it! But today a visceral response to a not-so-mortal threat seldom improves things. If you want to get a handle on those intense, counterproductive bouts of emotion, start by understanding where fight-or-flight came from in the first place.

Season’s Greetings 2016!

The shortest day of the year has come and gone! Whether you wish your fellows a Merry Christmas, Happy Festivus, or just peace, joy, and happiness in their lives, the changing of the seasons marks a time of both celebration and new commitment. My wish for you is to see that new commitment translate into the real change you want in your life. Season’s Greetings!

It can feel really good to call someone out when they cross a line. But if you want to accomplishing something positive, tweeting from the hip is probably the wrong way to go.

Professionals Need Coaches Too

Executives use coaching to reach their full potential while maintaining balance in their lives. Professionals could learn a lot from their example.

Over his 30 year career as an internationally known astrophysicist, Dr. Jeff Hester was a key member of the team that repaired the Hubble Space Telescope. With one foot always on the frontiers of knowledge, he has been mentor, coach, team leader, award-winning teacher, administrator and speaker, to name a few of the hats he has worn. His Hubble image, the Pillars of Creation, was chosen by Time Magazine as among the 100 most influential photographs in history.
