OK, I admit that this isn't the most tasteful headline but it DOES say it all. How many times have all of us been in that place where the way is not clear. It could be what to do in our career, what to do in our marriage, or what to do to grow the company. We're stuck. No doubt about it: our shoe seems nailed in one place and we circle back to the same lil 'ole conversation. Over and over. We could almost repeat it verbatim.

Short of waiting for a crisis to shake us loose, here's a resource: Michael Bungay Stanier, 2006 Canadian Coach of the Year - I just adore his coaching tool that uses provocative quotes, tiny inspiring stories with targeted questions, and powerful models. Put them together and you are jolted into fresh thinking. It's a tool I use when coaching my clients and it makes for fascinating, honest team conversation. This coaching tool is currently only available at There's no reason to stay stuck. If you need a nudge - a 'shadow' as one client called me - just holler. Because stuck sucks!
