  • Personal Development Program May 16, 2023
    “The plan is to really use this as a personal development program for our caregivers. We love to hire from within. Health care is complicated. Providence is a very large, complicated health care organization too, so if you hire in from the outside it takes people a long time to understand the culture and get […]
  • General Business May 16, 2023
    The Pacific Institute “ignited a future perspective, and consequent positive energy, when it launched the Imagine 21® program to all employees and to all levels of supervision,” Olivier said. This “engaged the employees in self-discovery, practicing new learning, setting goals, and being accountable for the desired future.”-Leon Olivier President Connecticut Light & Power
  • Financial Institution May 16, 2023
    “The Pacific Institute has helped us unleash our potential. We are a different bank than the one they first started working with. Then, we were stable horses. Now we’re a herd of thoroughbreds. They have helped us become more agile, better thinkers, better team players, more courageous. Without them, we wouldn’t have been ‘ready’. As […]
  • Embarking on the Ship of Change January 31, 2022
    We like to think that the subject of “change” is something “new” or at least too familiar to our lives today. The human mind has been trying to grasp “change” for a very long time. Borrowing from a very old Roman, “The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.” Thank you, […]
  • The Power of Your Word January 28, 2022
    How good are you at keeping agreements . . . with yourself? Think about this, for a moment. If we have been doing our jobs right this past week or so, you probably had an exciting time, experimenting with this whole new world of goal-setting. Are you working with each of them twice a day? […]
  • Fulfilling the Promise January 27, 2022
    We have one more step to take, as we integrate our goals into our future reality. But first, pat yourself on the back for getting your goals set. This is a tremendous accomplishment! And don’t worry (which really is negative goal-setting) if you haven’t yet completed the goal-defining assignment. Goal-setting is a life-long “homework assignment.” […]
  • The Road to Achievement January 26, 2022
    Today, we are going to take our new “wants” and turn them into meaningful, attainable goals. We are going to define our starting point and our end-point, in order to create the path to goal achievement. To practice, take one of your Growth Wheel sections. Perhaps one that is always important to you is Family. […]
  • Managing Your Focus January 25, 2022
    There’s a further step we need to take, with the new goals we are uncovering from our growth wheels. We want to make sure that our new goals fit in with who we know we are. We also need to check to make sure our goals fit together, in order to move us forward. When […]
  • Figuring Out the Path January 24, 2022
    The experience of “mind wandering” can be a lot of fun. With no restrictions, letting your mind wander, you are engaging in a little mental relaxation that should leave you refreshed. The good news is that this process is reusable and recyclable, any time you sense a little confusion in your life. Today, let’s do […]
  • Beginning the Process January 21, 2022
    How about we turn those old New Year’s Resolutions into an old-fashioned parlor game? To start, let’s go back a bit, and build upon the themes that have been introduced since the beginning of the month. You are going to walk through a process of vision-setting and goal-setting that will stand you in good stead […]
