The Simulator – the Benefits of Real-Time Roleplay

Posted by Chris Comeaux on Nov 4, 2020 10:16:54 AM

A few weeks ago, we conducted our fall TCN Leadership Immersion Course. We were thrilled to have over 80 leaders from six states participating, and their engagement level was off the charts. Due to COVID, as with most trainings and meetings, we pivoted to Zoom for the conference, which made the engagement level even more impressive given the virtual nature, in addition to the fact that the training took place over three consecutive days.

Do you remember back a long, long time ago when a phone call was pretty much how you got things done?

How to Manage Work / Life Blend During COVID (and probably afterwards)

Posted by Chris Comeaux on Aug 31, 2020 8:08:56 AM

Several years ago, I wrote a blog on the rhythms of life. It was the collective wisdom I have harvested over the years from mentors, books, and daily living about how to have a better “work - life balance”.

The Knowing Mode vs. The Learning Mode

You may have seen our tribute to Dr. Lee Thayer several weeks back. We were honored to give an ode to him and his work as he passed on from this world. For many of us in TCN, Dr. Thayer had a great impact on our lives and our learning and development as leaders.

You Can’t Get the Fruits Without the Roots

NoFruitsWithoutRoots

While shopping at Lowe’s this weekend I noticed something I had looked over many times before. I was shopping for blueberry and raspberry bushes for our farm. Have you ever noticed the tags on the bushes depicting the fruit growing on the tree? This is brilliant marketing.

We Can Do All Things

Posted by Chris Comeaux on Jun 3, 2020 5:00:00 PM

I write this post somewhat reluctantly, but I feel compelled to do so because it is such a challenging time for our country. I am not reluctant out of lack of heartbreak for what happened in Minneapolis. The family of George Floyd watched their loved one die at the hands of someone who is supposed to be in a position of trust. It is unacceptable, and wrong on so many levels. My reluctance in writing this post is not because I do not want to speak to the wrong, but rather that I don’t want to jump on a bandwagon and simply repeat what is in the echo chamber. Many authentically want change but some are joining the echo chamber because of peer pressure, I don’t want to be one of the later just offering up platitudes.

This Is What We’ve Been Training For

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo. "So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

This is Serious – Take it Seriously and Prepare

What in the world is going on?  I am sure you have said those words these past two weeks, I know I have.  Two weeks ago, my family and I were on Spring Break in Florida when all this hit.  We cut our trip short and came back early.

Leadership During Times of Crisis

Posted by Chris Comeaux on Mar 19, 2020 10:01:01 AM

Today, in the midst of the chaos and unpredictability we’re all experiencing, a friend shared an idea with me that impacted me deeply. He said that now is a great time to challenge our families, especially our children, to begin journaling. Why, you ask? Because 25 years from now we will look back on these times and realize that history was being written and defined during the day-to-day lives we led and the choices we made during this time. Much like other historical times have shown us, we’ll be marked and changed by these events.
