A Resiliency Killer: Loneliness

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, April 29, 2019

According to a CIGNA Survey conducted in 2018, 46% of Americans feel lonely sometimes or always. Only around half of Americans (53 percent) have meaningful, in-person social interactions, such as having an extended conversation with a friend or spending quality time with family, on a daily basis. Gen Z's are among the most lonely. Although the 18-23-year-olds think they are super-connected, they are not. They're attached to the wireless "umbilical cords" connected to smart phones which—in the scheme of things—are not very smart. Communication that is purely digital can never replace the sound of a voice or the touch of a hand. Or—for that matter—the tone of a voice. Chronic use of social media increases loneliness.

WHAT BIFF Really Means: Bigger, Further, Faster!

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, April 08, 2019

Here is what it is not:  Bigger is not the lumbering, bloated, behemoth collection of firms we see around us in the world of mergers without meaning. It is not about a company that is so huge it practically suffocates with committees and unconnected strategies, with too many people who never see each other, don’t know each other, and feel adrift at the core.

Land Rover or a Dog Rover?

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, April 01, 2019

At the gym, I saw a television ad for the Land Rover. The driver—a very handsome man—stops the car, gives his dog the whiff of a dropped scarf and the chase begins!

The driver follows this gorgeous black dog running through narrow alleys, down cobblestone streets, until the animal stops at the steps of what looks like a huge mansion.

Out hops the man. He bounds up the steps as the woman turns. She smiles, accepts the scarf and he’s back in the driver seat.

Trying to sell me a Land Rover?I think not. I’d buy the dog!!!!
