Mindfulness and Being: Unlocking Human Potential

By Dr. Dean Anderson December 12, 2017

People often share with me their “aha moment” of pleasant surprise when they first realize what the name of our company, Being First, means.

Being First is a double entendre: If you want to be first – win, perform your best, increase market share, or any other objective you may have – then put your “Being” first.

The Post-Visioning, Get Real Conversation

By Dr. Dean Anderson September 26, 2017

If you ask any CEO or senior executive of an organization if they have a company vision, they will say yes. If you ask most employees if their company has a vision, they will also say yes. In this day and age, everyone has a vision, but most are little more than posters on a wall.   

When you go a level deeper and ask, Is your organization actively pursuing your vision? Is it alive in people’s minds daily as they make decisions? Is it the priority-setting benchmark for resource allocation?”, both leaders and those in the workforce hesitate, often responding, “No”.
