I love to conduct workshops. To facilitate someone else’s learning by sharing my experiences, story, and quirkiness is truly one of the most fulfilling things I do. Before I every step into a workshop, I’ve usually done at least 3 hours of work for each hour of training. Everything doesn’t always go according to plan, […]
Raise your hand if this has happened to you. You and your co-workers have a meeting to discuss a new project that’s part of your strategic plan. The meeting runs over 15 minutes and you each leave the meeting with action items. As each persons begins their tasks, they have questions. A series of emails are exchanged […]
Receiving feedback usually gets me a little nervous. I find myself uneasy, embarrassed, and sometimes even feeling ashamed of my work. I’m not alone. I’ve heard from many others that feedback often times elicits the third F-word here…you know what I’m talking about. In writing this post, I realize that my association with feedback is mostly […]
Have you ever thought about your process for intentionally disconnecting from work? I remember when I used to commute thirty minutes each way. My thoughts on the drive to work were about work.

Helping until it hurts isn’t helping. It’s martyrdom.

Let me recap my past month for you: I had bronchitis. In July. I fell off my bike and broke my arm. I walked around for a week with a broken arm before going to the doctor. (I have a couple of minor (hairline?) fractures. It was painful but nothing crazy like a bone […]
We do-gooders are great at doing good, which usually also means being constantly active. What we’re not so great at is renewing our spirit and taking breaks to avoid compassion fatigue — that unique form of tension and stress that comes from helping those in distress. Professional development, in particular leadership development, can help you address the […]
How to get what you want by creating a personal vision.
Setting a vision can often seem either impractical or overwhelming. During this session, we’ll focus on how a vision is merely a way to articulate what you want out of life for any length of time (in the next 5 weeks, 5 months, or 5 years; the choice is yours). By the end of our time together, you’ll create an inspiring personal vision with an awesome action plan plus receive tools to understand the steps to actually work your plan and filter decisions through your vision, instead of focusing on other people’s expectations and emotions.
