Turn Your To-Do List into a To-BE List

As you may have noticed, I have been investing a lot of my attention in how I BE and how that way of helping me create the world in which I exist. Everything starts with how one shows up at any given moment. Am I approaching this interaction from a place of fear? How have … Continued

Moving the Goalpost: Remember to Celebrate

“Transformation happens in the speaking of the transformation.” This was one of many takeaways from a coaching session last week. It’s been my experience that entrepreneurs and business leaders have a tendency to move the goalpost. Using a football metaphor, we get to the 5-yard line and then up the measure of success. “I am … Continued

Combatting Impostor Syndrome: You Are Enough

I had the pleasure to help coach a friend this morning who is contemplating a career change. Like many of us, she expressed the concern that she might not be ready… that there is someplace she needs to “get to” before taking this next step in her career. (But here’s the truth: she IS ready. … Continued

The Power of Being Present

I love #movingmeetings. Though our get-together wasn’t an official “meeting” (and was long overdue), I’ll count the fun hike in the clouds with Jeff Kinsey last night as a moving meeting. See, Jeff is not only a good friend but a fantastic, intuitive #coach who helps people work through some of their toughest challenges to … Continued

Everything Exists as a Resource for Creation

Everything exists as a resource for creation. Last week was rough. We had some shakeups on the team, one of our great Account Managers caught COVID and needed to take some time off… things, overall, were not going smoothly. I admit I did not handle this particularly well. My emotions ranged from self-flagellation and internalization … Continued

How to BE vs. How to DO

Most fellas love tools. We collect and organize them and more often than not fail to use them correctly (or sometimes ever). Look in most garages or sheds and you’ll find a whole host of tools purchased at one time after much consternation and research only to be left to rust and gather dust. (The … Continued

Your Superpower Can Also Be Your Kryptonite

Big moves can be scary. I have definitely experienced the fear associated with “trying to get it right” all the time which produces a full stop in the decision-making process (paralysis), overplanning (manufactured paralysis), or delays that result in missed opportunities (effective paralysis). I worked with a client last year who was stuck. She came … Continued

Creating Through Commitment

I’ve always been a planner. It’s one of my superpowers and has served me well thus far in my life. However, sometimes our superpowers can get in the way. My planning power often keeps me from taking big steps. Needing to know “how” I am going to get things done can get in the way … Continued

Feeling Stuck? Change Your Perspective

Saturday, I spent over 9 hours riding bikes in the woods with friends. It’s an annual tradition in which I feel quite fortunate to participate. It’s usually a bit of “type 2 fun”, with highs and lows throughout the day. But it’s always a great way to spend time with friends, to push our collective … Continued

Culture as a Differentiator While Hiring

I was on a call with a client today during which the subject of hiring was discussed. She is looking to fill an entry-level position and is seeing that not only has the salary range for this type of position gone up dramatically, but the number of similar positions available in her area has also … Continued
