What Impact Does Your Presence Have? (Part 2)

Posted by on Jul 31, 2014 | No Comments

Yesterday I wrote about two very different leaders (you can catch up on that blog post here).  The first leader had the uncanny ability to disengage a room full of people managers in an instant.  The second leader invested about 30 minutes of his time to ignite a passion for growth, build trust, and plant […]

Awhile back I was leading sessions for small company that had recently been acquired by a large multinational based in France.  There were culture issues, communication issues, and because of the vast amount of change they were experiencing, fear and mistrust were rampant.  Overnight this small band of technical leaders that had proudly grown their […]

Do You FEEL Successful?

I’ve had the privilege to work with a lot of senior executives who have found themselves in transition.  Amazing men and women who have been in workforce 20 – 30 years, and for a multitude of reasons have found themselves, often for the first time in their careers, looking for “what’s next”. Most have accomplished […]

What Legacy Will You Leave?

On October 22nd of last year, I received a devastating phone call.  My dear friend was very ill.  He had pancreatic cancer and was committed to fight like crazy.  It seemed unreal.  Impossible really.  He was the most health-conscious guy I knew.  We’d go to dinner and he’d talk of doing a “cheat” if he […]

What Is Your Hidden Power?

Last summer, my little family of three hiked to the top of Mt. Battie, just outside Camden, Maine (Gorgeous!  If you ever get a chance, you really must go!) and I remember thinking what a study in motivation it was.   To propel ourselves, our then-eight year old in tow, up the 780 ft of elevation, required […]

What Were You Born to Master?

Last summer we took a trip to Maine and my then-eight year old declared that we are not allowed to kill lobsters.  I’m normally not the killing type, but since it was my first trip to Maine and I had harbored visions of eating lobster every day for a week, I had to find a solution to his sudden crustacean […]

What Do You Do To Be A Better You?

In this world where we’re going a million miles an hour and we’re plugged in 24/7, how many of you find it difficult to really slow down and connect?  Connect to the people you care about most?  Connect to yourself and find a way to hear your own voice in the cacophony that is life?  I would […]

Are You In? Let’s Draft!

Posted by on Jul 17, 2014 | No Comments

I love the concept of “drafting”.  My husband Tim has done multiple long-distance bike rides and ever since I learned about drafting I’ve been fascinated by it.  To draft, there has to be someone leading – you cannot draft alone.  The riders following the leader of the pack use the leader’s energy to cut the […]

What’s Your Thing?

I talk too loud.  It’s been that thing I do that I wish I didn’t do for as long as I can remember.  From the time I started putting words together my mother would tell me, “Kimberly, modulate your voice.”  I think I am probably the only person on the planet who knew what the […]

Ummm…What Did You Say?

Oh my gosh.  Night-before-last I did the parent-thing that I swore I’d never do.  My kiddo was talking a million miles an hour and I was….well yes, I was on Facebook…and according to witness testimony, I was nodding and smiling and responding to what he was telling me.  Ten minutes later my kiddo came back […]
