You Can’t Hide From You

It was a day I’ll never forget.  During my morning “zen time” I had been reading Nathaniel Brandon”s, The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem: The Definitive Work on Self-Esteem by the Leading Pioneer in the Field – I think it was around 2003 (it was definitely before my kiddo was born, as there hasn’t been much “zen” since) […]

Are You Feeling Lucky?

We all have them. Those insane days where nothing seems to go as planned.  Your alarm doesn’t go off when should.  You miss your flight.  Your connecting flight is over-booked.  You get lost.  An hour has been added to your already too-long trek to your destination.  You’re low blood-sugar, have a headache, and can’t quite […]

If you’ve been in the professional world, corporate or otherwise, for any length of time, you’ve heard about the importance of communicating benefits.  Maybe you’ve taken a class, or read a book, or heard a “sales-expert” speak.  There’s likely a million articles out there making the rounds on social media.  Communicating Benefits is one of […]

Are You Having a Conscious Impact?

  Can you believe that it’s the end of June already?  I was telling a dear friend of mine in an email not long ago that I feel as if I’m on a run-away train lately.  So much going on!  So many balls in the air!  I’ve been so focused on  knockin’ things off the […]

How Does Your Attention Matter?

It was a beautiful thing.  She brought such complete attention, that in her presence I could see his confidence expand.  He stood taller.  He played with more passion.  It was as if she had the power to light him up from within. My friend Alise is visiting from Dallas this week.  I’ve been like an […]

Are You Bringing Your Best REAL You?

  We’re all so good.  We’ve read all the books, and the Influencer posts, and the cute-quippy-quotes that make us think and reflect.  We’ve been ever-so-subtly-trained in how to play the game and win.  We know the right things to say.  We know how to talk-the-talk and walk-the-walk.  We’ve worked so hard to do what […]

I find it so fascinating how, even though many of us speak the same language, we can interpret what is said in such a wide variety of ways – especially when the communication is in a written form, like an email or in a social media post. Yesterday my husband and I were having a […]

How Committed Are You?

We attended the most beautiful wedding this weekend at the Boston Public Library.  As I sat there in the glorious courtyard listening to the most joyous woman I’ve ever seen officiating the ceremony and watching my friends embark on their journey together, I thought about what it means “to commit”.  For real. One of the […]

How Can You Connect at Work?

Last night, as I was surrounded by the beaming faces of the group that had just gone through OnStage together, we were talking about what had transpired over the course of the day and one person said, “Well, we really know each other now, and that’s a big change!” Yes.  It’s true.  They really knew […]

Bye-Bye, Mr. Ego!

Yesterday in the car, my nine-year-old son, Jeremy, was telling me about their read-aloud unit in class (3rd grade).  They’ve each been assigned to be a character in a book and they’re reading it aloud in groups.  “To be honest, mom, I’m not crazy about the book – we’re reading Davy Crockett.  But I get […]
