When to Say “When”

Posted by on Sep 14, 2015 | 2 Comments

There are days that I would love to have a clone.  Today is one of those days.  As evening approaches and I realized that I had not yet written a post, the sinking awareness that I should accept the fact that today’s blog may not be “all that” hit me.  And then I thought…I bet many […]

Ask Yourself, “What If…?”

Posted by on Sep 8, 2015 | No Comments

I’m always amazed at how transferable my theatre degree has turned out to be in the world of work. I never imagined that it would serve me as as it has and give me tools that I use daily in my personal and business practices. One acting technique that has become the foundation for everything […]

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Posted by on Aug 31, 2015 | No Comments

We’ve all had them. Those insane days where nothing seems to go as planned.  Your alarm doesn’t go off when it’s supposed to.  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 […]

Are You Off the Radar?

Posted by on Aug 10, 2015 | No Comments

I’m lucky. I know it. My work allows me to get to know some extraordinary people. What always seems to surprise me is, more often than not, they don’t recognize how extraordinary they really are. Take Jessica for instance (all names have been changed to protect the extraordinary). I will always remember Jessica.  She showed […]

Let’s Draft!

Posted by on Jul 20, 2015 | 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 […]

Does Stuff Happen to You?

Posted by on Jul 6, 2015 | 2 Comments

Yesterday I received an email from a potential business colleague profusely apologizing for having to reschedule our call.  Her child was sick, her normal sitter out of town, and she was home beating herself up for not being available. Last week there was a time-zone snafu with another call I had scheduled and the guy […]

How Are You Fencing Yourself In?

Posted by on Jun 29, 2015 | No Comments

I don’t know about you, but I find that some of my favorite quotes come from movies that are made for the under-13-crowd.  Since I’ve a grade-schooler at home, it’s nice to have an excuse to plop down with a bucket of popcorn and watch something that actually has a positive message in it.  It’s […]

Who’s Your Anti-Busy-Buddy?

Posted by on Apr 6, 2015 | No Comments

“I wish I could” she said,  “I never have time for lunch.  It’s crazy-busy here.  Always.” “Oh I hear ya!  This is the first time I’ve come up for air in weeks!” I replied, feeling like I had to somehow justify the unfilled gap in my day. As a culture we wear our overwhelm like […]

You’re Not a Fix-it Project

Posted by on Mar 30, 2015 | 4 Comments

It’s so interesting to me how our perceptions of ourselves are often so far out of synch with how the world perceives us to be.  I know you can probably think of a few folks running about with an inflated opinion of themselves, but in my experience, the vast majority of us are so focused […]

How Confident Are You?

Posted by on Mar 16, 2015 | 3 Comments

Awhile back, this Douglas MacArthur quote started making the rounds on Facebook and it triggered some reflection. “A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others.  He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one through […]
