Do You Have the Courage to Lead?

Posted by on Aug 25, 2015 | No Comments

I’ve lost track of the number of conversations I’ve had recently around the tough business environment we’re all facing. Companies are having to do more with less; small businesses are suffering; entrepreneurs are casting off dreams; government and education are cutting programs; non-profits have lost their funding; and the number of extraordinarily talented individuals in […]

Making Way For Possibility in 2015

Posted by on Jan 2, 2015 | No Comments

What an extraordinary site, to watch the networks flash through the New Year’s celebrations unfolding around the world.  Sydney, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Moscow, Paris, London, and of course here in New York, fireworks lit the night to mark 2015’s grand entrance.  The one night a year in which, worldwide, we’re focused on what’s possible. It’s […]

There is Power in Writing it Down

Posted by on Oct 13, 2014 | No Comments

I’m a believer in the power of writing down your goals and dreams – to putting language to vision.  And yet…I’m not always as consistent or mindful about it as I’d like to be.  I get busy.  Taking the time to write everything down seems like an extra step – when I could just dive […]

Got Juice?

People ask me all the time how I ended up doing what I do.  After all, leading programs that infuse theatre tools into leadership training isn’t something you usually find in a career guide.  It’s not a major you can sign up for in college.  It’s not an industry category.  It’s its own thing.  I’ve definitely taken the […]

What’s the Price You’re Paying?

Posted by on Aug 27, 2014 | No Comments

I’ve spent a great deal of the time working with some extraordinary emerging leaders and I can’t help but feel optimistic about the direction we’re heading in, if they are our future.  The only thing that concerns me is that many of them haven’t cultivated a belief in themselves that will take them where I know […]

Oh yes, the Universe works in mysterious ways!  It seems that I am destined to learn from myself, as today’s re-posted post is exactly what I needed to read as I work on this book project of mine…! Click here to read today’s re-posted post:  Put Yourself on the Line and Dance Okay!  Get real […]

Combating Your Gravity Monster

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 | No Comments

You know how there are things that you know you should be doing, that you know work best for you, and yet you fight yourself to actually do what you know is right?  For some people that’s fast food – we know that a McDonald’s hamburger doesn’t qualify as healthy, and yet millions of people succumb […]

Putting the Horse Before the Cart

Posted by on Mar 14, 2014 | No Comments

We’re all in such a rush.  We want to figure out how to market ourselves, our companies, our products and services as quickly as possible to get the money comin’ in the door.  What’s our “brand”?  What’s our “elevator pitch”?  What’s our “value proposition”?  Important stuff.  It makes a lot of sense – after all, […]

Chasing Your Best Self

Posted by on Mar 3, 2014 | No Comments

Ever since I first saw him in A Time to Kill, I’ve had a big-time crush on Matthew McConaughey.  Now, admittedly, back then, it really had nothing to do with his acting his ability.  I harbored love for Matthew and my husband for Charlize Theron, and both of us felt pretty confident that that our […]

Going “All-in”

There are places on this planet that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.  When you find them, they change you, for you can’t help but be fully present.  Not just in body, but in mind, spirit and heart.  You’re enraptured.  All-in. That’s how I felt when I stepped on the deck at […]
