Seeing Possibility

Posted by on May 19, 2010 | 6 Comments

Think for a moment about the people who have made the biggest difference in your life. Who pointed you in a new direction? Who gave you that unique opportunity? Who saw something in you, that perhaps you hadn’t even seen in yourself? There are people we meet who seem to magically change the trajectory of […]

What Others are Saying…The Heart of Engagement

Mike Cook, author of Thrive – Standing on Your Own Two Feet in a Borderless World attended OnStage Leadership this past week in Seattle.  I felt pretty spoiled having Mike as a participant, as it was I, three and a half years ago, who first reached out to him after reading his book.   I […]

Risking Who-You-Really-Are

Posted by on Apr 20, 2010 | 3 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 that, 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). Jessica showed up in one of […]

An Amazing Celebration!

We just celebrated our one year anniversary of OnStage Leadership with a huge Graduate reunion celebration. It was magical!  There are pinch-me times in life that are so incredible that I can hardly believe they’re real.  Last night was one of those times.  I am blown away by the extraordinary people I’ve had the privilege […]

The “Big Stuff” Really Happens!

Posted by on Apr 2, 2010 | No Comments

In my last newsletter, I talked about the power of including others in your vision. Only days later, this was completely reinforced for me. As many of you know, I sing with a philanthropy-based choir called “Resounding Harmony”. This May we’re performing “Sing for the Cure” at the Meyerson in Dallas, and then again in […]

Welcoming Joy – Letting Big Stuff Happen

Posted by on Mar 29, 2010 | 7 Comments

I’ve always been one of those people who likes to do things myself. As the parent of a five year old, I find that kids entering Kindergarten like the same thing. “I can do it myself, Mommy!” I often hear from my exasperated son, when I’m trying to help him out. It’s something that is […]

An “Intentional” New Year

Posted by on Mar 29, 2010 | No Comments

The media loves this time of year. From CNN, to People Magazine, we’re inundated with images of the year’s events – the bad stuff of course – because (they say), good stuff doesn’t make for compelling news. Today, I invite you to refocus your lens a bit, away from Madoff and Tiger, and zoom-in closer […]

What can you control?

Posted by on Jan 15, 2010 | One Comment

Have you ever noticed that, no matter how hard you work at it, no matter how focused and goal oriented you are, no matter how educated, wealthy, popular, or beautiful you may (or may not) be, “stuff” happens? And just when you mistakenly think that you’ve got it all under control, you’re reminded that control […]

An “Intentional” New Year

Posted by on Dec 15, 2009 | No Comments

The media loves this time of year. From CNN, to People Magazine, we’re inundated with images of the year’s events – the bad stuff of course – because (they say), good stuff doesn’t make for compelling news.

Today, I invite you to refocus your lens a bit, away from Madoff and Tiger, and zoom-in closer to home. Consider what your year in pictures would reveal. As you flip through your mental calendar of 2009, what do you see? Who shared your days? How did you spend your time? What brought you joy? What images come to mind?
