Not long ago I led OnStage Leadership for a very special group of creatives.  Extraordinarily talented and insightful, the group reminded me about how powerful it is to name the unique gifts that we bring.  Over the course of the day they dug deep – excavating what it is that drives them internally.  What, when they […]

What Are Your Super-Powers?

One of the things I love most about my work is that I get a chance to help people see and appreciate their natural talents.   When we’re too close to something, sometimes it’s hard to see (and that’s getting less metaphorical and more literal for me the older I get).  We don’t see the things […]

One of the things that leaves me feeling grateful about about the work I get to do is that I learn as much from my participants as they do from me.  Dr. Carol Dweck, in her book  Mindset:  The New Psychology of Success, beautifully reminds us how critical cultivating a love of learning is to our success […]

I’ve spent more time in my head, since I’ve moved to NY and I don’t think I’m alone in that.  I remember when I first moved here I was like an open vessel, absorbing input with all my senses.  It was so exciting!  And so exhausting.  I would come home from the city and be […]

My mind keeps wandering back, thinking of my friend Jeff.   Jeff is […]

One of the things that I love so much about running open enrollment sessions is the extraordinary cross-learning that takes place.  When you bring a small group of people together, from a variety of backgrounds, industries, and experience-levels, everyone looks at the world through a different filter, and they all add something unique to the […]
