Do You Have A Mindset For Change?

I love the challenge of personal growth.  I just like to get better.  When I’ve got a challenge ahead of me, I pull out all the resources, self-care, support system, reference materials…you name it…and I tackle the problem ahead of me.  Maybe that’s why I love being a coach and helping my clients solve their […]

What’s the Right Balance for You?

What’s the right balance for you?  I don’t mean work/life balance. I see people asking a different and bigger question these days. They’re asking “What role does my job play in the balancing act of life?”  People are leaving jobs like we’ve never seen before. They’re tired. Overworked. Undervalued. Discouraged.

Take a Moment to Breathe

When I begin a session with a coaching client I often start by asking the client to “breathe deeply and slowly three times.” One day, I forgot to use the word “slowly”.

8 Signs You’re Too Stressed

I was vacationing on a houseboat in Arkansas with about ten family members, all of whom I love and with whom I enjoy spending time.  One day, however, there were one too many complaints, one too many requests and a few too many people around me.  So I dove off the back of the houseboat […]

Is Your Life Purposeful AND Fulfilling?

I believe we all want to live a life that has meaning and that we are most satisfied when we are living for something greater than ourselves.  This is the purposeful life.  Caring for family, volunteering, creating opportunities and a better life for others are all examples commonly thought of as purposeful. Is purposeful enough? […]

How Do You Know When You’re Leading?

How do you know you’re a leader?  The common quip is, “Look behind you and see if anyone is following.”  True, but there’s more. We become leaders when our perspective shifts from the task at hand to the greater goal.  I recall a situation in my career when I realized that I was no longer […]
