The O in G.R.O.W.: Overcome Obstacles

May 20, 2024|

The O in G.R.O.W.: Overcome Obstacles Obstacles rear their ugly heads in many ways. When it comes to careers and the clients I coach, however, there are two that feature prominently in so many of my conversations. One is the pervasive influence of the word should. The other is good, old-fashioned fear.  If you’re trying to move forward in your career and finding yourself stuck instead, it’s worth considering whether the obstacle in your path is fear, a sense of obligation, or both.  Should I?  Yes, you should!  To be more specific, that’s the correct ...

The R in G.R.O.W.: Realize New Possibilities

May 13, 2024|

The R in G.R.O.W.: Realize New Possibilities In this second week of Mental Health Month, I invite you to consider this simple question: What more am I capable of? There is a world bursting with possibilities each of us has yet to realize. In fact, that is one of the most miraculous parts of these lives we get to live.  Who you are today is not who you were 10 or 20 years ago. Furthermore, the world hasn’t met the incredible, amazing future version of you.  Who will that superstar be?  And what will you ...

The G in G.R.O.W.: Gain Clarity

May 6, 2024|

The G in G.R.O.W.: Gain Clarity May is Mental Health Awareness Month, reminding us how important it is to pause now and then to reflect on our life, where we are, and, most importantly, how we feel about it.  If you’re anything like me, you’re busy and trying to do it all.  Consequently, our days are full as we move from one task to the next without missing a step. It’s a heavy burden when your natural gear is DRIVE. And you like driving fast. But when we’re speeding along, sometimes we lose sight of ...

Continuous Evolution for a New Season 

April 29, 2024|

Continuous Evolution for a New Season  As spring comes into its own and we shake off the last dark dregs of winter, I’ve been thinking a lot about continuous evolution.  On a deeper level than what we commonly think of as ‘personal growth,’ continuous evolution is a transformative journey. This process of self-discovery helps us serve a higher purpose and live our most authentic lives.  Continuous Evolution and Transformational Coaching  Guided by the principles of transformational coaching, evolution-seekers search within, enabling them to tap into their full potential and make meaningful contributions to the world.  ...

Embodying Transformation And Authentic Leadership 

April 22, 2024|

Embodying Transformation and Authentic Leadership  In a LinkedIn world, we are bombarded with messages about doing more, being better, and garnering awards and certificates – all forms of external validation. But for those of us who are already doing what we need to be doing – or are stretched too thin to do any more than what we are doing now, what is the counter-narrative?  Where is the message that you are enough, just as you are?  Allow me to introduce you to the concept of embodying transformation.  Embodying Transformation  There is certainly a place ...

The Shift: Moving From Dependence to Interdependence

April 15, 2024|

The Shift: Moving From Dependence to Interdependence We use the word ‘journey’ a lot around here because it applies to so many things. Life itself, from childhood through adulthood and on to, if we’re lucky, old age, is nothing if not a journey. So is the decision to transform an aspect of your life, like your career, your relationship with others, or even your relationship with yourself.  The journey I want to talk about today is a profound and transformational one in which we navigate through the various stages of dependence and independence and ultimately ...

An Expert Lens on Transformation

April 8, 2024|

An Expert Lens on Transformation As we move through our lives, it is often the challenges, transitions, and milestone moments that shape how we see ourselves. And how we view the world. That’s why understanding the stages of adult development is so important. We can transform those challenges into opportunities when we learn how to navigate trauma healing and foster personal growth.  And that is not work you need to undertake alone. A transformational coach can guide you, and many experts have already illuminated the path forward. Today, I offer you words of wisdom from ...

Heal the Past, Shape the Future Through Transformational Coaching

April 1, 2024|

Heal the Past, Shape the Future Through Transformational Coaching During our formative years, we go through a process of becoming. Who we become at that time isn’t necessarily who we are forever. But the lens through which we see the world is shaped. It’s how we perceive events, our surroundings, and others. It's also how we translate our lived experiences.  How much of that lens colors your identity today?  Have you ever wanted to go deeper into the depths of your identity and unravel the layers of ‘you’ that formed in your younger years? If ...

Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders

March 25, 2024|

Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders Spoiler alert: the future is female!  While I absolutely love celebrating Women’s History Month, I am equally excited when I envision a future where women leaders are just as common – if not more so – than men. Women are not just contributors to change or cogs in the wheels of success. No, we are the driving force behind it.  Because the future of leadership is undoubtedly female, we have some work to do today to pave the way for them. That starts with preparation and empowerment so today’s young women can ...

Sisterhood in The Workplace

March 18, 2024|

Sisterhood In The Workplace Women are by no means a monolith, yet there are fundamental experiences we share. While many of us have found success in the workplace, several barriers have historically hindered our progress. Discrepancies in the opportunities and salaries afforded to female employees in the corporate world continue to this day.  That is precisely why the importance of women supporting women cannot be overstated. A strong network and a trusted community are critical in the workplace and in other aspects of our lives. Remember that alleged village it takes to raise a child? ...
