Forward

Some of us, as leaders, go through a series of purpose-expressions, a series of careers, as we grow, learn and become more and more of who we are meant  to be.  Others find one avenue immediately after high school or college and stay with that one expression of their vision throughout much of their life. Whichever path you follow is yours, not right or wrong, just yours..

The one core truth we learn, however, is that whatever path we choose, there will be a continuous series of opportunities for growth or stagnation. For living our truth or being in self-betrayal. Choosing leadership, consciously or otherwise, requires that we be ready to grow in order to deal with all the challenges, opportunities, and expansions that happen as our vision takes on a life of its own. That choosing can support compassion, understanding, and a greater leadership skill as those around us go through their process as well.

As leaders, we are challenged at times to decide if we are ready or even want to grow to that next level, to lead at that level, to become even more of who we are.

If you are human, you will at times want to stop, to breath, to reconsider your choices. That is never a failing, or a weakness, rather it is an amazing gift you give yourself. When you have grown significantly, or when it is time to grow significantly,  stopping to catch up with yourself, to integrate all that is happening, is a smart and solid way of strengthening your foundation, your connection to your Spirit,  to your purpose, and to you.

Values And The Ideal Life

By Articles, Blog, Success, Transition

I’ve started doing daily videos, Monday through Friday, which are posted on my YouTube channel, LinkedIn, and my professional Facebook page. Recently, I did one on “What Does Success Mean to You”? I asked that question because success means something different to every one of us. Even if two people say “a happy marriage,” does a happy marriage look identical…

Living To 100+

By Articles, Blog, Health, Transition

A client told me recently of a 4-part Netflix series – Live to 100. Since that is my intent most days, I watched it. The documentary host traveled to Japan, Italy, Greece, and more locations interviewing folks where living 100+ years is the norm. The gems of wisdom shared in the learning are amazing. For me, it started with Don’t…

Being Fully Alive And Healthy

I was blessed to speak with two potential clients today who have a whole world of experience to share. For each one, the stress of needing to make major life choices, and resisting, even for theoretically justifiable reasons, caused serious health issues. One wonderful man hated his career from the beginning yet felt obligated to support his family and he…

The Gift Of One Thing At A Time

By Articles, Blog, Coaching, Leadership

I’ve started doing one-hour conversations for women who want Elevated Leadership. Normally it is the second Tuesday of every month at 4:00 but in August it will be on Thursday the 10th because a family member is receiving her white medical coat as she prepares to begin her medical career.

Moving Beyond A Myth

By Articles, Blog, Coaching, Mindset, Transition

“The myth of normal is a cloak that disguises the immense diversity and complexity of the human experience, obscuring the truth that we are all vulnerable and flawed, yet capable of extraordinary resilience and growth.”                                                  …
