A Practice Of Gratitude Versus A Heart of Gratitude

December 11, 2019Shift Your Paradigm

Many years ago, I heard Oprah say that her gratitude practice had been her most significant source of transformation.

Stop Berating Your Weaknesses

December 4, 2019Embody Your Potential

Strange advice? Not really. We know that focusing on weaknesses is a fast path to mediocrity and stress, and yet 95% of all performance management systems still do exactly that.

Your Wild Ride Is A Safari

November 27, 2019Pivot with Courage, Walk Your Vision

After cursing the overused word “journey” w/ a friend, I discovered the Swahili word for Journey is SAFARI. This provokes thought, yes? Safari is a powerful descriptor for life.

What I Learned This Weekend

October 8, 2019Embody Your Potential, Walk Your Vision

This weekend, dear friends and I immersed ourselves in the richness of Portland Oregon. These friends and I know one another because we are all part of an organization with the mission of supporting Female Executives globally.

I Hope No One Noticed….

October 1, 2019Prioritize Your Wellbeing
