Speaking Topics

Leading in the Middle

For those in leadership positions challenges and disruptions can lead to exhaustion, reactive responses, cultivated apathy and disconnection. As they pour out, they burn out. There are strategies and hope that can transform our leadership and those we are called to lead.

Resilience in the Middle of Challenge

The challenges in the world around us seem to be mounting as our capacity can feel depleted. Add to that the disruptions we face in our organizations, on our teams at work, our relationships both professional and personal and possibly our own wellbeing lacking stability and the exhaustion can unanchor us as we seek for some sense of grounding that offers resilience to face the challenges. There's hope.

reAligned Living

An exploration of stories that emerge the barriers to balance and boundaries then offers practical strategies and pathways that move us towards aligning our calendars to what we value.

Margins Matter. the strategy of creating & maintaining boundaries

Explore the practice of creating space to design a life with intention and elevate how we interact with others, ourselves and our calendars. Leveraging the strategy of margins creates a fierce focus that invites us to live and work with less depletion and greater determination!
