Real talk, solid truth and practical strategies
My life as a consultant, coach and counselor has afforded me the opportunity to work with some amazing people and in circumstances I might never have imagined finding myself. There has been something wonderful in each and every opportunity.
What I have learned though, is that I am not right for every situation or team.
I became a wise-advisor through trials and triumphs, and those experiences gave me both the passion and the power to help people to evolve dramatically within their lifetimes. They become the best versions of themselves in their real world circumstances.
I use my whole self…all of my diverse experience, my truest heart, and my love for critical thinking and strategic perspectives.
Sometimes that means speaking a truth that people do not want to hear.
In business, as in life, we sometimes make choices from unconscious expectations that lead to on-going struggles. By listening deeply, I have been able to bring those expectations, and their results, to light. On a handful of occasions, diplomatically ‘pulling back the curtain’ from hidden issues has created what I like to call ‘productive tension.’
The best part of serving authentically is that I both enjoy, and model for others, the truth that there is a vast difference between discomfort and disaster. Once you know that, by fully integrating ALL of our experiences, you get the most out of life.
