Is It Your Time?

I have no doubt you are an amazing heart-centered leader who has already had an impact.

But maybe right now when you’re trying to access that next level of impact... you’re not feeling heard, or recognized or valued as much as you’d like.

And maybe you feel like you’re burning out a little bit in the process.

You are needed now more than ever, so we don’t want that!

That’s why I’ve created a (FREE) 30-minute video for you (or your team) on “How to Manage Overwhelm.”

(Just scroll below to start viewing some of my best training.)

It is very condensed and packed with tools to understand causes, consequences and cures to manage this very real problem that many are experiencing on the heals of a remarkably challenging year. As Q1-’21 comes to an end, I wanted to make sure you and/or your teams can have this resource, so you can accelerate into the remainder of the year rather than be in constant react mode mid-year.

Want More Recognition?

Want More Recognition?

Has anyone ever given you a compliment that you’ve downplayed or shrugged off as being insignificant or ‘not a big deal’? Maybe you’ve achieved a new level of success or had a big win and then just moved on to the next thing without taking in the magnitude of what YOU did. 

Permission for a healthy dose of tough love…

If you want more recognition from others, it’s important to start recognizing yourself more. This serves two purposes. First, progress boosts confidence, momentum and motivation. In order to capitalize on this, it’s important to pause and party! Be sure to celebrate the process and not just the ‘W’s’. For example, you made 3 phone calls to key stakeholders or if you practiced relentlessly for an upcoming presentation. Of course, if you got that raise, promotion or kudos, schedule in a way to celebrate that as well! Don’t forget to plan that ‘pause and party’!
