If you’re feeling overwhelmed, not sleeping well, dropping off your routine or your productivity is tanking... the good news is that you’re normal!
The not-so-good news is that you’re allowing your light to be dimmed. (Woo woo translation: your purpose-driven goodness that you are able to put into our family, your company, and into the world is slowing down, and in some cases stopping altogether.)
Maybe you’re feeling stuck?
Not sure about a move to a new role, an internal shift where you’ll challenge your leadership to ‘get on the bus’ with a major initiative, or possibly going after a new board seat?
Purpose-driven clarity is like rocket fuel. It jolts you into action, honoring fear and doubt while not letting them get in the way of your progress.
To help you gain even greater purpose-driven clarity, I’d like to share something crazy I did this month,...
I hope your year is off to a healthy, productive, and impactful start!
What do you love about what you do?
For me, I love being the guide so you, your team, or your colleagues can be the hero. While very aware of the importance of data, it’s not so exciting to me.
There was, however, some notable data that came out of 2021 that (I feel) is important for you to know, so we can learn and improve from it.
First, the "not so good news" uncovered from a pre-coaching assessment that was filled by the 10 female heart-centered leaders I was so honored to have worked with 1:1 in 2021 as well as the facilitations done for their managers and from the virtual speaking events that reached thousands.
I’d like to...
Do you ever get distracted or veer from what’s most important? Maybe you’re too overwhelmed to think about it, or you’re not even clear on what it is anymore! If so, you’re definitely not alone. Maybe it’s time to course-correct and get more strategic about the year you want to have and the impact you’re going to create in 2022…
This has certainly been a year of reflection, and it’s the perfect time to get clear on what matters most to you, how you’d like to achieve it, and how you’d like to feel in the process.
Maybe you’re so busy that you don’t have time to make a shift, or you are not sure where to start. As we wind up the year, here are a couple of things that might help create the impact you want and deserve on your terms.
Consider that goals are not just about your career, such as meeting/exceeding projections, having more influence with leadership,...
If you feel like you’re spinning, not in control of your days, your voice is not being heard, or you’re just not making the progress you want and deserve, we need to chat.
Your voice, contribution and leadership matter, a lot. In order for you to get the projects, promotions, recognition and respect you want and deserve, AND in a sustainable way, we’ll need to take a pause. Here is step #1 which are a few questions to ponder for a mid-year course correction, so you can finish the year strong, and happy.
Warning! These may not be easy.
Step #1: Gain Clarity
You are a gift.
A leader whose authentic, confident and compassionate voice needs to be heard, valued and...
It’s Spring (finally!), and it’s possible that it’s time for a new beginning, a shift. Maybe it’s a shift in your morning routine, how much you commit to speaking up, the intent that you go after a raise, promotion or the recognition that you’re yearning for. Maybe it’s a big shift in terms of how you lead, where you lead or in what capacity.
Is it time to DE-CIDE?
Phonetically speaking, "de" means "of" and "cide" means, well "death." When you DE-CIDE, it’s the death of any other option.
Oftentimes gaining pure clarity is the hardest part.
Simply put, we have a lot of baggage, past experiences, past influences and stories we tell ourselves which gets in the way of our next best move.
The good news is that there is a process to get clear, so we can shift, take action and get back on track to the best version of us as well as feel the joy that comes along with it.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, not sleeping well, dropping off your routine or your productivity is tanking... the good news is that you’re normal.
The not so good news is that you’re allowing your light to be dimmed. (Woo woo translation: your purpose-driven goodness that you are able to put into our family, your company and into the world is slowing down, and in some cases stopping all together.)
No bueno for you, your job security or those whom you influence.
You matter. A lot. Let’s make sure you understand how to manage your internal world, so you can keep contributing purposefully towards your dreams and feel joy along the way.
Absolutely thrilled to share my interview with fellow certified high performance coach Kerry Smith of The Awakening Trainings.
Kerry and her husband Colin believe everyone deserves to be happy and it is everyone's birthright to live a life that cultivates inner happiness, one that comes from within and could never be fulfilled with outward desires. It is only filled with inward clarity, stillness and passion for growth, ignited by one’s own inner wisdom. They have Instilled the importance of inner peace and wisdom in the reality of their daily lives and has devoted a deep meditation practice twice a day as part of their very rigorous spiritual routine for the last 26 years. In 2018, Kerry and Colin were hand-picked to carry on the torch of transformation that it brings and they took it with the deep honor, reverence and dedication to help others find their personal spark and they have incorporated their expertise in the different healing...
If you’re feeling a little (or a lot:) overwhelmed or out of control, I hear you! You are most definitely not alone. That gets compounded when we are absorbing and managing how other family members and team members are doing.
In my household, I have one son who is in Nevada with his girlfriend and her family (I’m in California), and my younger son is on the tennis team and a senior at UC Berkeley. The tennis season was cancelled, all of his friends went home and there will be no formal graduation ceremony (except at home!). My daughter (age 20), is supposed to be in Honolulu right now with her best friend for Spring Break. As you can imagine, she’s not too thrilled to be at home with me! Despite it all, everyone seems to be taking everything in stride (most of the time:).
Let’s take a moment for YOU and check in to see how you’re doing!
How you feel and how you are managing your thoughts and...

Do you ever get distracted and veer from what’s most important?
Maybe you’re so busy that you don’t have time to focus on what really matters to have massive impact this year?
We all do, but there are a couple things that sets the best apart from the rest.
It's time to "course correct"... so you can fully lean into this year.
World-class performers have laser-like focus when it comes to their long-term vision and their short-term progress. Thankfully, there are tools we can all learn, so we can have remarkable clarity and focus too and achieve what may have (at first) seemed not possible.
Here are two tips to get started:

Four years ago I got asked by a dear friend to sit on a panel for a Google Ventures sponsored event which was hosted by Autodesk. The topic was "Mental Toughness for Women in Tech."
I thanked my friend, and politely declined.
At the time and for the past 25 years, my clients were world-class athletes typically ages 16-22... not the best, brightest and most successful women in technology residing in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and beyond.
Full transparency, I was scared.
Why would they listen to me? I essentially helped the top 1% teens and young adults to be their best, consistently and under highly important or high stakes situations.
Thankfully my friend at Autodesk was persistent, and fortunately I decided that my voice deserved to be heard. I prepared extensively (and then even prepared a lot more), showed up, delivered, and my business was forever changed... especially after I heard this from one of the...
Feeling a bit out of control or worried? (You’re not alone:).
Learning how to master your mindset can help you to feel more grounded and less worried. You can learn to go from consuming and reacting to learning, doing and moving forward.
Let’s take a few minutes to see how you and/or your team or your family members are doing! This is not a scientific assessment, just a general starting guideline to shine some light on where it may be helpful to improve, so you can be more calm, productive and optimistic.
