Did you know I’ve got a new podcast out? Yup! It’s called An Unscripted Woman and it’s available right now via SoundCloud – which means you can subscribe to it through your podcast app on your smart phone. Easy peasy. I started this as an experiment back in July this summer, and the response was really positive, so I’m back for more this September, as […]

Happy New Year

We were quite a sight that day, arriving at my youngest son’s elementary school for the annual “watermelon welcome”. A few people, seeing us hobble up the front walk, asked us if we had been in a car accident. No, we assured them, we’d just had a bit of a rough summer. My husband, having crushed his arm in an accident back in early July, had […]

Help: Given & Received

Help

July was a bit of a train wreck for our family. At first I thought it was just me, and I did my thing of quietly hunkering down to power through a rough patch that seemed to appear out of nowhere. But the more I talked about it with my friends, family and clients, the more I discovered I wasn’t alone in my experience of this […]

Last Sunday I dropped my eldest son off at overnight camp for three and a half weeks. And then I proceeded to crumble. No, that’s not entirely true. The truth is that the crumbling — much to my horror — began in earnest the night before. On Saturday night, I was standing in the kitchen trying to put candles on the strawberry shortcake “cake” for […]

I can’t tell you how many days I wake up and think: I want to be as brave as my clients.  And let me tell you…from where I sit, that’s a tall order. In my work, I tend to be a brave people magnet, so I find myself surrounded by them daily — people striking out into unchartered waters with the voice of doubt hollering […]

Mustering Courage: An Interview with Lael

Posted June 16th, 2016

I’ve always found the field of coaching to be a tough thing to describe. Sure, there are words, catch phrases and pithy pitches that make coaching all seem pretty and neat. But pretty and neat have never been my style. Messy is more my style, with a colorful side of real and gritty. And certainly a generous splash of heart. It makes sense. I’m an artist at heart, […]

Undeniable Perspective

Posted May 6th, 2016

I posted this video on my SheChanges Facebook page yesterday as a nod to my mother who celebrated her 77th birthday this week. I am who I am because of her, and yet — as the video below reveals — our stories around moving into motherhood while working in the workplace are disturbingly similar, despite being separated by 37 years (my mom’s first child being born in 1965 […]
