The Solution is in the Problem

A great coaching conversation doesn’t tell you anything brilliant, it helps you uncover your own brilliance. As a business and leadership confidence coach, the first thing I actually do with a client is have them prove they have a challenge or problem: “How do you know that there is a problem?” Seriously. This conversation brings [...]

The Explosive Child… a book with some hope?

All children are good if they can be. That is the premise of this book by Ross W. Greene. That when children explode - or implode - it is due to frustration around a skill they don't have...yet. Challenging kids are lacking the skills of flexibility, adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving. The list of [...]

Get into Flow State Deliberately

(Your free worksheet and hypnosis mp3 are at the bottom of this post.) Where does flow come from? And, is it possible to choose to get into flow? In case you have not heard of flow, let's start there. Flow is a state of being in which you are so present and absorbed in the [...]

Human? You have an UN.

At BNI today we talked about Happiness. Confidence. Joy. These are our natural states of being. When we are not living our life there consistently, this is a symptom. A symptom of a solvable problem. And a pretty much universal problem - because although everyone needs a coach starting in elementary school, this stuff just [...]

Commit to Energy – Energy from Commitment. Let’s MOVE!

The year is far from over! What will you do with the last quarter? Why do I recommend a 90-Day Sprint, and to whom? A time-limited, focused drive toward a goal will teach you things about your own abilities that you deserve to learn. That you are strong, capable, powerful, effective. When you test yourself [...]

Happy Back-to-School New Year! Ready? #90DaySprint #Goals

Take a Hike #WednesdayWorksheet

During the weekend, I had a peaceful, solitary retreat to Walter's Falls. I stayed at an Inn overlooking the small waterfall and spent my days reading, studying, writing and mostly - hiking along the Bruce Trail!

I am Just Not “Feeling It” #MondayMeditation

Where does motivation come from? Some days, I will admit, it seems more elusive than others. Like there is a reluctance to even get started. "I don't feel like recording a meditation right now." Then the excuses: "I would be so much more valuable if I was in the mood for it, right?" But [...]
