Have you ever been startled awake by your alarm only to tap the snooze button again and again? When you finally pull yourself from restless, snooze induced sleep, you ask why you are returning to a ho-hum job that is unfulfilling? This is where I found myself in 2009 as a director at a Fortune 500 sized organization. I was tired, frustrated and frankly burned out. I knew it was time to make a change, but what did I want to be when I grew up? So the search began... What parts of my job did I love, what parts could I tolerate, what got me excited and made me want to go to work? This search took me on a journey of self-awakening to find my purpose in life and make a complete career change. Since then, I have been helping individuals, teams, and even organizations identify and realize their dreams and visions. Let me help you too!

In my previous post, I wrote about Jack Gibbs theory that good teams are built on a foundation of trust. The first principle of building trust is the ability to answer the question, “Who am I?” To understand why this is important, let’s look at the concerns of groups and individuals as they pertain to[…]
I spend my days helping leaders create remarkable teams. I coach these leaders, design customized workshops, and perform a magnitude of team building activities with them. I often reflect that we put so much work into building leaders and teams, when in theory, good teams are developed through trust. In the 1960s, Jack Gibbs wrote[…]
