Do you have a fear of success?

This came up in a session this week with one of my coaching clients, so I wanted to ask you, my readers, if you have a battle with this as well. Here's the deal, as a coach, I sometimes see things before my clients do because I have been exposed to so many different transformations, and also I am in tuned with my own areas for improvement, that I can relate. I have totally suffered from a fear...

I love getting rejected, don't you?

It's ok, you can laugh out loud, I know it sounds ridiculous, but it is also true. It wasn't always my stance to welcome rejection, or the fearful NO! I used to worry so much about what the response would be from others when I would put my work out there, that the rejection or critical comments used to cripple me. And then I realized that truly, it was fuel to help me overcome what was...

Am I an Impostor?

Seriously,  the impostor syndrome is real for anyone embarking on something new. It’s even defined in the dictionary as follows:

Impostor Syndrome is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud".

Of course, people feel this way, especially when some are coached to follow the...

As I share these amazing conversations I have had on my podcast, I am in awe of these women I have interviewed so far.

How Do I?

As I work on the outline of my next book focusing on leadership and entrepreneurial endeavors, I reviewed my clients' initiatives and accomplishments to date and then paused to ask myself a couple of questions. "Why did they come to me in the first place? What was the question(s) that they initially were asking? Is there a common thread in each case that brought them to my team and I to assist...

Your focus guides everything.

Ever hear the saying, "What you focus on, you find"? I first heard this said at a Tony Robbins event, and then again from one of his coaches in another program and it completely resonates with me.

Focus is such a powerful tool that guides your life. Sometimes it's hard to decide what to focus on. Sometimes our lives are so busy with noise, critical thoughts, judgment, and business, that our...

Effective Leadership: Take A Pause.

I have been coaching a new CEO of a startup that asked for guidance on how he could better manage his reactive energy that tends to drain him and bring him down when he is met with adversity or disagreements in the workplace. We conducted a leadership assessment that I leverage to get the feedback from others and had him do a self-evaluation to gather some evidence on how he is perceived by...

Are you hungry enough?

This quote from Steve Jobs is so perfect for the topic I want to discuss: Stay hungry. Stay Foolish. I have been thinking about the word hunger a lot and how it serves us, drives us, and is an amazing trigger for assessing what we really want. 

In the context of weight loss, which I am way to familiar with the yoyo affects of focusing on weight management, one common denominator...

Work-Life Balance is a Fancy Word for "Trade Off"

I used to strive for work-life balance. It was a term that was introduced into the workforce in the late 70's, early 80's, to help companies focus on how they could create a corporate culture that would consider family life for employees and have "after work hours" available to connect with those they love.  As technology has allowed us to manage our lives from our phones, and these days...
