Is this silently slowing you and your organization’s growth?

Recently, I was a guest facilitator for a small online coaching cohort for emerging women leaders. We uncovered a suprising theme that was blocking all of them from embracing transitions, which are essential to growth.

How Mental Resolution of Chronic Pain Leads to More Joy and Success

Last week, I gave an example of illusion-spotting with a client. This week, I’ll tell you about how I do it with myself. A few months ago, I got the urge to train for a third marathon. It has been four years since my last, and my first two experiences were less than joyful. Naturally, [...]
