What if you were to only think in positive outcomes???

Crazy, but there is much truth to this changing your outlook. I am an 'optimistic realist', which is another way of saying I easily fall into a pattern of clarifying negative outcomes after the idea process has begun. During burnout and times of intense stress people are easily confused by my withdrawal and slip from … Continue reading What if you were to only think in positive outcomes???

Speaking to Another’s Level

What a great way to spend the long weekend! Speaking and communing with young leaders in a beautiful camp setting. Nature, a purposeful group seeking knowledge and growth, and the time allotted to do so properly. A safe environment that fosters faith and challenges the community to be shaped all at once.

Another year, another teenager excited to get a job. It is always an interesting time as a parent, helping your kid with the job search and learning to give up some part of your purpose of complete caregiver. Setting up to let go. They become adults.

Mentorship…it’s all about relationship #leadership #coaching

Are you aware of the relationships you have created around you that continue to shape you? 2008 was … Continue reading Mentorship…it’s all about relationship #leadership #coaching
