Leadership isn’t for a moment. It’s for a lifetime. Join me at Mount Saint Mary’s University’s 2018 Women’s Leadership Conference, and discover what it takes to lead consistently, effectively and in times of change.
Are you ready to unlock more creativity, build stronger relationships, and improve your work performance? The lines between our personal and professional lives are blurred more than ever these days. Whatever is happening to us outside of work – whether stressful, painful, or joyful – follows us into our work.
What moves me, calls me to action and serves as the source of my inspiration you ask? This!!
How does one push through hard conditions? Why is it strong some days and weak on others? Can we expand our supposed willpower limits so we can achieve/experience more of what’s desired and live the “good” life?
This may be a way to understand exhaustion that actually makes a difference. Sleep deprivation, or exhaustion, is an epidemic we’re all familiar with. We subconsciously (if not consciously) celebrate it as an achievement, as if being overly scheduled somehow conveys just how valuable we are. The speed at which things are happening and the need to keep up are running us all ragged. But is it really the stuff out there – people, life, things, process, timing, and circumstances – that’s wearing us out? I’ve always been super interested in why certain friends of mine can’t function under 9 hours of sleep and others are continually making magic on 4. Since reflecting on exhaustion and what contributes to mine, I’m thinking there’s more to the equation than the simple input of quality sleep. There are periods when I’m intensely engaged and scheduled to the brim with endless energy despite little

I also experience it in business quite a bit, when I’m approached with an out-of-the-box opportunity that feels beyond my expertise or experience. The thought of “going for it” can range from tingly to paralyzing. Just last week I was interviewed on a local radio talk show for The Real Estate Insiders Group because they wanted the perspective of a life coach among the real estate experts and host. When they first reached out I inevitably bumped up against my edge, “I’ve
With the work I do, I explore a lot of different perspectives and principles that can actualize a joyful and powerful life. Thanks to a gift from a recent client of mine, I’ve come across a cornerstone idea that solidifies the foundation for all of it. It could be the one distinction that makes all the difference for you and your life. Let’s talk about belief for a second. We don’t always realize it but everything we live is based off beliefs we hold. Without sounding overly philosophical, the only thing I could ever assert as truth is that “I exist.” I can’t even say for certain that YOU exist, as you are my experience as a perception. Because I perceive you and I believe you to be there, my experience is consistent with my beliefs, and so I inadvertently hold it as truth. It may
