A letter to myself.

I often write letters to myself. Usually in time in of stress and change. It calms me to talk to myself. And helps me set my intentions.  Anyway, I found one of my letters today deep inside a folder on my desktop. (When I get a new computer Jack puts my entire desktop on a …

How might we…

Several weeks ago I had the chance to attend and speak at the Conscious Capitalism Summit in Chicago. I love this group so much. Seriously. I LOVE THEM. John Mackey with Whole Foods was one of the keynote speakers. Like me, John believes that we need to bring LOVE out the corporate closet. I don’t often …

Be the Interviewer.

Last night I was talking to my “guyfriend” (silly word I know, but it’s what I call him) and he said, “It occurred to me that every time I’m with someone new, I do a better job at listening if I see myself as the interviewer.”  I laughed. He writes beautiful people profiles for magazines …

Know What Your Job Is

I recently saw a clip of Bryan Cranston (aka Walter White) in which he offered up a dose of wisdom that makes real sense. And while his insight is geared toward actors, it really applies to all of us: “You’re not going there to get a job. You’re going there to present what you do.”  Which got me thinking. …

Just Our Type

A few of us were recently discussing the different ways people handle things around the office — from timelines to brainstorming, conflict to contributing in meetings. Which got us thinking. How can a group of people who work so well together as a team have such vastly different working styles and personal preferences on an individual level?  So …

Space matters.

A while back we took a leap of faith and did an extreme makeover on our space in the INNOVATE building. We love it here, but we were way over due for a bit of spiffing up. Little did we realize that it would transform the way we work and connect. We knocked down ALL our …

I’ll be honest. I haven’t thought of the word “thrive” very much. It’s a pretty badass word. Sadly, it just didn’t resonate as word I used in my thoughts and conversations. A recent speaking event changed that. Brian Passon of the Wellness Underground engaged me to speak at their un-conference for wellness professionals. As a …
