Just Checking In!

Three simple words. They carry a message of; I care, I see you, I’m acknowledging the importance of our relationship.  In the coaching world, we are taught to ‘check in’ periodically in the coaching session as well as throughout the coaching engagement to make sure that we are working toward what the client wants.  What […]

How Will You Play the Game?

Recently I watched a clip of a tennis match on LinkedIn.  I re-shared the clip because it was an amazing display of not giving up, giving in, or quitting.  I watched it over and over because I thought it was unbelievable how the one player kept the other player (I believe it was Andy Roddick) […]

BALANCE IS ALL ABOUT RECOVERY

This morning as I was practicing my yoga, I was reminded that balance is all about recovery.  I would also add before you practice recovery, you need to know what balance looks like for you.  Balance is not a 50/50 proposition, especially in Real Estate!  For me, balance has more to do with showing up […]

Mountainous Musings…..Unplugged and Untethered

My happy place is very specific-the Colorado Rockies. I lived in Colorado for a short 3-year period as a youth and try to get back as often as I can. This trip I had the opportunity to spend 8 wonderful days hiking and taking in the Colorado Rockies. The trip was amazing and caused me […]

The Key to Work-Life Balance

“Being with imbalance allows for balance.” Wait, what? How can being with imbalance allow balance? That’s a paradox! Yes, it is, and like most things that begin at odds with each other, when you get to the midpoint between the two, they are more alike than different. One of the most sought-after balances is work/life […]

The Game of Stability and Risk

Some people are more risk averse than others. I think I’m middle of the road. I’ve taken risks most of my life, some small, some not so small. Behind all the risks I’ve taken is a deep motivation for change, for knowing or feeling that a change is needed. There have also been times when […]

What Really Robs Us of Time and Energy!

Things that rob us of time and energy…one of the most common topics that come up in coaching! I often assess my own use of time as my ‘endless energy’ now has a definitive end-which is about 9 pm every evening! I’ve also learned over the years that I can’t manage time-time is what it […]

Creating Your ‘Starbucks’ Experience: 4 Area’s to Define Your Unique Work Experience.

When I think of ‘Creating an Experience’ I think of Starbucks, a company that sells coffee. However, Starbucks does not just sell coffee, do they? Starbucks is a company that created an ‘experience’ of coffee. So much so, that many coffee companies followed suit in creating aesthetic and service ‘experiences’ that left the costumer wanting […]

Set Intention…..and Then Pay Attention!

I really learned about setting intention as an athlete. Sure, as athletes we establish goals to achieve a new skill, new score, new win. However, the ‘process’ of being an athlete took more than just knowing what skill I needed to learn. I discovered 90% of being an athlete happened in my mind. This is […]

Leadership Is a Practice, Not a Role

For over 35 years I’ve had the opportunity to be in leadership roles, and that’s not even counting the years I served as the eldest of 5 siblings. Now there’s where I really began to understand what it means to be out front. Let me share with you, its not all fun and games! However, […]
