Now is the time for change!

When a business hits a plateau or even a downturn, the business owner typically looks to the usual suspects: strategic planning, marketing, recruiting and developing better talent, setting new goals, and tactics to improve financial results. These are all critical areas to constantly improve. But they are not enough.
 Unfortunately, business owners sometimes ignore the one factor that might really be keeping their businesses from taking off: the business owner’s thoughts which come from our belief systems. Many business owners have beliefs that ... Read more

Are you good enough?

I just want to start by saying (with not much humility) I just completed several exams where my abilities were assessed by Master Certified Coaches as “good enough” to receive my PCC or Professional Certified Coach for the ICF otherwise know as the International Coach Federation, the first and largest Association of Coaches worldwide! This is a HUGE achievement for any coach and most don’t do it because it is scary!  There are 3 levels of certification, ACC Associate Certified Coach (150+ hrs client coaching), PCC ... Read more

It May Be Time to Change for Your Well BEING

I have had times where I had several projects on my plate all demanding my attention. They weren’t really demanding my attention, I was expecting super human effort in a limited amount of time. Maybe my goal just didn’t match my calendar. I needed to sort out my priorities and make smart choices and soon realized how to structure my time. I can always tell I am overwhelmed when during work hours I am cooking, baking, doing laundry or cleaning. I have ... Read more

Are you grounded, floating or spinning?

There have been days as of late that I find myself standing in the middle of a room spinning. Not the kind you do as a kid with your arms wide looking up to the sky with puffy clouds and the sun peaking through. The kind where you can’t decide what to do next. I do know that this is temporary. My environment is not optimal at the moment with moving boxes everywhere and none of my “STUFF” anywhere nearby or ... Read more

Why not live life as a blonde?

I remember a commercial from decades ago told us if we did not like who we were we could “live it as a blonde”. As if changing our hair color was all we had to do. Is it really that simple? It has not been for me, how about you? If you don’t like what’s happening to or around you – what are you doing about it? If you want your life to be different who are you willing to become to be ...

It’s your decision, isn’t it?

“I’ve changed my mind.” is a full sentence. Just like “No.” we need not say more. Do we “need” an explanation from others when they say this to us? Why? Does a decision really need to be explained or defended? Is it really our business? Could it be about respecting others and the decisions they make for themselves? Is it just a bad habit that can be amended by no longer asking for an explanation? Just wondering what you think… Read more

What’s in a name and how did you get yours?

I was second born to my 11 month older brother in Winnipeg, Manitoba on November 28, 1958. I have 4 younger siblings of which 2 were girls and 2 were boys. I was given my father’s name Rowland, even though my parents were not married until five of the six of us were born- I was told this nugget as a teen. I was named after the perky character from the song in the movie “Tammy and the Batchelor” which came ... Read more

Evesdropping #2 “Eve has been shoulding all over herself!”

You met Eve last week in “Eve” a REAL client! Eve had come a long way in her quest for happiness and value in her first coaching session. Her next session began with thoughts about feeling guilty. Eve felt guilty about so many things. Guilt about not being the best mom, not doing enough of ‘this’ and even doing too much of ‘that’ at times…I know that you get what I am talking about. Some of you have been there, ... Read more

What are you postponing right now?

What are you postponing right now? Worrying about “it” is not an effective way of dealing with “it”. All you have done is keep the negative energy around it alive. Facing it and clearing it from your life instantly adds energy to you. Makes you lighter somehow. Even if the “it” was painful or difficult, you are now able to let it go and move on to something else. Life was meant to live, not to be postponed to a later date. ... Read more

Is your child your “Mini-Me?”

“A low self-love in the parent desires that his child should repeat his character and fortune; an expectation which the child, if justice is done him, will nobly disappoint. By working on the theory that this resemblance exists, we shall do what in us lies to defeat his proper promise and produce the ordinary and mediocre. I suffer whenever I see that common sight of a parent or senior imposing his opinion and way of thinking and being on a young ... Read more
