LEAD in Istanbul – teambuilding and leadership

May 2, 2010 by

More than 3 years ago, I had the honor of attending an International Coach Training Program and became friends with a talented woman, Gila Seritcioglu. We set an intention to present L-E-A-D workshops in her country, Turkey.

That intention, vision and dream became a reality. At the beginning of the month I presented Unharness Your Leader-Self, Leading and Living Your Vision, and Boundaries LEAD workshops in Istanbul, Turkey.

L-E-A-D goes International

March 16, 2010 by

Dreams do come true!  Taking LEAD international has been a vision for about 3 years and it has become a reality with the assistance and support of a dear friend that lives in Istanbul, Turkey!

My friend Gila and I dreamt of offering LEAD workshops in her country from the first time she experienced Leading and Living Your Vision workshop in March 2007.   We talked, planned, and put off the vision for one reason or another when the universe opened up and said “The time is NOW!”   Read the rest of this entry »

YES!

January 26, 2010 by

As the New Year came ringing in I was blessed to have received approval of my Professional Coaching Certification through the International Coach Federation

Many of you were a part of my journey to completing the International Gestalt Coach Training Program, taking the test, were a part of the coaching requirement (750+ logged coaching hours), and the application process.  Read the rest of this entry »

Adding young & female managment = change

January 19, 2010 by

A recent article stated that GM was promoting more women and younger people to their management team.  Making this change signaled “they are serious about getting younger people in and running the place right”.  As an Organizational Development professional I see that statement as VERY interesting?

We all know the auto industry is in a financial bind, to put it mildly.  And we all know the industry has needed changes long before the Government bail out in 2009.  Read the rest of this entry »

Paying it forward with Gratitude

January 7, 2010 by

I wonder how many people took to heart my November message about Gratitude?  When you put something out to the universe rarely do you really know how it perceived, its impact anyone or if anyone actually read what you wrote!  On a rare occasion, someone might actually tells you of your impact and how it effected their life.

My rare occasion occurred when I visited my eye doctor.  He was so excited to tell me how he took my message of gratitude to heart and challenged not only his children but his church as well.   Read the rest of this entry »

Blessings

December 23, 2009 by

As we celebrate the beauty of the holiday and bring 2009 to a close, I encourage you to embrace the joys of the year, release the wounds of the past to the universe for healing, and open your arms wide to happiness and abundance in the New Year.

I share with you the words of “The Greatest Gifts” with the desire for you to embrace and allow them to be alive in you now and throughout the New Year.

May we break boundaries, tear down walls, and build on the foundation of goodness inside each of us.

 

May we look past differences, gain understanding, and embrace acceptance. Read the rest of this entry »

Gratitude – pass it on

November 24, 2009 by

Thanksgiving provides the perfect time to reflect and acknowledge the many blessings in our lives so we can continue to manifest more of them. Why not  reserve more than one day a year to recognize what is important to you?  Stop right now and make a date with yourself 4 times a year to reflect on the blessings in your life. Schedule a date for yourself in your Blackberry, Outlook, I-Phone, paper calendar (yes, people  still use the good old standby paper method) or what ever system you use and give yourself 5 minutes 4 times a year to take stock of what’s important to you.   Heck, go ahead, challenge yourself to do it more than 4 times a year! Or what if instead of keeping it to yourself, you TOLD people that you were grateful for them, or something they did right when they did it? What difference would it make in you, your family, friends, employees, and co-workers, gosh what might be different with each person you touch?    Read the rest of this entry »

Inspiration in a home run!

November 10, 2009 by

Turn on the news and what do you see and hear?  Another robbery?  Child abduction?  More layoffs?  Plant closings?  More jobs lost or homes being foreclosed on?  It can be down right depressing to hear all the negative things going on in the world today. 

Wouldn’t it be great to hear of the good things happening?  All the hundreds and thousands of people giving of their time to feed those in need.  To hear about the father Read the rest of this entry »
