Nurture your working life: part 1 (Intention)

This is a series on nurturing your working life Where I sit, we’re on the cusp of spring. Wherever you sit, I hope you’re surrounded by that same feeling of imminent growth – both from the earth around you, and for YOU and your working life. Let’s start with some definitions… What is nurturing? To …

Your Empowered Workspace

I googled “why space matters” to find a meaningful quote to open this post and all the results were about outer space. Which might say more about my search history than anything else. But today, we’re discussing your empowered workspace, not colonizing Mars. Here on earth, our space has an important role to play. Used …

The superpower you’re downplaying

I’m talking about feelings and here’s why: many of my clients come to coaching focused on tactics. But so often they’re missing the fact that what’s brought them in, what’s held them back, and what’s driving them forward is – in large part – their feelings. (Thoughts too, but we’ll save that for another day) …

When change stacking leads to transformation

We’ve all heard that change is the only constant. Isn’t it remarkable then, when long stretches of time pass with barely any change at all? You stay in a role for years longer than you anticipated. The starter home ends up being your forever home. You eat the same breakfast out of the same bowl …

How to live more consciously

Remember those “what to pack” lists you’d get before summer camp?  Underwear x 20. Flashlight.

So much of what’s in our lives …

Ever been stuck on a big career decision – feeling out of alignment, confused or paralyzed? Over and over, I see three major decision points that stump us. Three career crossroads that we stop and stand at, gazing around… some of us for a long time. Let’s stop doing that! Chances are if you’re reading …

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you have to

I’m kind of a hustler. I know some people don’t like that word; some days I don’t either. But I’m out there chasing, growing and building and trying my best to live an awesome and intentional life, and I call that hustling. There are many days when things flow. But some days it feels like …

Get sh*t done: paths to finding flow

When I was a kid, my grandparents took me to Casa Loma. It’s an historic stone mega-mansion in the middle of Toronto that’s now a public attraction. I was immediately obsessed. Obviously I took the visitor pamphlet with the castle’s floor plan back to my grandparents’ apartment. And to my great delight, my grandfather, who was …
