ICYMI, my friend, Last weekend I flew in to NYC to participate in FEARLESS FIRE, a transformational public speaking intensive, with a group of leaders from across the world. Tonight, Thursday, March 14, we will deliver 12-15 minute stories we crafted over the weekend about our work; I am so excited and proud to reclaim […]

Hello hello my friend! This weekend, Iโ€™m participating in FEARLESS FIRE, a transformational public speaking intensive, with a diverse group of leaders from across the globe.  Weโ€™re spending this weekend together hunting urgent stories to share in this current moment. Next week, Thursday, March 14, we will deliver 12-15 minute stories that we crafted over […]

Hey Friend-o. Itโ€™s fair to say that I can be a bitโ€ฆwordy. #noregrets So today I thought Iโ€™d switch it up: Rather than tell, I want to show you something: This is a picture of me when I was 7 – and very into gymnastics and dance (something my own daughters do not believe to […]

Hard truth, soft pillow for International Women’s Day: Pay women. My friend, every year since 2015, I have been asked to speak at events to celebrate IWD and Women’s History Month.ย  And every year, without fail, at least one of those โ€œoffersโ€ is unpaid. (Happily, this year the two events I was invited to speak […]

Happy Friday baby! I moderated two sensational HR / DEI / Belonging Leadership panels at HRD Canada this week, and the wisdom blew me away.

My friend, I have always been a procrastinator. I vividly remember waking up at my boyfriend’s place at university, bleary eyed and craving salt from too many drinks the night before, looking at the 7:15 am staring back at me on the clock, knowing I had a 9 am class to catchโ€ฆ โ€ฆwith a paper […]

Oh hiiii there!! Fresh off the heels of Valentineโ€™s Day EVERYWHERE, I wanted to pop in and say how much I love having you on this email list. I know. So cheesy. But also so true. When I started my leadership consultancy and performance coaching business (by accident) NINE years ago, I never dreamed I would […]
