Be a PROACTIVE leader

“Crisis” is what happens when we see red flags in our people and our systems and we address the symptoms, but not the root cause of the problem. 

The events that have taken place thus far in 2020 have been a long time coming, and like it or not, we are now being forced to shift. While challenging and forcing us to grow, my perspective is that ultimately these disruptions will...

Do you have a hard time "turning it off?"

I know. I get it. I'm a high performer. I'm a leader. I'm an entrepreneur. The old joke about entrepreneurs is that we get to work half days...9am-9pm.

I'm a mom, a wife, a homemaker, a daughter, a friend, a teacher, a community member, an aunt, a coach, and I prefer to be good at all of these roles.

But, what I've learned is that if I don't take the time and space to "do me," I...

Let's talk about TIME, shall we? 

Thus far in 2020,  time has felt bizarre. We've had immensely more time cooped up in our households, we've felt the time compression of having to juggle work demands, household tasks, and homeschooling our children... and now it is summer. For many of us it feels like some of the pressure is lessening as we can be outdoors more and the demands of schooling our children are not...

I am an example of why racial issues perpetuate in US schools

Uncategorized May 28, 2020

When I saw this visual on Facebook, it caught my attention. The death of George Floyd hits close to home and I want to do something. My challenge is...what? My logical brain tells me that one white, small town mom isn't really going to make an impact. This topic seems so huge and messy, emotionally charged, and complex. Fear creeps in and I think maybe I'll say something wrong and make it worse...

Your mission this Memorial Weekend: Stand Guard at the Door of Your Mind

Uncategorized May 21, 2020

I don't know about you, but every time I enter the space of social media as of late, I feel worse for it afterward. There is such an intense amount of information, opinions, data, graphs, and stories that at some point it all just begins to swirl into a cacophony of noise and overwhelm and chaos. It's no wonder 64% of Americans are reporting worsened mental health. 

I teach people how to...

couples connection Apr 22, 2020

I've been getting emails and messages from people excited about trying our breakout module of Couples Connection, but unsure of whether or not their spouse would be open to the idea.  

In fact, that's the main objection I hear from people.  "I would love to, but my husband/wife would never do it."  So what do you do if you are the partner who wants to grow, who wants to make...

Fulfillonaire Leadership Principle #3: Leaders Bring Certainty to Uncertainty

Troubled times are where we really get to see what our leaders are made of. Now, more than ever, the world, and the state of education, is crying out for leaders who "get it."   

The ones who "get it" know that what their people really want and value is the sense that they are seen, that they are heard, that they are valued, that they are trusted, and that they matter. ...
