I Would Love to Join You at Your Next Event

I am passionate about bringing life messages alive for my clients and audiences.  With 4 decades of teaching, coaching, research, and leadership experience, I have mastered the art of helping my audiences find the "do-able" parts of even the most difficult inner work.


What Kids and Crabs Know:

Why Your Response to Change Will Determine Your Success and Happiness

Offered in three formats: Talks of 20-30 minutes or 45-60 minutes; Mini-Workshop (2-2.5 hrs)

Change is a natural part of life.  Kids and crabs know that.  And they respond to change eagerly and immediately. 

Change is inevitable.  Economies change.  Political parties change.  Businesses change.  Kids change.  Families change.  Organizations change. 

Like it or not, the changes happening on the outside of us are calling forth growth on the inside of us.  When we respond consciously to our inner discomforts, forgo blaming others, and courageously look for what the change is offering us...we will not only weather the changes that come in our lives, we will build better, more remarkable lives as a result of them.

In this talk, I will explore:

  • Ten signs that you may be personally feeling and reacting to impending changes around you (in your family, business, world).
  • Three responses to change that can minimize your options and blow up your life
  • Three responses to change that can help you deal with your feelings in healthy and successful ways
  • The secret to re-building your life rapidly in the midst of uncomfortable change

(Note: I do not charge to speak to groups of 50 of more.  For pricing information for groups less than 50, please contact me.)


Resolutions that Stick:

Creating Success from the Inside Out

Offered as a full-day (or two 2.5 hour sessions) workshop

Living life trying to accommodate to OPS (Other Peoples’ Stuff) is a sure-fire way to end up with dead dreams and an unhappy, stuck life.   In this workshop, we will examine two approaches to life: Hard Work and Heart Work.  Participants will learn that Hard Work is characterized by the RIP strategy – Repress, Ignore, and Pretend.   Heart Work, on the other hand, emanates from our passion and heart’s desire. Participants will explore their values and desires and create a plan to accomplish a current dream based on Heart Work. 

Note: Other talks and workshops can be created around your organization’s needs.
