Hi, I’m Jenn, and I’m a recovering conflict avoider…who now helps people solve conflict. Raise your hand if you would like to run the other way when there’s conflict. Or maybe you’re the one who goes into solution-mode and policies. Possibly you are the one ready to fight?? For most of us, the idea that […]
Laying on the hood of my dad’s ‘82 Oldsmobile, staring at the stars, I used to dream of how to explore the sky. What could I do to get to space? (I was also obsessed with Space Camp, thank you, Lea Thompson). I’ve been creating options of exploring and excitement for a long time. It’s […]
My heart started racing and my eyes grew larger as the organizers of my TEDx event told us they had to cancel the full event and create a hybrid event. No longer was the full event in person, and the speakers would have to come to Canada to record two weeks before. When’s the last […]
What’s the movie that plays in your mind about yourself? An even more important question, who’s writing the script? Earlier this year, I did a photoshoot for my speaker website. (Y’all, just typing that sentence brings up all kinds of stories. An internal movie that I am actively editing.) For years (and if I’m completely transparent, […]
The purple curling ribbon slipped from the package as I eagerly opened a present from my high-school boyfriend (who happened to become my husband). I smiled and lightly brushed the cellophane pages of the leather album, full of prints of Michael and me and our friends. My 18-year-old self laughed at the memories and hugged […]
I didn’t feel like a failure, but a screw-up. A scatterbrain or a flibbertigibbet. It’s weeks into the new year, and I can’t seem to get my ONE tiny new habit going. How do I change this?
I was in tap class for about 32 seconds when I was seven years old. But I adored it. The sounds, the movement, the power. Fred Astaire, Vera-Ellen, Gregory Hines, Dulé Hill, Christian Borle, my own kids—It’s probably my favorite style of dance. We had a demonstration class at my kids’ studio last month. Miss […]
Do you remember getting a draft back from a teacher and it was covered in red and had REVISE in big letters? In a former leadership role, I wrote and edited thousands of words for an application to the US Department of Education. Multiple essays on specific topics with precise word counts to showcase our […]
The Enneagram and connection can save you millions of dollars. (Yes, MILLIONS) Forbes used data from Achievers showing each disengaged employee costs a company 34% of their salary. That’s a $13,600 cost for the median $40K salary. Ouch! So what can you do? How do you engage employees? Create a culture of honoring and respecting […]
Who’s holding the director’s mic inside your head? Do they deserve it? A few months ago I realized I’d been hiding. I’ve had some old stories from an abusive leader running the show in the back of my mind. (Have you done that? Regina George from high school is still telling you no one likes […]
