Do you get stuck in imposter syndrome in your leadership? Are you a Professor who’s trying to be out front all the time because someone told you that’s what leaders do? Or are you the Connector who’s focusing on the numbers when really you want to work with the people? Maybe you’re the Natural who’s […]
Standing in the front, what do you feel? Pleased? Insecure? Terrified? Exhilarated? You are the biggest asset you bring to any presentation.

When I get nervous, I laugh and speak like I’m keeping up with Lorelai and Rory on the way to Luke’s. Especially when hard conversations come up. It’s hard to tell from the outside, because I’m always been a fast talker. But I know when I’m monologuing. And that wasn’t helping my relationships. I was […]
How do I trust myself to lead? How do I shake this imposter syndrome? Surely there is something better than muscling through. Suddenly, I was crying with my business coach. Right there on the Zoom with my entire cohort, tears spilled over my lashes. My coach was walking me through reviewing a mixed, but exciting […]
I totaled my dad’s car when I was 16—in my own driveway… I backed the ‘82 Cutlass Supreme a random F250 black truck with an enormous tow hitch that had chosen that moment to turn around in our driveway. What I didn’t use that winter morning? My mirrors. Cost me a lot of time scooping […]

WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HAPPENING?? I’m longing for peace. Conflict and strife and confusion keep getting in the way. And I’m just so done. I want to make good decisions that lead toward peace and goodness, and this 2020 business keeps coming up with new things to make me weary! When I feel this […]
You talk to yourself all the time. Sometimes, you a little salty, my friend. Much of the time, we just let thoughts sail right into the truth pile without, well, a second thought. But we can grab them. Hold them up for a mini inspection. And then choose to change the thought. In my faith, […]
People are the best. Until they are the worst. And sometimes, it me. I can be the worst. Each of us can. How we cope with other people is another opportunity to observe ourselves. How do you deal with people in getting your needs met? (See this post on Enneagram Motivations!) Our interpersonal coping style, […]
In stress, difficulty, conflict, each Enneagram type follows what I call intuitive moves. Some teachers call them lines and arrows or stress and growth. The moves of integration and disintegration are intuitive. We naturally go these ways when we need something and can’t get it with our typical patterns. It’s you, but on a bad […]
