The words for October are "Active Patience."
A lot of regrouping happened in September! And now that the dust is settling, many of you are reporting frustration because not much seems to be happening. In a recent session with a client, I coined this phrase - Active Patience - to describe the caliber of waiting that feels prevalent right now. We're not just waiting for something 'out there' to happen. We're still asking questions, being curious, running down rabbit holes, and gathering up all the information acquired. In short, we're alert, present with the process we're in, working it, or it's working us, and yes, having patience and trust that the next clue piece will arrive and help make sense of all that has already transpired.
If you don't know what to do, do nothing. Wait, and actively ask, 'what more do I need to know?' The answers will out, and the 'juice' from those moments can fuel our initiatives!

"When I was discerning whether or not to work with Kelleen, I read through the testimonials on her website. I saw words like "genius", "amazing coach", "my biggest supporter and my most honest advisor", and "indispensable". The skeptic in me thought, "Could someone really be THIS good??"Yes, she is this good.Kelleen has innate gifts that she uses to bring forth the truth. The beauty of her process is that she finds what exists uniquely within and brings it forward in a way that is both empowering and authentic. She helps bring clarity to chaos by helping people know themselves better, and in doing so find higher levels of success. And while she makes it appear effortless, she draws from both her significant formal education and a wealth of varied professional experiences...all of that makes her coaching both insightful and meaningful.
I have come to value my time with her as a sounding board, a source of wisdom, and someone with whom I genuinely enjoy spending time. Working with Kelleen has made me a stronger leader."

"When I was selected to do a TEDx talk, I felt pretty confident in my ability to write a concise, funny, detailed and representative presentation on the subjects allotted to me. As a cartoonist, that is basically what I do, only in a different form. The organizers suggested that we use mentor/coaches to help us, if we felt that we needed help. Kelleen was a Facebook fan of my work, and I knew that she was a mentor and coach. I thought, "What do I have to lose? I can always NOT use her advice if I don't find it helpful. It turns out that engaging Kelleen was the best thing I could have done. She helped me whittle down my talk to the essences of the subjects, she listened to my presentation multiple times and had great advice on how to make it better. She offered lots of encouragement, and sat in the audience grinning and laughing along with the rest of the crowd. And perhaps the best thing was that she always came back to the idea that I knew what I was doing; I just needed a little outside perspective to make it the best it could be. I highly recommend her services and I highly recommend her!"
