I spend a lot of time in the mountains of North Carolina. Walking and hiking, of course. And also just thinking, and being. When this photo was taken, the weather had gotten warmer, and the frogs, down by the pond, were croaking so loudly they sounded like a gaggle of ducks!
Since you've made it this far, you probably want to know more about my work. My mentoring practice is the result of the last 17 years spent exploring personality and the process of change and the intersection of nature, human nature and health and healing. I study personality patterns, emotions, choice, and environment and their impact on work, change, and personal development. I am specifically curious about how personality impacts our experience, and vice versa. I take all of this curiosity and learning, and aggregate it into a process to help people realize their full potential and a balanced whole life.
And, I do a similar thing for companies and non-profits, too.
In 2003, I received a master's degree from Johns Hopkins called Organizational Counseling, which focused not just on the individual but also on organized groups of people, i.e. teams or companies. Companies hire me to work with their employees, helping them to work well together and to foster dedication and well-being inside the organization. The 'new' focus on 'human sustainability' has been my old focus. One of my clients who works at Stanford recently sent me an article on Stanford Professor Pfeffer's new book - Dying for a Paycheck - she commented: "You've been saying this for years."
Yes, I have. This is the crux of my work - learning to work well together and build work environments that acknowledge the human-environment-mission alignment. The scope of the work ranges from leadership team meetings using assessments like the Enneagram and the Strengthsfinder to de-escalating a crisis situation. A recent client hired me because a death occurred at their workplace and it had a profound effect on all involved. There are actual best practices that can be brought to employees when traumatic events occur. I am proud to assist leaders and teams to find ways to deal with crisis and trauma and move forward to well-being and productivity.
My practice keeps growing and is now international with clients in South America and Europe.
So here's my ask of you: do connect with me. I want to hear from you. I keep my mentoring packages affordable so as many people as possible can go through the process. Call me 828-329-8777. My first consult is no charge.
