Leading Visions to Action
 January, 2010
2010: Happy New Decade!
I'm sure many of you have seen Julie & Julia, the film with master actress, Meryl Streep, starring in  possibly one of her very best roles as Julia Child. A multiple Academy Award winner, Streep rightly earned the 2010 Golden Globe Awards for best actress.

Also, we experienced the character of Julie Powell (Amy Adams),offering us a beautiful reminder of the qualities of Self-Mastery: Vision, Passion, Focus, Practice, Set-Backs, Failures, Commitment, Discipline, and Courage. Julie Powell set a very specific 365-day goal and achieved it; in fact, she actually superceded it. She became a master, by self-mastery.

As we enter a new year, we are all crafting  our vision maps for what we would like to create and  master this year and beyond.

 What would you what would you like to master this year?

A new leadership role. . .a published book . . a new business . .  a  buried passion . . . a sport, dance, or language . . buying or selling your home. . .  reducing your footprint. . . living more simply . . . or possibly just having more compassion for self and others? 

If you need a jump start on YOUR master plan for 2010 and beyond, I invite you to contact me by Feb. 1 to a schedule a complimentary call to explore how we can most beneficially work (and play) together this year.

The future is now! What do you want to manifest?

In heartfelt collaboration,

Awakened Entrepreneurs & Collaborative Leadership

Collaboration is the new competition.  Moving from solo-preneurship to collaborative partnerships is a skill of an Awakened Entrepreneur. Know your purpose, get the right people on the bus, and then collaboratively develop your message and strategy based on your clients needs.

 In this workshop, you will gain the tools to:

  • Learn the formula for craft a One-Page Business Plan™
  • Develop a consistent social media presence with the Big Four
  • Transform your expertise into products, seminars, workshops, e-books.
  • Choose integral partners in alignment with your values and big vision
  • Transform warm leads into engaged clients.
Coaching in the New Economy

Times have changed everywhere, for everyone.  We are all being asked to simplify and examine what's really important.

The New Economy is not about competition, but rather collaboration and supportive relationships in all areas of your life: in the workplace, in business, and in your community and families.

Who 's on your Personal Board of Directors? Take a look at my previous post on Lifeline Teams and Relationship Capital. Isn't it time to enroll a coach?

Imagine this:

It's January, 2011.  Looking back at 2010, what did you accomplish?

Is your life, work, and business in alignment with your greatest values?  (What are your values?)
What did you have to you let go (pattern, habit, or physical things) of in order to live more authentically in purpose?  (What is your purpose?)
What improvements did you make to your business processes/systems?
What new product/service did you successfully launch or expand?
How do you fulfill your clients' needs? (What do your clients/colleagues say?)
What new skills/knowledge did you develop?
How much more balance did you create in your daily life?
What contribution to the planet have you (and your business) made?

Whether you are in transition, just starting a business, or an accomplished organizational leader, I can help.

Synthesizing over 20 years of work in leadership development, human potential, learning systems, and "roll-up your sleeves" start-ups, I specialize in helping organizational leaders and entrepreneurs fine tune their business and marketing strategies, create learning products and seminars, develop human capital, and overall organizational effectiveness.
