17 Jun Employee Engagement Strategies That Work: How ‘Bout That?

One of the best parts of my job is getting to work in all sorts of organizations as a consultant on leadership and organizational development. I work in places ranging from schools to health care systems to fortune 500 companies. My anecdotal observation across the board is in alignment with Gallup poll research on employee engagement which shows disengagement as high. In 2015, the percentage of U.S. workers in 2015 who Gallup considered engaged in their jobs averaged 32%. The majority (50.8%) of employees were "not engaged," (a concept called presenteeism suggests people show up but are largely absent) while another...

31 Mar Fear of Putting Yourself Out There

I had to do some mental calisthenics in launching this site: First, there is so much to consider: Which picture is the best picture? How do I want to describe my offerings? How can I cull together the most powerful testimonials? Then, there are the polarities to balance from my ego to my heart. Polarities are interdependent variables pairs that coexist as energy systems where both are important, but not to the neglect of the other. Deciding to denote myself “Public Figure” on my Facebook professional page took a minute. Who am I to self proclaim public figure? “Oh, no, is this too much...

29 Mar The Birth of a Brand:

Ladies and Gentleman, may I please humbly and appreciatively introduce you to my new home on the interwebs: Putting together a brand is damn hard work, especially when it’s a personal brand and especially when your life is your work. (Note: I am not living only to work; I navigate work & play quite nicely.) The truth is, though, I’ve been called to do what I do. Seriously. It’s a crazy feeling—to be called to your work; to be a part of something larger than yourself. It’s like participating in a theatrical production where everyone has a role to play on...

01 Oct Wow, 8 years.

Linkedin reminds me that it's my 8 year work anniversary of being a social entrepreneur in the positive psychology, mindfulness, wellbeing space. (We didn't even use the word wellbeing in 2008.) I've worked primarily as a solopreneur and then on a city-wide initiative (born out of my Master's capstone) called SOMO Leadership Labs, a dream come true. SOMO was an experiment. We landed in Cleveland Ohio for a beautiful bit of transformative time with lots of real data, positive outcomes, and friends for life. So many. Most recently, I've joined The Flourishing Center and I get to work every day with my best friend Emiliya Zhivotovskaya and...
