Immerse Yourself in Nature: August 2018

On the top of my list of favourite things to do is jumping off the dock… A carefree moment of absolute bliss, hanging in midair for a brief moment, and then, in a split second, everything changes. I am immersed in a different world. A refreshing shock to my system, a reboot of my senses, and everything is peaceful… It’s as if all of the stress simply washes away. I often struggle with how to create that same rejuvenation while I…

Reach Beyond Borders: July 2018

Last Sunday, I was sitting on the dock in my ideal “Muskoka Postcard” setting. It truly is my favourite place on the planet and it was the perfect day. I had been waiting for exactly this moment. The sun was sparkling off the water, the birds were singing a melodious tune and most importantly, I had the gift of time. Imagine: white space in my calendar; time to do whatever my heart desired. And then I got bored… Yep, I…

“Our earth is only one polka dot among a million stars in the universe.” – Yayoi Kusama On Wednesday of last week, I drove to the AGO in the bright spring sunshine with the roof down in my Mini Cooper. I was buzzing with anticipation; it was finally time to see the Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors. I met up with a good friend, grabbed a beer and we headed in. As we entered each room, the lighting and mirrors revealed…

A friend recently asked why I decided to take the course. “You already coach teams,” she said, “lots of them.” I scratched my head and realized that, while she is right, I am still intensely curious about all of the things I don’t know! A new course makes…

A Salute to Women: March 2018

With International Women’s Day coming up, I have struggled with what to say in this newsletter. This year is different. I have worried about coming across as too trivial or sounding too political, but worrying too much about how we are perceived can cripple us from saying anything at all. Never in history has there been a time when it’s more important to celebrate women and to acknowledge their contributions as leaders. So I decided that I would speak from…

Leading with Compassion: February 2018

“Ride the horse in the direction it is going” – Werner Gerhard Recently I was at a goal setting retreat and went horseback riding through a snow-covered forest trail. It was a rare opportunity to experience the outdoors and feel a deep connection with the horses. As we hit the clearing and headed back to the ranch, one of the horses decided that he had enough. That was it, game over, get off my back! Our trail guide said something…
