Where does it go? The crisis from work, when you’re home; the drama as you left the house? The relentless news cycles…
Fall Equinox is upon us. When day and night are equal in length. When long summer days give way to earlier sunsets and cooler temperatures. School is back in session. Holidays aren’t here yet (despite store displays to the contrary). It’s that window of time, post-summer, to dig in, to work hard. It’s fourth […]
In Defense of Keyboard Inactivity
I remember working for a shipping company as an ‘unloader’ when I was in my mid-twenties. It was a late afternoon shift. There wasn’t much to it, the conveyer belt was positioned into the truck and we, the unloaders, lifted the packages onto the belt with the label facing up, as fast […]
Is there anyone NOT managing challenging circumstances outside of work right now? It seems like everyone I know…myself included…is juggling really hard stuff at home, while also needing to be at the top of their game in their work life.

Bringing your whole self to work, including your bladder
Apologies to the faint of heart, but we need to have a little potty talk. Let me explain … I have been talking with a variety of clients these past weeks to get a feel for what it’s like to walk in their shoes at their workplace. These […]
Equinox is upon us. That time, just twice a year, when daylight and darkness are equal. Ahh, the balance of it all. And it happens only twice a year. Even our planet seems to understand that perfect balance just isn’t intended to happen all the time. So many people, on hearing the phrase work/life […]
From zooming sled dogs to Zoom meetings, how do we keep and hold people’s attention?
As I write this, I am deep into planning the Healing the Healers Dogsled Days — the day trips my mushing partner and I have envisioned and discussed and imagined and created over many, many months. We’ve designed the day anticipating […]
What if we lightened up a little bit?
I was trying to decide how I would approach a speaking engagement in which most attendees were going to be suspicious of anyone wearing a mask. For me, there was no question that I would wear one (or maybe two), but I didn’t want to start my program […]
