Getting over trauma can be hard, but here are some thoughtful tips that can help.

Watching a loved one go through grief and distress can be incredibly tough. Much as we desire it, we cannot step in and take away their pain, fix the situation or bring a loved one back.

Our natural instinct may be to try to comfort them, counsel them, take their side, or judge other parties involved. But these are common mistakes we make that can impede the healing process.

To help someone close to you through their heartache more effectively, focus on empowering them to find their own way. This will look different for every person and situation, but if you stick to some key principles, and ask some different questions, you can be a positive influence on their journey:

No judgement zone

A common mistake we make when trying to...

Heading Towards Burnout? Time to Change Tracks!

Uncategorized Jul 05, 2019

Ending stress and becoming healthily (and happily) engaged at work and in business.

If work isn’t making you happy, chances are it isn’t making you healthy either.

Research has indicated that employee burnout is responsible up to 50% of workforce turnover. Despite more and more organizations focusing on employee engagement, it seems that not only is stress in the workplace on the rise but so are stress-associated health risks such as cardiovascular disease.

Burnout occurs when mentally or physical ability to function is severely affected, due to exposure to prolonged stress and/or frustration in the workplace. Sources of stress can vary, but are most often connected to unhappiness in a workplace due to: excessive workload and high expectations or demands, feeling choiceless or not in control with your work or business tasks, or a toxic or unsupportive work culture. Burnout very rarely affects just one area of life—it impacts both professional and...

Marriage and Money Moves: 5 Keys to Female Financial Empowerment

Uncategorized Mar 22, 2019

Published on SWAAY

Marriage changes a lot of things – and it can have a significant impact on how you deal with your finances. Marriage can contribute to your financial empowerment too, but not many of us are taught about how we can actually do this successfully and easily.
Before I married my second husband, I was a single mom of young twin-girls, and I was doing great in my career and finances. In fact, I was a Vice President of Programs & Services working with Fortune 100 companies and top government agencies, owned a penthouse condominium, had no debt, and my salary was twice as much money as my husband-to-be.

Shortly before we got married, my father passed away and so much changed in my career and life priorities. One of those changes, once I got married, was to leave the technology sector and my lucrative executive job to work as a Senior Vice President at a not-for-profit organization taking a 40 percent pay cut in my salary.

It took...

Here’s How to Improve Your Social and Professional Standing

Uncategorized Dec 14, 2018

In a world of influencers, entrepreneurs, and people looking to make an impact, what will really make you stand out?

While many may be looking for that perfect formula for success based on finding the right thing to say to the right people at the right time, interacting this way can come across as very inauthentic.

People really desire true connection and genuine engagement by those who are willing to be present without judgment and are vulnerable enough to be themselves without having to project an ideal image. Both you and your business stand to gain much more from allowing your true voice to shine.

Here are some do’s and don’ts that will allow you to have an authentic voice that engages those around you:

Don’t Judge

If you go into any interaction holding onto rigid views of right and wrong, good and bad, positive and negative, it immediately thwarts authentic connection. However, if you are...

How to Speak up When You Can’t Find the Words

Uncategorized Dec 02, 2018

 on Third Age

Avoiding confrontation. Dreading consequences. Trying not to offend or hurt someone. Naturally shy. Culturally sensitive. Or, just afraid to rock the boat. There are many reasons we may ‘bite our tongue’ and studies show just how often we choose to stay silent when we have something important to say.

  • 69% of workplace managers resist communicating with their staff.1
  • 72% of employees say they don’t speak up at work when they feel they should.2
  • 74% of people are afraid of public speaking.3
  • 65% of therapists say breakdown in communication is the top cause of divorce.4

Not speaking up in social and professional circles is a global epidemic … and I’m on a mission to help stop the spread of unhealthy silence.

WE ALL TO SOME DEGREE HOLD BACK OUR THOUGHTS

Culture plays a huge part in how we communicate but we all, to some degree, have learned to hold back our true thoughts when we fear the consequences....

5 Tips that Will Get Your Voice Heard

Uncategorized Nov 27, 2018

Published on Best Ever You on November 26, 2018

Tired of hesitating or hiding? Sick of feeling like no one wants to hear what you have to say?

Being heard in the world isn’t just about being chatty, witty, outgoing, or finding an audience who is willing to listen – it is about using your unique capacities to authentically interact, communicate, and engage with the world and people around you so that something greater gets created for everyone.

If this sounds like the voice you’d like to have in life, here are 5 essential tips to help get you there:

1. Don’t judge, assume or anticipate

Do you spend time anticipating how others will respond to your words and ideas before you even open your mouth? Do you go into conversations expecting conflicts or problems? Do you judge how interactions with someone will go today based on how it went yesterday, last week, or last year?

Most reasons we have for not speaking are based on judgments of past experiences,...
