May the Fourth be With You

2020-05-05T14:39:02-05:00May 4th, 2020|Inspired Ideas Blog, Leadership|

ConvergenceCoaching’s resident #nerd checking in for duty! Last year, I explored leadership lessons I learned as a child from watching Star Trek from the floor of my parents’ bedroom, in my blog  Leadership Lessons from a Trekkie. However, in recognition of May 4th, or what some Star Wars fans call “May the Fourth Be with [...]

What Will Happen to Your Legacy Without Millennials?

2019-11-13T11:26:42-06:00November 13th, 2019|Leadership, Next Generation|

In my last blog, I’m a Millennial and We’re Begging to be Heard, I shared some stories and frustrations from fellow Millennials about their office culture or their bosses. Boy, oh boy! did that open a flood gate from acquaintances, friends, and family members of varying generations. As the comments and discussions increased, I realized [...]

I’m a Millennial and We’re Begging to be Heard

2019-11-13T12:14:49-06:00September 25th, 2019|Inspired Ideas, Next Generation, Next Generation, Recruiting, Retention Strategies, Succession|

At almost every event I attend with friends, the topic of work always seems to creep in. They share their stories and frustrations about their offices or their bosses and all too often I wish there was some discreet way to anonymously send articles about NextGen talent and clients, creating a better culture, or feedback [...]

Leadership Lessons from a Trekkie

2019-11-01T17:15:13-05:00May 1st, 2019|Inspired Ideas, Leadership, Personal Development|

Nearly every Thursday night in 1990, you could find my brother and I sitting on the floor in my parent’s bedroom with a bowl of popcorn anxiously anticipating the airing of a new episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It was our reward – our deeply loved tradition - and an opening for educational [...]

Don’t Leave Your Remote Culture to Chance

2020-02-12T16:49:26-06:00January 30th, 2019|Inspired Ideas, Inspired Ideas Blog|

When I first divulge to a new acquaintance or friend that I am a 100% virtual employee at ConvergenceCoaching the first response I seem to receive is, “Whoa! I am jealous. I wish I got to work at home.” Quickly followed by a second more intriguing question, “So do you actually know your co-workers?” I [...]

I’m Waving My White Flag!

2020-02-12T17:11:38-06:00August 8th, 2018|Leadership, Personal Development|

As I come off of the holiday weekend and prepare to attend my first workshop as a TLP participant, finalize details for engagements, respond to emails, organize calendars, prepare to orient a new hire on Dec. 3, and continue to develop personally and professionally… I find myself clinging to my imaginary flag pole to raise [...]

My “Forgotten” Goal Setting Step: Reflection

2018-05-03T11:01:16-05:00May 3rd, 2018|Personal Development|

5:03 a.m. came fast but there it was… my husband’s Fitbit alarm vibrating away on his wrist. Parsley, our youngest dog, army crawled out from his cave under our bed. Sleep time was over. As I stretched my arms and legs, inching my way out of bed, I reminded my husband of the plan. See, [...]

5 Strategies to Slow Down

2018-01-23T14:09:43-06:00January 23rd, 2018|Personal Development|

Shortly after high school graduation (many moons ago), I moved from my hometown in Omaha, Nebraska to the “Wild West.” I was hypnotized by the towering mountains, the “lost” lakes, and the ever-steady pace of the Cowboy way. I rushed out to register for college courses, join clubs, find a job, meet new people, and [...]
