With this month’s trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, reflections about the past year’s events involving George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Christian Cooper, and Jacob Blake are stirring new support for racial justice and equality. Organizations and CPA firms have been making public declarations, posting in social media and funding [...]

Thank You For 8 Great Years!

2021-03-29T16:30:29-05:00March 25th, 2021|Inspired Ideas Blog|

My last blog post. It’s bittersweet to write and a little surreal. After 8 wonderful years, I am leaving my role at ConvergenceCoaching. Other than continuing to coach my participants in the 2020-2021 Spring TLP until their June graduation, beginning April 1st, I am making a big change in my life and career by taking [...]

Coaching Requires Compassion

2021-03-17T12:48:19-05:00March 17th, 2021|Inspired Ideas Blog, Personal Development|

Compassion isn’t an emotion that comes naturally to me. On the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Personality Assessment, I’m an ISTJ, and it’s those last two letters that get in my way. TJ’s are rational and logical versus emotional. We prefer to address problems objectively using data – create a pros and cons list, compare the [...]

Harness Your Will to be Well

2021-03-05T10:16:17-06:00March 5th, 2021|Inspired Ideas Blog, Personal Development|

It’s that time again… Busy season. Days and weeks are long, schedules are hectic, and stress is high for many. During this period, you may struggle to meet life’s basic requirements, let alone indulging in the “luxuries” of mental and physical health, self-care, or relationships. Even so, prioritizing your wellness is more important now than [...]

You Are Resilient!

2021-02-25T15:57:18-06:00February 25th, 2021|COVID-19, Inspired Ideas Blog, Personal Development|

I am tired. And you may be, too. Tired of the sickness, death and overall anxiousness from the pandemic. Tired of sheltering in place and putting much of our lives on hold. Tired of winter – even our poor southern friends! Tired from busy season and the thought of potentially pushed deadlines. Tired of the [...]

Living Powerfully With COVID-19

2021-02-17T10:02:42-06:00February 17th, 2021|COVID-19, Inspired Ideas Blog, Personal Development|

For almost a year now, we have been living and working with the awareness of COVID-19 always in the background.  We have learned to manage our time, work, play, and absolutely everything in relationship to the presence of the virus in the air around us.  We never expected it to affect us as powerfully as [...]

Our True Wealth is Our Health

2021-02-10T09:31:20-06:00February 10th, 2021|COVID-19, Inspired Ideas Blog, Personal Development|

This past year, there’s been a silent assailant at work against our health and well-being. The COVID-19 virus has threatened to make us either mildly or seriously ill. The risk of infection has threatened the livelihoods of many and has tabled all group activities, including fitness, too. It has placed a distance between us, our [...]

Administrators are People, Too!

2021-02-03T15:21:15-06:00February 3rd, 2021|COVID-19, HR/Organizational Development, Inspired Ideas Blog, Remote Work / ATAWW, Web/Tech|

Ok, I have to come clean. I have been triangulating and think it is time we had an honest conversation about remote work and your administrative team. During the pandemic, firms moved their people to remote work but in many cases, remote work applied to “everyone but the admin team.” And, because I am a [...]
