Learn to Do No Harm—to your people, processes, OR profits
Learn how to run a trauma-free business that helps your people, your processes, and your profits.
Whether you know it or not, trauma impacts your business and relationships every day.
You might have unchecked trauma running in your business if:
- You find yourself deferring to others to avoid conflict—despite this being YOUR business—so you struggle to grow in ways that feel in integrity.
- Things take longer to get done because you don’t trust your employees; you micro-manage or take tasks back because you’re a perfectionist, and so scaling your business and serving more people feels impossible.
- You have consistently poor boundaries with staff, your calendar, your customers, and your money, which makes it feel like the business is running you instead of you running it.
When you become trauma-informed, you will see benefits in your own business—through better relationships with your team, smoother processes, and higher profits—as well as benefits for the clients you serve.

Leadership in Tough Times Requires More Self-Care
Leadership, during the best of times, requires intentional and consistent self-care so that you can manage your energy for yourself and your team.
The energy you bring to work each day directly impacts your team’s productivity, collaboration, and joy.
Self-care becomes even more critical during challenging times because leadership requires more empathy for your team so they can experience the excellence they deserve.

Join Agata Pawlak & James Tucker from Cruz Creative Digital and me for a live and interactive conversation on November 19th at noon ET what social media engagement really is and why it’s so important for building your brand online.
Best Practices for How to Connect with Your Audience on Video
While many things have changed about the way we meet, network, and speak ‘from the stage’ due to COVID, much has stayed the same. Join public speaking coach Leora Dowling, and me for a conversation about Best Practices for How to Connect with Your Audience.
Negotiation: We Negotiate Things, Not Our Value as a Person
Negotiation is not combat: Negotiation is a conversation about a thing.
Emotions and the feeling that negotiation is a personal attack derails our ability to actively listen, pause, and respond. If you are human, you are affected by bias and emotions. We all are.
And another secret…none of us are “rational.” So, unless you are Spock from the planet Vulcan, emotions can divert your attention and prevent you from making good decisions in negotiation.
There are plenty of people who negotiate as part of their jobs who appear competent because they get through it but are chained to a tit for tat style of negotiation.
Surviving negotiations does not competency make. Many of those hate conflict and found a way to survive it, so why learn more? Why fix it if it ain’t broke? Those who negotiate well will tell you that the learning never stops.
Selling in a Virtual World
The way we conduct sales in person has changed. We’re not able to meet with our clients at networking events, for coffee, lunch, or tradeshows.
The new platform for meeting with clients “face to face” is to set up meetings virtually on Zoom Meetings or Google Meets.
So, how do you sell in a virtual world? Join Sales Coach & Consultant, Ronda Berns, and me for a conversation about how to have an interactive conversation so you too can start selling effectively online in a virtual world with professionalism, confidence, and build trust to win clients.
The Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs of Team-Building and Company Culture
Has your company culture been impacted due to the challenges presented from managing during COVID?
Is the culture what you want?
Do you know what that looks like?
Join Jen Fleckenstein, co-owner of Clear Water Filtration, and me for a conversation about building a company culture that brings people together while navigating challenging times.
Jen and her brother, Steve, joined forces in 2015 to take on the company’s ownership from their Father, which, under his leadership, had its own unique company culture. They had to transition from his management style to their own and work towards creating their identity in the industry and with their existing and future employees.
The Ripple Effect: How to Enhance Relationships Without Causing Tidal Waves
How we behave and communicate, and what motivates us can impact relationships with others positively or negatively, whether 1:1 or as part of a team.
Not understanding individual styles and motivations often is a source of that conflict. To understand our relationships with others, we must first understand ourselves.
Join Leadership & Team Development Consultant Janis Cooper and me for a conversation about how understanding your communication style allows you to adapt to the styles of others, which results in better collaboration, increased influence, and less conflict.
Burnout in the time of Corona: Why We’re Losing Our “Bleep,” and What We Can Do About It
Has burnout or lack of fulfillment become an everyday norm for you in your business or career?
The rates of professional burnout were increasing even before the pandemic hit, and the stressors of 2020 are making things worse.
There’s so much that feels out of our control. What would be possible if you approached this time as an opportunity to redefine what professional and personal success look like to you?
Join Executive and Personal Strategy Coach, Christine O’Neill, and me for a conversation on, “Burnout in the time of Corona: Why we’re losing our “bleep” and what we can do about it.”
Character: Setting the Example as a Person and a Team
Join retired Navy SEAL and Teamwork Expert, Bill Atkinson, and me for a conversation about the Whole Person Concept & SEAL Ethos and habits of successful people.
