Have you ever sat through a meeting where only one or two people did all the talking? Or, have you ever taken a class where a few individuals dominated all the class discussion?

Want to unleash inspiration? Here’s how.

A car needs fuel to drive. A plant needs water and sun to grow. A sailboat needs wind to sail. And people working to make a difference (that's you!) need inspiration to thrive.

What Keeps You Going?

Our work is too important to give up. Yet, even for the most committed, it can be hard to keep going.  Systems change, budgets adjust, new leadership teams are put into place, and over time we might find ourselves simply complying with what is happening, rather than dreaming, building, and working for the ideals and [...]

It’s Up To Us!

I have this dream that all educators (social workers, health care professionals, innovators, spirital leaders, etc) be provided with the time to sit and reflect on who they are and what their work is about.  In our daily business, it is easy to loose our way and forget who we are and what we truly [...]
