Paddle Toward Your Vision

0

By Jalene Case,

Our responsibilities can toss us around like we’re rafting through white-water rapids without a paddle. Our direction feels like it’s utterly controlled by the river. This is how it can feel when we don’t have a clear vision and goals guiding us to where we want to go.

The Power of Coming Back to Your Foundation

emotional intelligence, values, creating your life

By Jalene Case

Experiencing imbalance and balance is part of living. How might we lead ourselves from chaos to order? Carl Jung said, “In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” There’s a new way forward waiting for you to discover it. Before making direction-changing decisions, check the integrity of your foundation. Who are you now?

Drop Your Armor to Get What You Want

By Jalene Case

What would it look like to drop the armor you’ve been using to defend yourself? What are you protecting yourself from? I believe we want to shield our soul’s desires because we don’t want to risk injuring them. The crazy thing is that when we keep them locked up in a tower with the draw bridge lifted, we block out fulfillment, accomplishment, and joy.

Two Activities for Working Remotely

By Trish Candler

For those normally working in an office setting, you may be working remotely, somewhere other than a designated office building setting. Your remote location may be full of different people these days. Perhaps it’s one or many children in your “new office” or maybe a partner, or perhaps you’re completely alone, actually remote-remote.

Using ‘sheltering in place’ as an opportunity for growth

Ron Price, Idaho Business Review, April 2020

I have been traveling as an integral part of my career as a business consultant over the last 30 years, working in 15 countries as well as all 50 of the United States. In 2019, I decided it was time to slow down the amount of travel I did for business, largely because of my advancing age and in deference to my wife of 44 years. Now, as I engage the fourth week of “shelter in place,” I am experiencing a sustained period at home unlike anything ever before. And I suspect you are experiencing something unique as well.

Greatness Starts with Optimism

When I was working in the marketing department of The San Diego Union-Tribune, a job I loved from the moment I stepped in and sparked a love for hiring intelligence, I used to sign my name with a smiley face.

Every memo, email or handwritten thank you note, I always signed:

Thanks,

Your Body as a Decision-Making Power Tool

1

By Jalene Case

Plugging into our bodies’ way of communicating is like using a decision-making power tool. It quickly drills to the core. Whether we’re struggling to make tiny, seemingly inconsequential choices or gigantic, clearly life-changing decisions, our bodies know the answer first.

It’s easy to rush through life without taking time to notice our physical sensations. In fact we often try to actively ignore our bodies by not listening to their plea for sleep, urge to move, or hunger for good food. Feel familiar?

10 Ways Women Can Grow Their Influence at Work

By Stacy Ennis, SmartBrief.com, September 2019

As women, we have experienced great strides in the past few decades. But still, we’re statistically at a disadvantage: only one in five senior leaders are women, and only one in twenty-five are women of color. A staggering 93.4 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are men, and only one is a woman of color. 


Those numbers might not be shocking to you—many of us know them by heart. But they are revealing.
