The Art of Reinvention

It’s been 3 years since I started Positive Disruption and in that time there’s been a lot of reinvention. Like reinvention from my cushy corporate life to the nail-biting that can sometimes come along with starting up a business. There’s been any number of iterations on what is it that I really do, or don’t do – are you a consultant or a trainer, do you do coaching, or what?

Finally, in the last year it became crystal clear to me:  I am at my best helping client teams navigate the churning waters of transition.  Someone recently described me as a camp counselor for grown-ups and it’s an apt description – in a way. I am not afraid to walk through the crucible and help others feel safe going with me and in gentler waters, I guide the boat and sing the songs. A lot of what I do is help groups see the issues that may be holding them back and take them through the processes to tap into their wisdom and get them where they really want to go. Sometimes I have to coach, nudge, cajole, or handhold when I can see a team’s capability but they’re just a little afraid. Other times I throw in some butt-kicking or campfire stories as needed.

I love what I do and I’m grateful for where I’ve landed.  This business and life of mine continues to grow! There’s no way I could be doing any of this without the support of my family, awesome clients, great friends and colleagues, and the many of you who connect with me here and offer your support in more ways than I know how to describe. Thank you.
