GET EXCITED!! We have a brand new podcast coming with YOU and your project ideas in mind. Welcome to Joyful Projects, where we will explore the Secret to Real Excellence in transforming our ideas into reality. I’ve spent many years figuring out what it really means to enable joy in work…and I want to share my insights.
We empower leaders like you to claim their goal-achieving potential and build on the very purpose of what it means to be human. We equip leaders to lead those around the table to success (not to the documents, spreadhseets, or checklists). This human-centered leadership is the critical element to project success (on-time and on-budget).
I appreciate that you aren’t like other consultants and come in to sell your solution. You help my team develop a solution that works best for us. You do what I need, without all the overhead.
The Bridge of Joy in the COVID Era
BRIDGING TO THE FUTURE
Lots of us are talking about when life returns to normal, or that this is “the new normal.” There is a bit of danger when we as leaders make a promise about a return to normal. The best selling management texts are all about change… not about being able to revert back to what our team calls ‘normal’.
COMING OUT OF LOCKDOWN
We all learned things through this COVID-19 lockdown time. As many are starting to transition back to the “new normal,” we leaders are well served to remember what we gained, individually and with our teams. Let’s not be in such a rush. Write down the good, the growth, the victories, the challenges. You only truly prove that you know something when you can write it down. Reflect, reflect, reflect.
GRATITUDE FOR WEEDS
We may be told to stay home during this time of quarantine, but we’re encouraged to get some fresh air! Join eNthusaProve’s Paul with some ideas about what you may be calling “weeds”. You may have some nutritious assets happily growing, saving you a trip to the grocer. In times like this, we have been reconsidering what really is valuable, and these ‘weeds’ are a good example, in more ways than one. So, grab your gloves… you’re going to need them when Paul takes you to experience the stinging nettles!

This is the season of a new year and the blessings of the past. Thank you to those who've expressed their feelings about enabling joy. My favorite hymn this time of the year is Joy To The World. Let's connect in the New Year and I hope you'll allow me to help you...
I had such fun observing an awesome example of enabling joy in work with a visit to a local volunteer fire company with a preschool group. There were 18 kids there (and us moms) to see this awesome new fire truck...it was so fun! What struck me from a joy in work...
What's The Story? I really enjoy how the art of storytelling speaks to me personally and professionally. I really got a kick out of the Lancaster Story Slam... the concept, the challenges of telling a true story using a theme with a five-minute timeframe, and the...
