I feel like I've been a career cat, living many fascinating professional paths from journalist and PR exec to digital marketing agency leader to word-of-mouth-advocate. And my favorite, as co-founder of the Rebels at Work movement.
It's been thrilling, except for those frustrating and sometimes dark transition times.
You know, those periods when you know it's time to grow into something new but you get stuck. Doubting whether it's possible. Worrying if you might be making the wrong decision. Wishing that there was a fairy godmother who might just swoop in and magically take you from now to the perfect tomorrow.
From these stuck periods, interviewing hundreds of courageous leaders, and delving deep into positive psychology and resilience research, I've learned there ARE ways to more quickly go from "it's time to move" to "Yes, I'm loving in this new role/world. Hallelujah."
To guide people in getting from now to next, I'm hosting an intimate, two-day leadership retreat -- Courage Camp -- at the beautiful Mt. Hope Farm in Bristol, RI on August 16 and 17.
My fellow camp leaders are the wonderful Daniel Doucette and Jillian Reilly, extraordinary organizational development and leadership coaches.
Courage Camp Promise
We'll be gathering in a historic Adirondack lodge at the water's edge (No PowerPoints!!), and guiding people through exercises, talks and conversations so that they are able to:
- Reflect on their unique strengths, pattern of success and innate wisdom.
- Get clear on their true aspirations and acknowledge what they need to let go of.
- Gain an understanding of how to use discomfort and uncertainty in productive ways.
- Learn practices and habits that develop the necessary courage and resiliency to step into new possibilities.
If you know anyone who might benefit from this special program, I would appreciate you forwarding this email onto them. No one should be stuck in limbo too long.
And if you're in that place where "More" or "Different" are calling you, please consider joining us.
