Creating Space for Gender Equality

We all react. I have surrounded myself with great, intelligent men. I consider them my peers, I value their insight and I rely on their counsel. Yet they frustrate me with their decisiveness and their different perspectives. I react. In turn, they react to my impatience and frustration – sometimes with avoidance, sometimes with frustration. Bottom line – we don’t maximize our effectiveness. Through my work with Logosynthesis, I have come to appreciate that the exercise is for me to … Read More

Strength. Connection through experience.

Strength is viewed as a sign of success. We aim to strengthen ourselves both individually and within organizations – and there is ample material to tell us how to achieve this. I think of strength as a matrix, with each experience representing a bond holding together individual points. The quality of these experiences impact the quality of the bonds and hence, the strength of the individual and the community or organization. As I collect thoughts for a 4-H post to … Read More

Beyond courage. Freedom.

I would like to write something profound today as I bring one phase of my career to a close and open the door to something new and unknown. The word that has been capturing my attention lately is ‘courage’. The ability to do something that frightens one. There are lots of quotes on courage from Nelson Mandela to Winston Churchill, with the encouragement to draw on our strength in an effort to overcome our failures and achieve success. As life happens, … Read More

Stances: Our Premier vs. Our Teachers

Tension leads to stances: As tension escalates on contract negotiations between the teachers union and the government, the public is left feeling very angry and confused. The situation is reactive and irrational. The latest straw to fuel another work-to-rule mandate was our premier’s ‘clarification’ that the teachers two ‘new’ days off were for marking and classroom preparation. So I view this as new material to apply and I have identified the importance of stances, defined as a way of thinking about something, especially … Read More

Overwhelmed! Let’s listen.

The teachers in Nova Scotia have been telling us they are overwhelmed and they want change! Their union has been negotiating with our government to come to an agreement to improve working conditions. In the interim, students, parents and taxpayers are not feeling their needs are being met. When it comes to educating our children and future leaders, we all have strong beliefs about what is required. I am offering my perspective based on what I have been hearing: Teachers are … Read More

Creative vs. reactive – at work.

We all react to everyday life events. Some reactions are beneficial to our success and others hold us back from achieving our goals. However I have come to recognize that even the reactions that are beneficial to an individual’s success can be damaging to the team. And reactions that are beneficial to the team, may hold an individual back. As leaders, parents and people of influence, what is needed to get the job done may be clear. The energy bound in … Read More

Create in the present, not react to your past.

Why do I believe that Logosynthesis® can benefit everyone? We can all benefit from having our energy available to create in the present rather than react to our past.

Feeling Stressed? Apply Logosynthesis.

In my daily routines, I get stressed and I interact with a lot of stressed individuals. I don’t work in health care.  I don’t work with illness.  I have a regular job and I am involved in my community.  I appreciate the great people that are involved in my life. I notice that some of our stress is individual and some is collective. I notice that we often react in manner that is a little more dramatic than what others can appreciate.  I notice that … Read More

When work is overwhelming.

I admit that my job can overwhelm me at times. I have been in the same position for the past 10+ years.  As the process in my role continually increases, I have difficulty keeping up with the workload.  I feel like I am playing ‘pop-a-mole’.  The faster I work, the further behind I get.  My computer doesn’t respond fast enough and new systems continue to add process.  I work to get everything under control but don’t feel like I am having success. It  is very easy … Read More
