She stands in her power
As a truth-teller
Her inner world
Spilling over as she exudes
Calm, energy, inspiration
The world needs her
And all she brings

I had a podcast interview yesterday and anytime I have the opportunity to talk about what I’m up to, it energizes me!
I love talking about the impact of energy on leaders and the ripple effect that occurs when someone shifts and chooses to show up differently.
I love talking about poetry and how it provides a healing balm and invitation to trust our inner knowing amidst an often stark landscape of chaos and change.
I love talking about authenticity – following your weird – and how life-changing it can be to explore and embrace who we naturally are, despite living in a world that often values conformity.
These topics light me up! And as Joseph Campbell said, the world needs people who have come alive.
And even more importantly, this energy makes me think of the amazing leaders I know who are also doing the work for a better world in their own ways.
My friends, my collaborators, my sources of inspiration for their willingness to stand in their truth.
Fellow leaders, what’s lighting YOU up today?
