I have now built a library of publications as a Forbes Coaches Council member. This includes both full-length articles and brief insights as a member of various panels. All are intended to provide insights and support to change practitioners as well as those responsible for leading and managing change.
This piece provides a framework of the change journey, using Joseph Campbell’s “Hero’s Journey” as a metaphor. It describes five distinct, but inter-dependent phases: creating the change story, preparing for the journey, planning for the journey, taking the journey, and living the new reality. 25 pages.
Presence During Change
When our outdated ways of thinking are triggered, our bodies, our minds, perhaps our hearts, and/or our mouths respond in ways that are quite literally neurologically programmed in us. If we want to change old patterns we need to be conscious of the triggers, and then intentionally intervene before the response kicks in. This requires us to be present the moment the trigger is fired. This piece suggests ways to cultivate mental, physical, and emotional presence while you consciously develop new patterns of thinking.
