Speaking Topics


A timely, well chosen talk can sometimes make a world of difference in how we respond to our life. Sometimes people taste a topic in a brief presentation and wish to do more in-depth work; the seminars and retreats are designed to provide this opportunity for deeper work.

These presentations range from 30 minutes to four hours in length and include both presentation and interactive experiences for audience members. The premise underlying each talk is that we benefit from seeing our lives and leadership (and the challenges and opportunities in each) in a bigger light. Stepping back, we can often see things much more clearly.

Our Speaking Topics include:

Navigating the Dual Journey
Leadership and Organizational Transformation

Organizations cannot grow beyond the point where leaders have grown. Calls for greater collaboration and teamwork from leaders who still function as individuals in their silos are legendary. We each carry an assumption about ourself that makes moving our workforce and our lives forward harder than it needs to be. Once we see this dynamic, we can make necessary shifts if we choose. This talk is a short course on sharpening our leadership edge.

Wake Up Calls
Spirit Reminders About the Call to Partnership

Each day is full of reminders from our Spirit partners that we are not here alone and that, in fact, there is much assistance available for any challenge we face. The trouble is we:

  • Are too busy to pay attention,
  • We don't know where and how to look, and/or
  • We persist in believing we must buy a Formal Religion Package (FRP) to benefit from a sacred partnership freely available to us all...with or without the FRP!

Find out how to see more clearly today's wake up calls and live, lead and work more fully as a result.
