On Social Change in Ireland, “We’ll get there…”

February 4, 2018 0 Comments

In 2012, I closed a TEDxBelfastWomen talk with “We’ll get there”. In 2018, I find we may actually be ‘there’. It referenced my call to throw off the adaptive behaviours common to many on this island – our silence, passivity, self deprecation and shaming ways, in order to take our place on a global stage.

Nothing changes until we do!

January 30, 2018 0 Comments

In a recent LinkedIn article, Ready for a Change? – I made the case for choosing change. On one level it’s selfish – I work with people and small businesses when they’re ready for a change. On another level it’s in service to those clients, neighbours and friends who require change in their wider worlds. […]

A Collage, A Vision Board & Action…

December 22, 2017 0 Comments

“It works if you work it” Simple, tried and true – it’s an adage heard often in 12 Step fellowships. So what is a “Vision Board”? It’s a tool for creating authentic outcomes in our own, ideal life. And yes, they work. This Huffington Post article got my attention in early 2015: “The Reason Vision […]

On Echoing Irish Voices Congruent with Irish Values…

November 29, 2017 0 Comments

My hope/wish/prayer for 2018 is that Ireland will be a safe place for a #Whistleblower and an increasingly unsafe place for politicians who take cover with “it’s what’s legal” vs. “it’s what is ethical, proactive and kind”. A government that is far more congruent with Irish values. To create that Ireland, we need to find […]

Embracing Uncertainty, the space in-between

June 15, 2017 0 Comments

Navigating the space in between what was, what is, and what will be, can be daunting. Yet, in those days, weeks, months or years, we conceive and create our future. “Choose to live in the present moment” is fine advice. Living mindfully, embracing self-care and a sense of prosperity requires skill building and support. But where […]

Personal Change Management; the tools

June 13, 2017 0 Comments

A post entitled, Embracing Uncertainty, suggested an alternative description of the practices often recommended to support resilience. It has become clear that the language helping professionals use, is often one of the most significant obstacles to supporting significant life and career change. So, if you’ve embraced mindfulness, a daily meditation practice or have already found your way into a supportive recovery community […]

Thank you to Alan Carson for suggestion my attendance and to Stephen Gough for organising “The State of the Union; Beyond 2021” event in East Belfast this week. The impression I left with was that we are all aching for great leadership. This is the first of two posts I will offer on my insights from […]

Mother’s Day, Martin & Me

March 26, 2017 0 Comments

“If you want to understand any woman you must first ask about her mother and listen carefully. Stories about food show a strong connection. Wistful silences demonstrate unfinished business. The more a daughter knows the details of her mother’s life – without flinching or whining – the stronger the daughter.” Anita Diamont Mothering, all parenting […]

Why Write? “…it is better to speak”

October 5, 2016 0 Comments

Per Audre Lorde It is summed up beautifully by the fact that in an African naming ceremony she took the name Gamba Adisa, which means “Warrior: She Who Makes Her Meaning Known“.  What I leave behind has a life of its own…I’ve said this about poetry; I’ve said it about children. Well, in a sense I’m saying […]
