Coprorate Services Testimonials

“The retreat was an outstanding success.  Sandi’s style of presentation and engagement was dynamic, enthusiastic and inclusive.  She took the time before the retreat to ensure the program content fully catered for our corporate needs.  Her obvious high skill level and subject matter expertise gave her the cognizance to develop and include content material to deliver a program that was exceptional.  Sandi’s willingness to share ideas and personal life experiences endeared her to all.  Participant feedback after the event is very encouraging and as a result I am working with Sandi to determine the scope and frequency of further programs for us.”

  • Work/Life Balance doesn't exist - and while we continue to strive to achieve it, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment.

    Why?

    The phrase itself suggests a couple things that are inherent in the problem:

  • Frankly, no. It's not possible - and we are causing ourselves untold frustration and disappointment while we keep trying to achieve it!
     
     
    Why do I say this?
     
    Well, think for a minute about the phrase itself - 
  • (WARNING: Your life as you know it is about to change)

     

    “How can I handle difficult people?”

    Answer – you can’t.

    “Wait – what? You mean I’m stuck with them in my life?”

    Answer – it all depends on how you look at it.

  • I recently attended a three-day women’s festival that I attended for the first time in 2016. It’s never the same the second, third or umpteenth time around is it? First of all, there’s that ‘first time newness’ that we can only get once. “Wow! Look at that!” “Goodness, that’s amazing!” And so on … because we are seeing things through fresh, first-time eyes.

    In our subsequent visits, while we look for that same magic, but logically know it will be different than our beloved ‘first-time’.  We then start to notice what’s not there that we liked the previous year(s), and lament “But I really liked that!”

    So this year, I decided to focus instead on what was new, different and intriguing. And that’s how I came across The Release Tree.

  • We’ve all heard these definitions …

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but the conquering of it.  (I’ve seen this attributed to Dan Millman)

    Courage is resistance to fear.  (Thanks Mark Twain)

    Courage is mastery of fear.  (Mark Twain again)

    What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.  (Kelly Clarkson made this line famous in her pop song)

    In other words, grit your teeth and move on regardless. Tough it out. Toughen up.

     

    A lot of people who know me say I’m one of the most tenacious, determined, “courageous” people they know. And I’ve always kind of liked this. I’m proud that I ‘hang in there’, dig deep and find my way through challenges.

    My father (bless you, dad) had a saying that went something like this: “The real measure of a person’s character is how they handle adversity.” And I liked this too – for most of my life.

    Whenever I was going through a tough time, I’d remember my dad’s words and think ‘keep going, Sandi – you’re developing character. People will admire you for the fact that you’ve made it through all this crap.’ And so I did keep going (though I’m not sure this really earned me brownie points in the admiration-from-other-people stakes).
