Beyond this blog, I love to write, speak and lead small group discussions on the relationship between creativity, art and innovation, personal leadership development, and why living an authentic life matters. I’ve also been invited to share some of my own story and how my values and experiences have shaped my own world view and belief in the importance character and building a values-aligned culture — both in our individual lives and those organizations and communities we serve.
On March 8th, in celebration of International Women’s Day, I released my new book, Walking the Heart Path: Bite-Sized Bits of Wisdom on Living & Leading from the Inside Out, available for direct purchase via this blog, Amazon.com, and specialty retail stores.
This book is a compendium of original art and insights that touch on nine key themes that are central to living and leading a heart-aligned life: Finding Your Authentic Voice, The Art of Becoming, Dreaming in Full Bloom, Growing Strong, Navigating Change, Building Relationships, Living Your Values, Serving Above Self, and Leadership.
The perfect gift for those dreaming big dreams, stepping up into leadership, overcoming obstacles, and/or navigating change in their life, this beautiful, hope-filled book is sure to inspire.
