I’m combining here my decades of experience as a high performer’s Career and Executive Coach with kindness based mindfulness practice – the two things I know truly help women and men live a satisfying life.

Loving-Kindness Works is dedicated to supporting you to be that confident yet kind, effective leader in your own life.

Wouldn’t you like to connect on a deeper level of authenticity and joy with your co-workers, boss, kids, spouse, friends and community? This level of engagement offers more satisfaction and meaning… something so many are hungering for.

Originating from the 2600 Buddhist metta practice, Loving-Kindness Practice is a meditation which encourages the mind towards compassion for oneself and others. This practice has positively impacted me – transformed me. And I know it can transform you. This compassion practice has been studied at Stanford University, Harvard Medical School and many others, to understand why this practice helps millions to overcome anxiety and depression which are now considered at epidemic levels in the U.S.

People who regularly practice Loving-Kindness meditation report

  • an increased ability to hold a bigger perspective when faced with challenging situations

  • feeling more generous, open-hearted, able to focus on another person during conversations and meetings

  • they recover from emotional upsets more quickly

  • the ability to repair relationship rifts more swiftly

  • the ability to feel more at ease in their daily lives

 

 
 

The world needs your power!

 
 

 
 

After years of teaching both career transition classes, and mindful awareness practice classes, I realized the real magic is when these two seemingly separate topics come together.

Job and career change is stressful and often brings up our deepest insecurities… something my clients and I work through every day! As I started bringing the practices of mindful awareness and loving-kindness into my classes, participants could feel new, genuine shifts happening. It turns out when you learn to connect deeply to hear what’s true for you or others, and take actions that are true to you -- you bring your aliveness into everything you do!  Work, relationships, opportunities of all sorts start to show up! Your real power shows up, and you and the rest of the world needs that power! 

That’s why I’m offering Sustainable Confidence for women who won’t sacrifice kindness for power.

 

Even the most ‘quiet’ ‘soft’ woman can exhibit and own a profoundly effective personal power with this training.

I’ve worked with too many women clients who struggled with not feeling confident, not showing up as strong, and who weren’t comfortable speaking up or taking actions that might rock the boat. These are lovely, kind women didn’t know how to shift the power axis in their environment at work or at home. They didn’t want to lose their kind way of being, or the trust of those who know them as that. And I don’t want them, or you, to lose that kindness. In fact, we want to bring that quality forward in a whole new way.

No more hiding out, being the nice girl who gives her power, her ground, her generosity away.

Instead, bring your kind heartedness into everything you do, but in a whole new way to get what you really want without bitching or bullying.

How does Loving Kindness lead to confidence?

Your increased awareness and loving-kindness perspective helps you

  • Recognize and take new actions 

  • Create a new self-talk so you can get out of your way to take action

  • Shift long held assumptions about you - and others - which changes how others relate to you

  • Magnetize job opportunities, promotions, romantic possibilities

  • Deepen your communication and connection with your kids and other loved ones 

  • Open up to live more authentically, from a grounded place - to be your genuine self without fear or distrust 

  • To know that Relaxation + Action = Confidence

 Who is this class for?

Women who

  • feel the frustration of working with bullies and who don’t want to join that team! 

  • attempt to speak up but for one reason or another their voice doesn’t impact others to get what they want…at work, at home, in volunteer organizations. 

  • aren’t getting the traction they truly want who experience a cycle of feeling invisible so they stop trying to show up.

  • feel more kind-hearted than aggressive, who would rather let others behave badly then take a stand against that behavior because they don’t know how to get what they really want, or don’t like confrontation – period.

 

Does this sound like you?

If so, you are NOT alone! In fact, you’re in really good company. 

Maybe you feel that standing up to a boss or a co-worker is akin to taking on the whole organizational culture you work in and that’s just overwhelming… It’s simply easier to try to ignore it, or look for another job. 

Maybe you feel like your kids or your husband override your requests and you feel defeated and exhausted from trying to get what you want.

What I know from my own experience is that when you learn to approach your life and work from a Loving-Kindness perspective you’ll not only find new ways to connect to yourself, you’ll start to excel and succeed, and you’ll enjoy the success more fully, with more joy.

How many of us are not present to even accepting our own joys, wins, and meaningful accomplishments?  Why is that? 

And the very cool thing is you’ll enjoy more confidence, more pleasure, feel more relaxed and yet effective. That’s the powerful paradox – when you’re more open and available to yourself and others, you can take actions that are important to your success, to reaching the goals you set for yourself. un  You’ll enjoy more presence, mastery and joy. I know because that’s what’s happened for me.

As a career coach who started working with clients when the coaching industry was still young, I’ve worked with thousands of people at all levels and life stages for the past 28+ years. What I’ve found is that my clients who are in transition seeking greater focus, healthy ways to relax, and most importantly, ways to let go of the subtle – or not so subtle - destructive thought patterns that hold them back from living and working into their full, dynamic potential.
