Mindful Career & Leadership Conversations

Welcome to Summer!

We have just returned from a 2 week family vacation in Portugal! The adventures were endless! Often the internet was not functioning which reminded my husband and I to remain disconnected and savour every moment! The benefits of a family vacation are clear. “We know that taking a break is extremely good for one’s mental health,” says Susan Krauss Whitbourne, an adjunct professor of gerontology at the University of Massachusetts Boston, who frequently writes about the benefits of vacation. “It puts you in a different frame of mind, gets you out of your standard patterns and can give you time with family.” The family memories we have to savour from our recent trip to Portugal are priceless! For us business leaders “it’s vital to take time to renew, re-energize, refocus, and return to work with a heightened sense of clarity, contentment, and purpose.”

Shelley Cox, an Executive Career and Leadership Coach, creates mindful spaces for Emerging Leaders to tap into their radical self-awareness, crafting authentic career and leadership brands they love, so they EMERGE STRONG, resilient and energized with an entrepreneurial mindset to serve with passion.

Is Your “Quacking Duck” Stealing Your Brain?!!?

In a recent meeting a leader mentioned a difficult situation with another leader. The purpose of this meeting was to share highlights of a recent successful project, but her natural instinct was to begin the interaction with a negative comment that set the tone for the entire meeting


“Your story and resiliency is something that a lot of women can relate to. I certainly do. I love the Calm Power methodology and how this helps to build your “why” to move forward with your goals. Leaders who are tired of the command and control world who want to build a business-life with a more nurturing and compassionate approach will find your coaching and your programs extremely valuable!”


Lets keep in touch
