A Box of Chocolates

There are lines in particular movies that are just iconic. They're lodged so far into our brains that when triggered even the actresses/actors voice, tone or intonation comes flooding back. Forest Gump's, 'Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get', definitely falls into that category. It's also one that was triggered for me last Friday morning as I stood in front of a group of Year 5 students ready to start a program day. I'm often asked how it is delivering the 'same' program many times within a week, term or year. Our L.E.A.D. with Courage: Stage 3 Leaders Program is our signature offering, therefore it is very popular within our client schools. I always re

Means, not an Ends

A few leadership reminders from the weekend: 1. Keep Showing Up On Saturday I had the opportunity to attend a Youth Forum on Racism. It was a great investment of time and energy, as I soaked up stories of lived experiences, new information and strategies to most effectively navigate this and other issues within our spheres of influence. But I almost didn't get there. We all experience busyness, potential distractions and choice. But showing up is our ongoing means for opening up pathways to practice, learning and growth. I'm so grateful I made the choice to go. 2. Listening as the heart of Leadership Listening involves not only hearing what's happening within or around us, but courageously s

The Intersection

School's back. Fourth term starts today and we're excited to again share in the learning and leadership journeys of the students and teachers who we'll work with. So much happens over the next couple of months within a school. Lots more learning of course. Bringing together student's growth and development through reporting. Celebration of all that's transpired this year. And planning for 'where to next'. That's why we're hoping both students and teachers enjoyed a refreshing break over the past two weeks before enthusiastically jumping back into the adventures that lie ahead. During the holidays one of my not so guilty pleasures is catching up on reading. I've always got books on the go, bu

It's In The Eyes

Holidays, got to love them! A chance to refresh, recharge and recalibrate. We kind of can't believe there's only one more term to go in this current school year. But we're really looking forward to again walking shoulder to shoulder with our client schools after the break. Bring on all the adventures, learning and growth that those ten weeks will hold. As I sit here reflecting on the last ten weeks it's a teacher's comment on one of our last program days that bubbles up first. You know how passionate we are about developing leadership potential, and we love when participants and teachers feel that too. Sharing a message we believe so deeply in has us feeling lit up as we facilitate. And it's

A B C's

(Image from - https://littletruthsstudio.com/collections/art-prints/products/abcs-of-life-art-print-1) I love opening messages from friends sharing something they've seen and think I should as well. Whether it's a video, quote or image, it always feels like a surprise gift as it's opened. My friends know me well, and I'm always so grateful for the opportunity to learn and be inspired by what's been shared. The image above came into my inbox just over a week ago, and its had me thinking ever since. Learning your A B C's is a universal adventure (or their equivalent within another language). It's challenging. It takes time. We make many mistakes. We start early within our journeys of potential
