Insights & Observations

 Welcome! Note the tabs on top -- The "Working Women" section offers services and ideas to help us summon our creativity and strength in all phases of our careers.  In the "Ponder That" section I comment on current news items and emerging trends.  In the "Tips" section I offer workplace advice and reminders. "About Me" is just that. "Mid LIFE Matters" has video preview clips from my public tv show.   

 

Speaker on Women's Wisdom

Please consider me for keynote/panel presentations & workshops! Drawing on research for my book, 55+ Unite! Welcome All Wise Working Women, as well as hosting a community TV show, "Mid LIFE Matters" -- I offer women a tonic for tackling new challenges.

E-Book Webinars & Workshops

Thank you to Joan Lahti, Ph.D., of Get To The Point Books for sponsoring a 45-minute webinar on my e-book, Are Your Star Performers Packing Their Bags?  How to Persuade Them to Stay.  Participants from across the country (and globe) reflected on their own retention tactics, and saw how to navigate this user-friendly workbook approach.   I offer similar sessions -- in person, online, or using blended technology, for any size group.  Contact Joan for a reference:

Color!

  

 

Daring to act silly can brush off our mental cobwebs.  But by the time we are 'all grown up' we often resist looking like a novice.  The old saying, 'get out of the rut', applies to current brain research about the value of trying something new, shaking up the old synapses. 

Coloring books are associated with childhood, but are now resurfacing as a way to relax and get into a creative flow.  Johanna Basford was amazed that her intricate pen-and-ink drawings are a huge seller to adults who love to color!  In a NYT article, "Grown-Ups Get Out Their Crayons" (by Alexandra Alter, Business Day, 3/30/15), we learn about an 'untapped market' of adults looking to have fun with color.

When my daughter was 4, she told me "I am only an old baby."  Looks like she was wise beyond her years!

Late Blooming?

  

Older brains are believed to excel in certain areas:  Practice wisdom comes from much experience; there is less drama on a daily basis (emotional regularity); we tend to look longer at the sunny side of the street; we know when to zig, and when to zag.  A recent study offers another possibility:  While processing speed declines with age, maybe an increased ability to reading other people's moods gives us a bump in emotional intelligence.  Being perceptive about others can help with decision-making, forging relationships, and generally avoiding toxic situations.  All things to cheer about.  Check out the NYT article, "Older Really Can Mean Wiser" by Bendict Carey (Mind section)  3/17/15.

What's Your Hurry?

  

Chances are that when you are feeling  late, late, late, for a very important date (or deadline), you can decrease your anxiety. Research says ... breathe deeply; reduce multitasking, and reframe your anxiety as excitement.  In other words, a lot of perceived goal conflict is in our heads, and we actually have more time than we think.  Don't be the harried rabbit.  (Source:  NYT article, "How We Find More Time" by Ann North, Op-Talk, 3/8/15)

Rethink Your Story

  

 

Writing about yourself can help you make desired changes.  Seems we develop personal narratives that, when revisited, can redirect our paths.  Studies show that expressive writing can cause us to reconsider self-defeating beliefs and to confront what may be false excuses for not achieving our goals.  These "writing interventions" are another testimony to the 'power of the pen.'  So take out your red pen and edit your story!  (Source:  "Writing Your Way to Happiness" by Tara Parker-Pope, the Well section of the NYT, 1/20/15)
