    A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of attending the Wisdom 2.0 conference.  Wow!  What a powerful 4 days of thought leaders brought together around a common purpose and interest:  To explore how we can live with mindfulness, wisdom and compassion in the technological age.  I have attended Wisdom 2.0 for the past 3 years and yet this year seemed like a tipping point.  From a sheer numbers standpoint, the conference grew from 600-1700 which to me suggests the continued growing importance that people in organizations see in approaching business and leadership in

    Proactively Design Your Career Path Career Resolutions:  What’s on your list? by Adriana Trevino, Kraft Your Success Partner   The beginning of a new year is often a time when people reflect on the past year and make one or multiple resolutions.  Some familiar themes are related to health such as exercising more (I have to wake-up at what time to work out…4:30 a.m now?!), losing weight (ugh, still?!), or moderating the consumption of our favorite indulgences such as chocolate, beer, wine, or sugary lattes (Booooooo!).  Some people have elected more creative solutions such as

    Last week I had a meeting with a client who is challenged with something that many of us have in the current work environment:  difficult time focusing and getting all the work done.  Our development plan is to helping her with focus, clarity and simplicity in her approach to her performance, career goals and aspirations. One of the methods that I suggest, and have also used personally, is to work in 90 minute intervals.  This is something that I learned from a great book “The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working” by Tony Schwartz.The next day

    A couple of weeks ago I had the honor of speaking on behalf of the Professional Business Women of California (PBWC) on the subject of “Maximizing Productivity – Identifying What’s Really Important to You and Creating the Time and Space to Make it Happen” To my amazement and honor, nearly 1,400 people showed up! Earlier this week I sat down to focus on the first essential part:  “Identifying What’s Really Important to You”.  As I was thinking about how I work with clients and teams to help define what’s important to them, I got a

    I’ve been doing a lot of speaking and training on the topic of “Maximizing Your Productivity” (for our upcoming webinar click here). To Kraft Your Success,  this means starting from a place of identifying what you really want and then creating the time and space to make it happen. I love it when someone approaches me after this session and is inspired to incorporate the session’s work into their lives and I can tell that they are more likely than others to make it happen. What sets them apart?  They have clearly defined what they

    It’s weeks like these when I simply love what I do.  I get to help people find their dream work! Last week my client arrived “not wanting to look for a job” and in the  middle of our work she realized it was because she wanted to start her own business.  Our one hour meeting turned into a 2 hour brainstorming session which I was thrilled to extend because she was on FIRE with energy.  She walked out with a framework for an idea and the beginning of an action plan to begin investigating it

  • More engagement at work…what are you waiting for?

    by • on May 27, 10 • in Career, Leadership, Professional Development • with No Comments

    The recent WSJ.com article “More Workers Start to Quit” states that “in February the number of employees voluntarily quitting surpassed the number being fired or discharged for the first time since October 2008, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.” The article also indicates that the number of employees quitting could continue to grow in the coming months.   Apparently, people were waiting to see more jobs show up as possibilities before they made a move.  Makes sense.  In fact, 60% of workers said they intended to leave their jobs when the market got better &#
