In our last session we talked about the very real need we all have (at times) to rest, pause, reflect, and reset our focus.

It should be expected that each of us will experience multiple transitions and major life-changes over the course of time. My hope is to help you learn how to strategically and effectively navigate transition and set yourself up for success d
I've been sharing about transition, which happens to be one of my favorite topics to explore, primarily because of my own personal journey and what I've learned about change.
We've unpacked discontent and disconnect, and today we're on to the
In every season of transition, the goal is to move from what is known to something fresh, new, more. Last week I shared how discontent, the first stage of transition, does not work against you, but rather works for you in moving to your next l
