The difference between caring and caring enough to do something
Organizations and the people who run them care. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be gainfully employed. But care doesn’t translate into action. Often we fall off track, get caught in red tape, and give into the status quo and learned helplessness.I help organizations tackle their strategies and practices from a place of caring and understanding that goes beyond what frameworks alone can do. To truly change the behavior of the organization we have to change the people within it and that takes more than just implementing a framework. It takes caring, invitation, inclusivity to implement action, and supportive interaction each step of the journey. Let’s transition together! GET STARTED NOW

Being replaceable in work may not seem like a good thing. But I definitely think it can be. Those who disagree tend to think about replaceability in a negative sense. Who wants to think there is someone else out there that can do your job as well (or better) than you? A lot of this comes from a scarcity mindset: that there are only a set number of jobs and once they are taken that’s it. But new jobs are created all the time as long as there is a case that demands it.Read more
