Integrating Passion into Work Life

“I walk around the room and hear someone say, ‘I can’t do this I don’t like it,’” artist Kimberly Adams Tremper said as she described a typical classroom of novice art students. “Some students jump right in and others have to have specific detail nailed or they can’t move forward. This makes me think of how in a work setting they would react if something landed in their lap.” Switching between the art room and the board room is natural for Seasoned Leader Kimberly Adams Tremper, in addition to being an artist she has worked in leadership positions in corporate retail for over 30 years. “When people are painting and self-sabotaging, saying - "I can’t do this" I say, ‘you can’t make a mistake it is just paint and a canvas.’ READ MORE

Fall - a season of reflection and integration
Debbie and I both have September birthdays – one day apart just at the autumnal equinox when day and night are exactly equal in length – which prompts both of us to reflect on what has been learned in previous seasons into a path forward.

Practicing Grace Makes the World Better
