"We wouldn’t complain about anything if we didn’t care about something", wrote Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey in How the Way We Talk Can Change the Way We Work. The real question is – what are you committed to?

Self leadership is living life on purpose with clarity, conviction and vision. When we’re leading our lives deliberately, we move out of victim consciousness. Life isn’t happening to us; it is happening for us – even when we’re faced with our greatest challenges. 

Self leadership is a daily practice that can be learned by anyone. We learn to engage life (and work) with curiosity, compassion and calmness. Of course, we’ll still be triggered from time to time and default to our survival strategies, but we don’t have to live there.

Coaching Development Peer Groups


Starting October 6th, I'll be offering a 5-session group coaching course to guide individuals in creating a personal blueprint for practicing self leadership in their daily lives. Each 75-minute session guides participants in answerong one of the five key questions above.

Course participants will:


  • create a new narrative for their life

  • know their personal core values and how to lead from them

  • understand how to manage the hidden drivers of their behavior

  • begin developing their gifts (natural abilities)

  • have a personal vision to live into

Gift Development Peer Groups

Each of us came into the world with unique abilities that we can in turn share in service to others. Many people aren't aware of their natural gifts because they come so naturally. Others may have exiled their gifts because they were not invited or acknowledged early in life - or worse, they were discouraged and possibly even punished for having them. When we're not offering out gifts, we're out of balance with the rhythm of giving and receiving in our lives. I invite you to begin exploring what your gifts are and how they may be expressed in your world -- whether that's in your community, in your workplace.

The outcome of working with Brian to discover my gifts has been nothing short of stunning. As well as I thought I knew myself, he saw things I would not have been able to see on my own. It was a life-changing experience that has yielded transformative results.      -Joan Shafer
