These are exciting times for employers who invest in their employees’ well-being. They see people coming to work happier, more energetic and motivated to perform.

When employees have the tools to create conscious and collaborative communication we all do better. Stress levels decrease within all levels of the organization. People are heard and understood. Employee retention increases. Engagement improves. When people are able to regulate their emotions they are less reactive, so they communicate without drama. Let’s say good-bye to power struggles, petty arguments, backstabbing, insubordination and other types of employee relationship issues that degrade the work environment.

For many years through my work with First Nations organizations, I learned an invaluable lesson about the power of authentic relationships and human connection: when community prioritizes relationship and connection it lays the foundation for everything else to take place.

I’m a parent to two children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, who have had significant and persistent behavioural and social interaction challenges from a very young age. As their challenges emerged, professionally, I began to delve further and further into learning about the factors that influence human behaviour and interpersonal communication, so that I could support my children in their challenges.

There is no question in my mind that, in order for people to have strong, healthy, collaborative interactions we must begin by developing our ability to interact with our communication partners receptively, rather than reactively. We’re all capable of building this skill and this is what informs and guides everything I do in my consulting and coaching practice, as well as my national speaking engagements.

At the core of communication challenges lies difficulty in at least one communicative partner to remain in a receptive state.  When we address that, everything else falls into place.

When I’m not taking to the stage, you will likely either find me outdoors, camping, hiking or skiing, teaching Essentrics or playing card games with my husband and two children, Logan and Chloé (Skip Bo, Sleeping Queens and Monopoly Deal are amongst our current faves).
