I have always been driven by a desired to contribute and to have an impact. I have had a few distinct careers: a development economist, an organization development consultant and leadership coach. I have been employed by a university, by several large companies, and for the past 16 years, I have had my own consulting and coaching company. At this point in my life I am asking myself whether I want to continue on this path, with intentionality, or create or find a new path.
I have lived in several places in the US, in England, Paris, and in Burkina Faso. 21 years ago I decided to move to Atlanta, where I have created a rich life across many dimensions – friends, spirituality, and culture to name a few. I love to travel and explore new places – what I most enjoy is having connection with local people. I speak French, and will learn Spanish during the next year.
I am a sister, daughter, aunt, friend, and partner. And I am a lifelong learner.
My Fall Lab
I am saying YES to determining, with intentionality, what I want to focus my professional life on for this next period – 5 – 15 years. What compels or would fulfill me at this point in my life?
Current Guiding Question
For the past 20 years my life purpose has been: To live a full and joyful life, with integrity and vision to create positive, joyful relationships and to support others and myself to realize their potential in order to create a better world.
Is this still my life purpose? If I would like to have more impact, how does this purpose change, or how might I have more impact?
What would this require of me?
What is the world calling for from me at this point in my life?
