One of the engagements I’ve taken on in my work is to deliver two-day workshops on leadership and communication skills to a group of folks who have traditionally not been required to have or use them.  It’s an interesting exercise because of the range of reactions in the room.  Some folks are starving for the learning and consume and process the teaching right in front of me.  Others start the two-day sessions fearful and end the sessions fearful.  The source of the fear varies, but I think it all boils down to discomfort with the unknown and an unwillingness to brave that unknown, even with the promise of better days ahead.

So today’s short post is to be grateful to my coach, Kelleen Griffin.  Kelleen has done more in a shorter period of time than anyone else to help me not be afraid of the unknown and to trust in the better days ahead that come from learning difficult, uncomfortable things.  I don’t always act in conformance with what she’s taught at first, but I hope that eventually, after I’ve had some time to think about it and gather courage, that I end up there.  I hope that you all have someone in your life like this, and if you don’t, I’d encourage you to call Kelleen.
