Occasionally, I find something written by someone else that resonates so loudly, I'll share it here too - you'll find it with credit to the author.  If you'd like to have my weekly article delivered straight to your inbox, please join our Leading Edge Community below.

By Christen Killick | Apr 27, 2020 |

I don’t know about you, but my tolerance levels have changed.  My willingness to take in certain things, mainly news and information sources, and my choices about how to process them are changing.  I think there is a certain level or capacity for fear and negativity which, once reached, the human spirit tends to turn…

Today is Easter Monday, and Christians the world over are celebrating the resurrection of Christ – a rebirth into a new form, with new parameters and new understandings; the culmination of a walk of incredible hardship and personal journeying that also hugely affected the beliefs of a whole world moving forward.  Whilst I’m not going…

However You’re Doing Right Now Is Just Fine

When Distance Meant Love & It Kept Us Alive

By Christen Killick | Mar 30, 2020 |

Well, fun times!  It really is like something out of a movie and occasionally it feels like Armageddon may be just around the corner.  Considering that my core business (not to mention what feeds my soul) is getting teams of people in a room together so that they can better “see” and communicate with each…
