What do horses have to do with it?

Are You Experiencing Growing Pains?
Not Enough Time
The number one issue small business leaders come to me with is that there simply aren't enough hours in the day.
Life has become a hamster wheel of tasks.
"I can't find enough good people."
"I'm think I'm delegating, but I have to re-do work. "
"My team is not showing enough leadership. I need them to step up."
The above quotes all indicate underlying internal leadership challenges.
You are probably being "too nice". . . to the point where it's not useful, and it's not actually nice.
Psychological Safety ?!
Even with the best intentions, Psychological Safety can be hard to achieve. Leaders often reach for a "command and control" style as a way of coping with stress and because it got results in the past.
However, when you lead this way, it creates more anxiety and fear and that is not followable. In an organization with a social mission it also feels counter to stated purpose and values and can cause a lot of distress.
Getting out of reactive patterns, the ones that sabotage your success and happiness, is an inside job.
It requires focus, commitment and compassion.
Leadership is the willingness to stand for your values and for your authentic self,
even though . . .
All leadership, whether positional, situational or tribal, is fundamentally about self-leadership.
Most Choice Point Leadership coaching engagements start with the 6-week Positive Intelligence program.
The program creates a foundation of "Mental Fitness". Just like you would go workout at a gym to increase your physical strength, this program increases your capacity to respond to life's challenges with a positive mindset.
Just being around horses has been well researched and proven to lower stress and help us to detoxify.
Benefits of horse-assisted coaching include: developing executive presence, mastering energetic boundaries, gaining mutual respect, and increasing confidence.
Ready to step-up? This program helps you master and embody positive, creative leadership.
Whether you are a positional leader or just want to be author of your own life, this will help you get there!
Janet has been instrumental in my leadership development. I've hired Janet on 3 different occasions for different work situations I was in.
Janet has helped me understand dysfunctional work relationships and navigate ways to re-work them into productive relationships.
She also helped me dive into what I'm most passionate about and build a track record that ultimately led to me getting a great job opportunity that I love.
Janet has been a trusted thought partner and coach and I highly recommend her to my friends and colleagues.
Executive Coach iRestart
Janet is a consummate professional who is in a league all on her own. Her intuitive depth is not only accurate, it's excavating.
I have journeyed into places I never knew existed because of Janet, and as a result, have been able to do deeper work than I ever thought possible.
She connects the dots in my history and quickly, yet gently, takes me down the road to recovery.
I am grateful to have done incredible work with her guidance.
Janet is one of those rare individuals that sees beyond what is truly there.
I reached out with the interest of learning how to navigate a challenging work environment.
I was immediately impressed with Janet's skills, compassion and knowledge in the first ten minutes of our conversation. She asked the right questions, listened carefully to my situation and quickly offered helpful advice and resources. I immediately felt as if I had an ace in my pocket.
She helped me understand with clarity what makes me tick ...
I recommend her with great enthusiasm. Thank you Janet!

How will it look in 5 or 10 years if you stay stuck in reactivity?
How will it look next year?
If you just winced, here's what you need to know:
Toxic situations don't magically get better, they get worse. Poison spreads, and when our energy drains in one area of our life it affects other areas.
If you want something different for yourself, if you want something different for the world, YOU have to decide to learn how to role model what you want to create.
When you habitually make choices to counter your safe-keeping self (meaning the lies you told yourself at one time that kept you safe but are now no longer relevant) and put yourself into a proactive, growth mindset you grow your leadership, your creativity and your impact exponentially.
You can achieve success many ways, but only a positive mindset will create happiness for yourself and contribute to the happiness of those around you.
How will it be when you AND your team are consistently problem solving from this powerful place?
Our world is filled with distractions, some of which are truly addicting. When we develop ways to know and come back to our core self, we eminate creative power.
Presence allows us to acknowledge what actually is, and only from there can we move into anything different...or not.
When a team as a group has a consistent practice of being present, an organization radiates power and its impact increases.
Purpose isn't some magical state available only to those select few who meditate on mountain tops.
Purpose and meaning can imbue your every-day living.
It can imbue your team and your organizational culture. Won't it be great when your people get along and work well together?
We all have purpose. Naming our individual and collective values, vision and mission and then systematically aligning how we work together to be true to that, creates magic.
