Meg’s blog

This blog is about helping you to become a more effective leader.

Leadership is not necessarily about your position in an organization. It is about rallying yourself and others to a better future. This could occur in your workplace, your community or home life, or even in a compelling future you want to create for yourself. It is about tapping into that deeper inner place inside you and in others of movement that is already waiting to happen.

As an executive coach, mindfulness coach, mediator and mom, I have lots of stories and tools to share with you. I hope that this blog inspires you, provides you concrete examples and systematic tools and evidence, and creates a community of sharing. I’d d love to hear from you too of your successes, frustrations and questions. Enjoy!
