Our Reflection on in:side Group Coaching

in:side group coaching reflection

At the start of 2020, my team and I introduced online weekly group coaching as part of our learning program in:side. We weren’t sure who would show up or how it would go.

So often, disparate emotions and experiences co-exist; goodness and sadness; birth and death; confidence and fear; loss and gain. It’s how life rolls.

Lessons Learned from Socializing My New Puppy


July 19, 2021, was a summer day like any other in Baltimore; hot and pretty humid. From my office, I could hear all the kids at the community pool across the street. I love the sounds in our neighborhood and am especially drawn to and fond of the sounds of the kids playing and swimming […]

Ten Years: The Best Is Yet To Come

Ten Years

As I write a post celebrating ten years in business, I am less than 50 feet from my original perch, where I doodled, mind-mapped, and talked myself into building the confidence to step out on my own.  Between those days and now, more has changed than has stayed the same.

Then, I consider what we have achieved as a team. The grit and dedication humble me. It’s easy to forget the positives, the accomplishments. Some days […]

Are You Obsessed with Social Influence?

Have you watched ‘The Social Dilemma’ on Netflix? If not, add it to your list and watch it when you have time to pay attention. Put down your phone, your laptop, and watch closely. There is not a week that goes by that someone doesn’t ask how they can beat LinkedIn’s algorithm, post at the […]

Do You Feel Like You’re Swimming Outside in the Cold?

I think, metaphorically, some of us feel like that’s exactly what we’re doing— and it’s not comfortable.  We live across the street from a neighborhood pool that is traditionally open between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
