One does not climb to attain enlightenment.

Rather, one climbs because

they are enlightened.

What does it mean to live your calling? 

 

Like many, you may think of calling as a fitting career or meaningful work that ignites passion and provides a sense of purpose. But that view is incomplete; it's also the reason that so many people miss the joy of living and fulfilling their calling.

 

Calling is the ultimate joyful engagement with work and life! I've researched the meaning of calling across centuries to understand the original idea, how far we've drifted from it, and why that drift greatly matters to organizations and society today. I am excited to share what I've learned to help you experience the joy and satisfaction of living your calling -- wherever that path may lead.

What to expect from training. . .

 

Learning programs and keynote addresses are all designed to help you  renew your vitality, sharpen your focus, increase integrity, and expand your capacity to contribute to a more humane and high-functioning  world.

Once all of the “business leaders” came into focus, and the comparison was drawn between them, it became rather evident why this was quite an astute case to use in studying leadership/calling… [T]he story makes a great point about how calling can serve to lead you through uncertainty and ostensibly dreadful situations in order to realize your full potential.” 

Why I do this work... 

 

This is a calling to which I've devoted years of study, effort, practice and prayer. I became intrigued by the idea of calling while working in the corporate world. I had a great career that was aligned with my interests, valued my skills, enabled me to use them, and provided amazing growth opportunities amidst good colleagues and plentiful rewards. I felt fortunate to be paid to do my work, even with the normal lows of a job. Yet something was missing. That ennui led me to research what it truly means to have and live a calling. Surprisingly, that quest has taken me to graduate school, across disciplines, and around the world.  In the process, I've discovered ancient wisdom that speaks to our times and numerous people who show us how to live a calling now. I'm delighted to share those insights with you, in hopes of encouraging and equipping you with tools for your journey, wherever it may lead. 

 

I invite you to read my academic book, "Conversations About Calling", business case, and to contact me to discover ways that you can fulfill your calling and elevate your life's work.
