Your life. Your voice. Your creative heart. Become the leader you were born to be.

Don’t miss out on your chance to be legendary. 

For decades, we the creative hearts have been hiding who we are at work and missing out on the opportunity to be legendary leaders.   We have gotten used to seeing our giving nature as a liability and our novel thinking as too far off the beaten path.  We have been disappearing into the system instead of becoming brave and boldly vulnerable.  

Today, 80% of the workforce is in the service sector.  Those who have creative heart stand out against a backdrop of sameness, defying all forms of competition because they do their work differently than anyone else ever has or ever will.

A truly creative heart creates a specific clarity, carving out space for us to do this work at our highest and best, with deep attention to behavioral skill and emotional awareness. 

When we are firmly rooted in our creative hearts, we are in possession of the confidence, empathy, and trust that we long for as we go deeper in our leadership — heading companies, managing teams, and putting organized plans behind our own ideas. 


“The future depends on what you do today.”   

Mahatma Gandhi 


Creative hearts face conflict with trust and kindness.  

When faced with conflict, a deeply seeded creative heart knows that the closer they stay to their giving and innovative nature, the more they will be at peace with the outcome of a business decision.

As creative hearts we aren’t push-overs.  But we’re not bent on gaining at someone else’s expense.  Living in our own creative space confidently and with faith in an abundant future lets us see change as opportunity and to use our creative nature to elevate the outcome regardless of the circumstances. 

As creative hearts we trust ourselves, we know our worth, and we believe in making a difference – and sleeping peacefully at night because of the way we spent our time at work. 

As creative hearts we don’t compete to win, but use clarity and truth in order to more completely seize the opportunities offered to us and to let things unfold with time.  In-depth behavioral studies show that people with this understanding of themselves and ability to stay close to their connectedness rise to the upper echelon of success at work.  

For these reasons, the creative heart is the primary and legendary behavioral skill that connects us with resilience and confidence, making us better at self-awareness and self-management, and at complex problem solving, conflict resolution, and planning & organizing.  Modern psychologists, organizational strategists, and brilliant business minds recognize the fact that this “creative heart” is a foundational skill for business excellence.

Today is the day to embrace your creative heart.  

The creative heart changes everything, forever.   Out of the shadows – into the light. Fight for the freedom of your creative heart, escape the drudgery, and learn what it means to be free.  Today is the day to embrace your creative heart.  Share your past, live your present, dream your future.  

Today you’re doing your job.  

Tomorrow you’ll be doing your life’s work.

With heart.


When you connect with your creative heart you will:

  • Better understand yourself and others
  • Communicate with an elevated sense of confidence
  • Form stronger professional relationships (and maintain them more effectively)
  • Create strategic plans with more ease and efficacy
  • Proficiently mitigate and manage conflict
  • Effortlessly pivot when change is required
  • Coach and mentor those you manage with less stress
  • Feel fully prepared for the future and what it holds
  • Create high performing and fiercely loyal teams who work together to provide measurable results

Over two decades at work, I made myself submissive to people less creative, less interesting, less talented, less forward-thinking, less able, and lacking connection to heart  because I felt like it was what was expected.

You probably see yourself in this story.  And as is true for many creative hearts, the real me existed in the shadows, quietly and constantly whispering, “there is more than this out there for you”.  

So, no more waiting.  Your time is now.  

Let me show you how to begin.
