MEET YOUR FACILITATORS
Hi, I'm Christine
As a leader, coach, and facilitator I get the opportunity to hear and work with people on what gets them stuck. In this process, I have learned so much about myself and what gets me stuck. Typically, it’s a story I have based on a perspective that is so deeply rooted in me, that every exchange I have with people is a chance for me to see how clever my mind is in wanting to keep me stuck. There is safety and comfort there. The more I started practicing mindfulness with ME, the more I saw how I was using my story as a shield or an excuse for crap. By leveraging all my relationships as a place to experiment, I gathered some good data. I’ll share my stories of learning- the good, the bad and especially the ugly. I use humour as the great defense mechanism so the more stressed I am, the funnier I am. Oh, and by the way, people who swear are smarter- just saying.
Hello, Greg here
The greatest journey begins with a single step, and my first steps happened in Wisconsin – the land of dairy, cheese, and all things Packers! I grew up loving these things, and I still do. And I love my work. I have been running executive leadership development programs for over 25 years as a facilitator, consultant, and coach, and have done this for companies across five different continents. I have a great passion for bringing people together to collaborate – and I am a deep believer in the power of a group. After all these years, I still get excited to guide new groups and begin new challenges. I love the journey. I bring to my work the understanding and compassion that comes from experience … a ton of lessons, stories, and insights, and still building! I begin every day with meditation, and end some of my best days with a Green Bay Packers’ victory! And yes, I wear the cheesehead…But not in the summer!
