A Coaching Journey – Pt. 8

February 11, 2015

I am a woman of thoughts, words and deeds; a woman who loves the flexibility of retirement, yet is resistant to change; a woman who likes to mull things over before going full throttle. I’m not even sure if Marielle realizes how much she has helped me merge these disparate parts of me into a […]

A Coaching Journey – Pt. 7

February 11, 2015

Working with Marielle on my Strategies for the past while, it somehow didn’t occur to me that I would have to act on them – that that is what “action” is. Well, now I’m looking at my strategies for my organizational goals and realizing that the first one is looking long and hard at myself […]

Marielle’s Book Club

February 5, 2015

I (Marielle Gauthier) am a voracious reader and always have a few books on the go with a fiction, personal development and resource books. I started  thinking about particular books that really helped to change my life. I thought it might be a good idea for me to revisit some of those books and share […]

What the Chilkoot Trail Taught Me about Leadership – Pt. 3

January 30, 2015

The first day on the trail – August 2006. We had spent the night at the Dyea campground just south of the Chilkoot trailhead. I was very excited and a little anxious about starting the hike and consequently didn’t sleep very well. I tossed and turned, going through all of my lists in my head, […]

A Coaching Journey – Pt. 6

January 23, 2015

Rather than work on the strategic plans for Goals 1 and 2, Marielle and I decided to take a sledge hammer to that wall that seemed to have been building up – especially since my retirement – and blocking me in several areas of my life: P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-I-O-N. At least, if we could create some cracks […]

A Coaching Journey – Pt. 5

January 16, 2015

So, after a bit of sweat and hard work, I got the strategic structure for Goal #2, and am hopefully on my way to staring down the other two goals. In the meantime, I was so energized by the process, and revving my engine to move forward, that I decided to put some fuel in […]

What The Chilkoot Trail Taught Me about Leadership – Pt. 2

January 15, 2015

I love going on adventures and trying new things, so when I started hearing about this great hiking trail in the Yukon called the Chilkoot Trail, I was very intrigued. I mentioned my thoughts about hiking the Chilkoot to my sister Lucille, a transplanted prairie girl who now lives in Whitehorse, and she said that […]

What the Chilkoot Trail Taught Me about Leadership

January 7, 2015

This year, I had the pleasure of spending the Christmas holidays with my sister and her family in Whitehorse, Yukon. I have visited Whitehorse many times and I am always in awe of this City – the beauty and ruggedness of the land; its hardy and adventuresome people, and its amazing history. Reminders of the […]

A Coaching Journey – Pt. 4

January 5, 2015

I was reviewing my notes and prepping for my Strategy session with Marielle when I noticed that all three of my primary goals, and even my secondary goal, had a common roadblock that was preventing my moving forward. And that roadblock (or, rather, “a brick wall”) was procrastination. Marielle would call this “an insight”. And, […]
