During my time practicing in the conventional physical therapy setting,
I experienced the disconnection so many of us do.
That disconnect between our work, craft, and skillset to that sense of value, worth, and gifting to something greater than us.
I found myself on the proverbial corporate ladder, climbing to achieve some etherial level of success to win the career validation game.
I was confusing the need to prove my value with my productivity with my actual worth and identity.
And it was burning me out.
This is where my learning passion comes in. I did a dive – a deep dive – into books upon books, resource upon resource exploring observations and perspectives regarding the human condition; how culture, technology, and conventional norms are feeding the dis-integration of who we have become, and who we actually are.
A process of unlearning and relearning emerged. And the fallout was tremendous. Re-connection to that sense of who I am, my place in the world, and my gift and work to share!
Here is where my passion for teaching shines.
I started sharing these transformative insights and freedoms I learned and experienced through this process, with patients, business owners, managers… Thus sparking their process and re-connection as well!
I brought it into the management role I had – first informally – nuggets of insight here and there. And then through a more formal structure of organizational development.
Moral, safety, a sense of belonging, purpose, and identity emerged with those I was consulting. And their business metrics – their bottom-lines – also reaped reward!
And thus began The Process: Consulting – A guide through this search for re-connection; taking individuals, teams, or companies through this process, reconnecting to themselves, each other, and that which they have been searching for the whole time.
