Liberal Arts education is taking a back seat to skilled trades jobs and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) training. (More on that in a future post).
We can fill that gap.
Imagine business consulting and team training that pulls out the creative problem solving skills that are lacking in workers so narrowly focused on tech or trade subjects?
Suddenly, your work training seminar pulls together all the principles of a general studies education!
This story from Forbes helps to point out the workplace conundrum we’ll soon be facing.
Well, to clarify it is one of my many obsessions. It goes along side poetry, theater, puppets, creative empowerment, yoga and self-help books. I believe that I have been life coaching myself and close family members since I was in highschool. I never really knew what I was doing had the fancy name of “life coaching.” I have just always been very positive, down to earth, practical and pretty much fearless. I am a poet who has a love affair with words. If I don’t know anything in life I believe with all my heart that words are truly life altering. Words hold extreme power and with that power everything and anything is possible.
As I incubate and manifest Creative Bravado with my two other genius friends I am thinking big. Why not? I have always had a vision of working with organizations suffering from low staff morale and brainwashed into the limited thinking that says, “Work is work, so it shouldn’t be enjoyable. Just grin and bear it. Just do the work.” I have been working since I was 15 years old and have been amazed at how many leaders and managers truly believe that the energy and morale of staff has no relationship to the success of organization. The same principle applies to all of us as we navigate our own personal lives. I have been in a transition stage in my own life that has me thinking creatively about ways to craft the life I want to lead. A life that is empowered and aligned with my natural passions.
Creative Bravado came into my life at the perfect time. I want to share my over 15 years of training, professional development and program management experience with small and large Arts and Education organizations with you. I want to blend my love of theater, performance and writing with staff training, self-development and strategic planning for your organization and life.
I dream of leading a staff retreat with your employees that provides the space to use performance and art to build innovative ways to grow the organization and to empower you. Who says that staff retreats have to be filled with the same team building exercises? The best way to build anything is through honest collaboration that is unique and out of the box. Its time to try something new. Time to blaze a new path to growth. I’m here to dream with you. Think of me as that friend that never says no to any adventure you propose. I am always down. Lets fly together.
So, let’s get started now. Share with me any business books or websites that get you pumped and hyped up on fulfilling your dreams.What works for you? How do you stay motivated to walk the path towards your dreams?
All the best,
