These last few months have certainly been rife with change. Our world has faced and continues to evolve in light of unprecedented events, and many of us are shifting to new ways of living, working, leading, and learning. Meanwhile, I have been busy shepherding the work on learning communities and reflective practice that I’ve been focusing on for the past couple of years and preparing to launch Shine & Rise Insights. It’s been busy, fun, and a learning experience to say the least.
Over the past 20+ years, I have seen myself as a teacher first. And, as I have worked in various leadership roles, I have been continually struck by how often my training in active learning and instructional practice has come in handy–sometimes in very unconventional ways. Over the course of the two decades that I have been in the professional world, more than half of that time has been spent focusing on how we learn, lead, and communicate online and how we can leverage technology in an intentional way to do some really great things. But I have also seen what happens when we forget what is important when we are engaging in these digital spaces–when we lose the focus on human interaction and collaboration.
Shine & Rise Insights was created as a solution for leaders and organizations grappling with how to be effective when how we work, learn, and collaborate is shifting. Through consulting, training, and leadership development, my hope is to share proven strategies to help individuals and organizations innovate and re-envision how their teams and communities engage and interact. I envision this blog as a space to share insights, stories, and trends.
I look forward to having you as a part of this community!
