Why Hire A Poet (Infographic)
I help people find their voices: I help my clients identify what they want, why they want it, how to say it or ask for it, how to clearly articulate, how to listen and respond, how to make good decisions-all of these things help someone stand firmly, decidedly, in their own important places, speaking with confidence. Where do you want to take your company or team? What does success look like for you? What do you want them to do, or stop doing? Your ability to articulate, to use language that rings true to you and that influences others, is using your voice well.
The World’s A Stage (Article)
Many times when I work with clients on redefining their company cultures, they’ve got a strong request: “Get rid of the drama!” Generally, they are referring to the thickening plots of the human space that is work: the twists and turns, the gossip, the betrayals, the secrets and the spies. In many cases, we talk about these very personal dramas as distractions and detractions. Why can’t the just do their jobs? we often wonder when we are embroiled in the latest saga of the stories of our employee’s lives.
This poem, the title poem of my latest poetry book, is really about those juxtapositions we experience as human beings: natural beauty and mechanical noise, great experiences and the stress of modern technology. “Let me be able for this,” is really a borrow from my friends the Ó Súilleabháin brothers, Owen and Moley, two talented and gifted Irish musicians. To be able for something, in Ireland, is to be strong enough, courageous enough, fit for it. And, in the end, it is about experiencing the joys we get from “all of it,” no matter how dark or light. Notice the opposites, throughout.
