My Blog

It started with a question hastily scribbled on a post-it note in the midst of the pandemic. What is one thing I’m going to do to change my life today? As a transformation professional, I led employees through complex changes, yet felt cemented when trying to shift patterns that did not serve me in my personal life. From this, the idea of makeoneshift.com was born. What happens if people apply the tools used in structured change management approaches to personal goal setting? Imagine a kaleidoscope. With every shift, a new pattern materializes with endless possibilities. Join me on this journey as I invite you to make one shift every day.
