Welcome!

In a world characterized by nearly constant demands on our time, attention, and energy, we can feel as if we've lost our direction and our center.  Life feels like a never ending "to-do" list and there is little joy or peace.  Is this all there is?

I don't think so.  I believe that we can live more positive, more balanced, and happier lives.  Is it easy?  No.  We have to overcome biology, habit, and cultural pressures.  However, it is possible and there are research-based practices which can help us craft lives (and careers) in which personal well-being is a reality, not a smiley face bumper sticker. 

As an organizational and well-being consultant, workshop designer, facilitator, coach, public speaker, career counselor, Veteran's advocate, retired Army General, geek & nerd, I want to share practical information for living well, working well, and being well.  Please explore my website for additional information on the psychology of well-being and the neuroscience of everyday life.

Additionally, Learning for the Journey, LLC is my private consulting practice.  Please contact me if I may help you or your organization in a more formal way by…

  • Designing and delivering customized workshops
  • Facilitating leadership, strategic planning, or working sessions
  • Teaching or coaching on "soft-skills"
  • Speaking on topics related to well-being, transitions, life and career planning, and organizational success with individual well-being

Again, welcome and thank you for taking time from your work and your life to visit Learning for the Journey.

Wayfinding is the ancient art of figuring out where you are going when you don’t actually know your destination. For wayfinding, you need a compass and you need a direction. Not a map—a direction.
