How are you? Who are you?

Jenn Shallvey

How are you?

Good? Great? Could be better?

How much of your answer is relevant to your mood, state and thoughts right now?

A typical question asked 100s of times a day. How often do you truly, genuinely consider how you are?

Others teach us inclusive love and acceptance

Jenn Shallvey

I ran into a beautiful person I know. This person reminded me so much of the way we choose our life, the gift we give to people and the opportunity we have by living. I met this person at an event and had not seen this person for at least two years. I knew that this person had health issues-that this

Why do you do the work that you do?

Jenn Shallvey

A simple question to start you thinking - "Why do you do the work that you do?". I don’t expect an answer right away. What I want to do is instead plant a seed of sorts. Yes I want you to consider this question as you go about your day to day work.

Celebrate You!

Jenn Shallvey

At the end of the year the media tends to circulate stories in all formats listing the top experiences in a variety of categories for the year. You don’t have to go far to learn who wrote the best books, shared the best stories, made the most impact, etc.  The lists are mostly the opinions of ‘experts’ in an industry or a result of a fancy algorithm

Are you on too much?

Jenn Shallvey

“Wake up. Wake up." The voice came to me louder and louder. No I was not dreaming. My husband was tapping me on the shoulder (not what you think) and telling me to wake up. It was very early in the morning. With only 5 hours sleep, exhausted from doing too much, I groggily sat up and grumbled back the obvious question "WHY?" .

Disrupt Much?

Jenn Shallvey

I had to do it. I had to use the buzz word. It is everywhere. I think a day does not go by where I don't here this word mentioned in a conversation, article online or new story.  I love it. I hate it.

I am not a fan of buzzwords. When you start to see a

Releasing the pain of the past

Jenn Shallvey

I  notice how much we can become attached to our past, our story and our personal history. It can define us and overwhelm us. We can be triggered into habitual behaviours and patterns that do not serve us nor others.  To be aware of this attachment is one thing. To do something about it is another.

Living all life gives you

Jenn Shallvey

What do you say when the unexpected happens and changes your life? This is the question I have pondered for the last couple of months and many times prior.  For me it is personal. For others it is distant and unrelated. Yet as we all progress through our days, weeks and months we encounter events close to us that trigger shifts and change.

Do you know what you want?

Jenn Shallvey

Do you know what you want?

I mean do you really, really, really know what you want?

This question is a powerful one.  

To know the answer to this question sets you up for a greater chance of creating meaning in your life and work.

What do you expect?

Jenn Shallvey

Consider this question for a moment.  The word expect is inherently one of the future, right?  So by asking you this I am in a way getting you to both think about now and the future.

This is a tricky way to kick off a new year. For it is at this time that we create expectations for ourselves.  Some call

Time to Reflect

Jenn Shallvey

It is a time of year when we all stop, reflect and review. I am fully aware of the endings and beginnings upon us. I also feel the buzz, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  For me this year it is one of returning to my old home for a family visit.  I am not sure about you but for me I am of two countries. Born in Australia, raised in the USA,

Word of Mouth

Jenn Shallvey

As you start to read this article I invite you to reflect first.

Consider when you last spoke about another person.  Now think about what you said about that person and to whom. Was what you said supportive or not? Was what you said helpful or not? Was what you said something you would say to that person directly?

Make my day!

Jenn Shallvey

Do you ever stop and consider how many people make your life possible? I know you are one key factor.  But look around at everything in your life for a moment and contemplate this question:

Who made your day possible?

Why do you do the work you do?

Jenn Shallvey

I asked this question the other day in a consultation. It was the first question that came to me. Since then I reflected on this question.  I realised that I ask a lot of people why they do the work they do.

Why?

Because when we don’t know why we do the work we do then we are effectively unconsciously going through the motions. We show up in physical form. We do what we are trained to do. We go home.  Yet we likely disengage, miss out on really adding value and haphazardly enjoy our experience of work.  We miss out on a sense of purpose that drives our actions and behaviours.  This lack of awareness can lead to less constructive behaviours and states such as blaming others, not taking personal responsibility, losing motivation, frustration, low self esteem and an array of non supportive emotions.

Paths of discovery

Jenn Shallvey

We are all on paths of discovery.

We are all seeking to discover how to be true to ourselves, irrespective of the circumstances. No place makes this journey more unpredictable than work. When we embark on the path of work we are forever faced with challenges and opportunities to express and be ourselves. 

This discovery continues throughout our career as we encounter corporate culture, office politics, company policies, external regulatory requirements and a myriad of other externally set boundaries and parameters. Effectively we are surrounded by expectations about how we work, what we do, where we go and when we show up.
