After much speculation on part of several of you readers (honestly, you should see my email) I’m happy to announce that I am merging my coaching practice into Ripple Communications, where I will serve as President.

Karen Nussle and I have been trying out a partnership for several months now, slowly testing and trying to see how we can bring out the best in each other’s work. And it’s been a true delight.
Not only is Karen one of the finest people I’ve ever known, but the whole Ripple team is made up of smart, kind, insightful humans and the idea of collaborating with them every day gives me the shivers.
Now, just so you know, I will continue to write for you every week, and I will continue to work one-on-one with clients. From time to time, we’ll also offer programs, trainings and classes through Ripple.
And I’ll be working with Ripple clients on their strategic planning, communications strategy, positioning and change management – all things I have in my toolbox already.
From my perspective, this change is a total win-win-win. And I couldn’t be more thrilled with the prospect of doing the work I love in this way.
To each of you who have walked with me through the years, let me say thank you. Your support, your enthusiasm, your cheering section – it’s made a huge difference to in my life. As I navigate this new path, it’s great to have you stay in my corner.
So, thank you. And here’s to change – I am 100% for it.
