Because You're YOU!

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

I was telling my friend about someone who was “getting on my nerves”. It’s always a mistake to give voice to the “negative”, and I knew it immediately when he said, “Your friend gets on your nerves because you’re YOU”. I laughed and said, “Yeah, that’s about right!” So, who’s getting on your nerves these days? And yes, that IS a trick question!

Measures Of Success

Thursday, August 20, 2009

A woman came into my office and was clearly anxious. I could tell by the way that she “worked” a rubber band she had brought with her to the session. She incessantly stretched it, pulled at it, and wrapped it around her fingers in an effort to appease her tension. We worked intensely and through it all, I lost awareness of the rubber band. Finishing up, I said goodbye at the door   and wondered if our work together had any impact whatsoever. As I turned back into my office, I looked at the table near where she was sitting and there it was, the rubber band! Sometimes measures of success can be very subtle. Do you take time to acknowledge the subtle measures of your success?

The Don't Times

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

He said, “We get along great unless we bump heads over chores”. I said, “Let me get this straight; you get along great, until you don’t”. We laughed, and he said, “Yeah; that’s about right.” It’s true for all of us. We get along great, until we don’t. It’s how we are in the “don’t“ times that make our relationships rise or fall. What do you think?

You CAN Change People!

Cultivating the Art of Maximum Influence

You’ve all heard the chant, but is it true? “You can’t change people, you can only change yourself.” I challenge this notion in a fun way, and with a unique twist that will enlighten and empower you! Through five focused steps, you will learn how to be a “person of interest” and a “change-agent” for those around you. Dressed up as a short talk or a mini-seminar, this Simply Encouraging® Experience will make you or your team more dynamic and effective at influencing one another, and the people groups that you serve.

Forming the Heart of a Team

Forming the Heart of a Team

Creating Shared Energy, Corporate Unity, and Positive Change

People fulfilling a common mission need to define themselves as a team in three core areas, and maximum impact is achieved by increasing shared energy, creating corporate unity, and setting into motion a dynamic process of positive change for all concerned. "Forming the Heart of a Team" is a powerful workshop experience that will teach your team how to achieve these three objectives, and a whole lot more! Specific “takeaways” of this experience are (1) awareness of your groups “collective power” and how to manage it for increase, (2) common outlooks and values that will create synergy and light up your mission, and (3) a culture of positive growth for your team, and the people that they serve. Great for civic groups, corporate & professional teams, and small communities.

Simple Encouragement® ~ Three Steps to Significance

A Keynote Presentation

 

We all want to make connections that leave enduring marks upon the lives of others. Some call it a legacy. It’s that sense of personal significance that every person craves. Somewhere between the cradle and the grave, we want to make a difference, touch a life, and to be remembered. Deep inside, we all want to leave our mark, and it’s easy!

 

It’s easy because we all have the capacity to speak “life to potential, healing to pain, and light to darkness™”. We hold the power of "life, healing, and light™"! Helping people to grasp this reality is the essence of the Simple Encouragement® Movement. Imagine, three simple steps to significance, and there are no requirements for degrees, mystical understandings, or special titles. It simply requires a heart that cares enough to touch a heart.

 

Simple Encouragement® ~ Three Steps to Significance is a moving Keynote Presentation that will stimulate any audience to begin making a profound difference in the lives of others, immediately! Through creative instruction and heartfelt narrative, this Simply Encouraging® Experience takes encouragement to a completely new level, revealing its deepest desire and intention.

 

  • Do you want to raise up new life in people? 
  • Do you want to be a healer in the lives of others? 
  • Do you want to shine light into dimly lit souls? 

 

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then this Keynote Presentation is for you! Take some time to read about the Simple Encouragement® Movement and contact me for booking information at thomas@simpleencouragement.com.

Noun-Nature to Verb-Essence

Noun-Nature to Verb-Essence
Discovering the Very Best Within You

Like most people, you're a noun, complete with a name and a birth certificate classifying you as a human being. Those around you associate your name with particular roles and while that's special enough, think it through. There are lots of people who bear your very same name, and they fulfill very similar roles.

What I'm referring to is your "noun-nature" and while it gives you a place in the world, deep on the inside, you know that there's so much more! Deep on the inside, you have an intrinsic and indispensable quality that only you can bring to this time, and to this place. You see, we come into the world as nouns and develop our "noun-natures", but a second awakening yearns for release.

What I'm referring to is your "Verb-Essence", and there's even a name to express it! Of course, a verb is a word that expresses an action defining the connection between two or more people. "Nouns" exist within roles, but "Verbs" have something specific to do, an impact to make, and life-giving essence to share.

You know that you've arrived when you become a verb, and "Noun-Nature to Verb-Essence ~ Discovering the Very Best Within You" takes you on a fun and fascinating journey from everyday "noun-nature" into your deepest reason for being, your new name, and your unique "Verb-Essence".

As the noun "Thomas", I fulfill some wonderful roles and functions, but as the verb "Encouraging", I complete my life's purpose with every breathe that I take. As Encouraging, I stimulate others to discover and express their deepest verb-essence, taking their lives from now to wow!

"Noun-Nature to Verb-Essence ~ Discovering the Very Best Within You" is a great seminar experience for small groups and corporate teams desiring to discover deeper personal understandings of their unique essence, and developing rich, playful connections while fulfilling common missions and goals.
