Untame Your Future

Wild Innovation is busy! This is an exciting time in the history (and future) of our business. Like many businesses, COVID presented us with a number of challenges. Now, we are seeing a lot of interest from organizations and individuals who want to take charge of their futures.

Workshops and presentations are filling up fast! I am excited about returning to the the Nebraska Water Leaders Academy next week to lead a workshop on strategic foresight and leadership. In two weeks, I am presenting to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC is doing some amazing work with strategic foresight and invited me to discuss strategic foresight as a core leadership competency. I am both grateful and thrilled to be part of their strategic foresight efforts! We are also working with several clients who are shaping the future of industries like industrial hemp and food production (more on those engagements later).

If you feel uncertain about the future, you are not alone. There is a lot of uncertainty in the world. Clients come to us because they want to create a clear vision and take the right actions to achieve their desired futures. Futures Coaching is designed to help clients untame their futures while creating more certainty. How? Wild Innovation combines strategic foresight with neuroscience and coaching. We use this unique approach to help individuals and organizations move forward with the direction and energy they need to achieve their desired futures.

How do I Increase My Confidence?

How do I increase my confidence?

This is the #1 question I get from ALL of my coaching clients, so if you struggle with your confidence-you are not alone!

Confidence is a continual process, and it is something high-level leaders, CEOs, managers, and new employees all struggle with throughout their careers and lives.

It is an issue I work with clients on daily. I also struggled with my own confidence as a leader and executive. It is an important topic, so confidence was the topic of my first book, Go Wild with Confidence! Strengthen your Inner Leaders and live your best life with purpose, passion, and fun!

I made my 2nd TikTok 🙂 to talk a little bit about confidence and posted it below. I hope you find it helpful!

Do you have questions that you would like answered? If so, add them below and I will answer them in future videos!

Intentional Congruence: The Future of Life & Business

I just listened to one of the best podcast episodes on the planet! One of my favorite podcasts is Glambition Radio with Ali Brown, and her interview with Jessica Mead is absolute fire!

As Futurist and Coach, I am always looking for models of leadership and life that are changing outdated paradigms and thought patterns. As a former employee, business owner (and mom), I am glad COVID forced us to change the way we approached work, careers, and education. The old workplace and learning norms needed to change. Being a student or a working mom (or parent) should not have not been so hard for soo long!

We no longer need to separate our lives in to distinct categories. In fact, we never could-because we are human. We brought our lives, personal challenges, and feelings to work. We just had to hide them for decades! Enter Intentional Congruence, which I define as the “purposeful alignment between each area of your life to create synergy and success.” I believe Intentional Congruence is a path to more prosperous futures for many families.

Jessica Mead is leading the way for businesses and families. She has created a model of prosperity for her family that incorporates the “Both-And” Futurist Mindset as well as an entrepreneurial approach to life. As the researcher who discovered that personal fulfillment was the key to motivation for entrepreneurial individuals, I totally appreciate- and will use- elements of her work!


A few of my favorite takeaways:

  • Find and create opportunities and let go of what is no longer working
  • We are as afraid of success as we are of failure
  • The educational institutions of old need to evolve
  • Intentional Congruence is a way to create synergy and success that blends our personal and professional lives
  • Trust yourself & let go of regret
  • Let go of money as the outcome; Money will find you as you grow and evolve

Rewire Your Brain with Gratitude

 How do you get through challenging times?  Rewire your brain with gratitude!

A number of my coaching clients have asked me how to get through these difficult times, and one tool anyone can use is gratitude!  We are bombarded with negativity all day, which means we have to be vigilant about creating a more positive mindset.  Gratitude is the key to doing this.  Make it easy, and make it fun.  Start by thinking about 3 things you are grateful for every morning and every night-right before you go to bed.  Why?  These positive habits will rewire your subconscious mind to put you in a better mood.  Research shows us that happier people have better relationships, better health outcomes, and better incomes.  So, take some time and get grateful today.

Remember, we build our future in the present moment-.  So, go wild with gratitude and make today great!

Untame Your Future!

Make Today Awesome!

You are creating your future with what you are thinking and feeling right at this very moment.

Research shows that the more positive and grateful we are in the present, the better our life outcomes will be-in every way! A positive present results in better relationships, more romance, more money and more fulfilling careers.

So, what are you going to do to enjoy today-this gift of the present that you have in front of you right now?
