What are Company Values, & What Are AGL's Values?
Values are your soul print. They are an expression of your deepest and truest self. We never operate apart from our values, but oftentimes our values go unnoticed or unexpressed.

Can Positive Emotions Impact Racism?
Can positive emotions impact racism? What I am saying is that we need a new brain. We need a new way of thinking, doing, and being better.

ALL ABOUT MINDSETS
Coaching is all about mindsets and perspective shifts. What happens when we let go of expectations or the things we have ‘always’ wanted? At least in my life, I am discovering that when I let go, joy follows more fully.July 30, 2018
