Coach Klein Featured on Carol Roth's Website

I recently found out I am featured in Carol Roth's Blog entitled '95 Strategies for Work/Life Balance When You Work from Home' ... Check out my strategy below and click here for the complete article!

20. Structure, Structure!
Create the same structure you would if you were in an external office. Start and end the day at the same, specific time. Take your lunch break and two brief breaks during the day. You can use that time to throw in a load of laundry or make personal phone calls. At the end of the work day, close the office door and do not go back in until morning. Would you keep running into an external office?

Susan Klein, MCC and Brian Johnson at the Conversation Among Masters Coaching Conference

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Brian Johnson at the Conversation Among Masters coaching conference, Albuquerque, NM. If you are not receiving Brian's Philosopher's Notes, you are missing out!

Brian has created the biggest ideas from 100 of the most influential books written, including those on philosophy, finance, personal and professional growth. These are the 6 page "Cliff notes", along with an MP3, on all the books, so if they resonate with you, you can always purchase the book.

Dealing with Anger

There is a lot of anger in the world right now. Much like a bunch of spoiled kids accustomed to having their way, people are yelling and lashing out about how life isn't the way they want it. My view as a coach, is that people who are yelling are in pain. It is not up to us to stop their pain, but rather reframe our response to it, in the moment. Here is the reframe- pain and challenges are purposeful, they are for our good. We learn from them, we grow from how we respond to the pain and challenges. The challenges we have now are the best for our future. We must let people experience what they experience.

So let's create a paradigm shift. If we respond with compassion to anger, we can harness the energy and use it to lead the way to peace. Compassion, as a response, does not mean we have to DO anything. There is nothing to do. It is simply a startegy and.... it takes practice; especially when our buttons get pushed. The more we practice, the less we judge, and the faster it becomes our default response. As we provide the space of compassion, we model strength of character and strength of puropose - and it WILL affect others. It will trickle down and trickle up.

Compassion can and will change our lives. Compassion for our own humanity, compassion for the humanity of others, for our bosses, our parents, our children, spouses, lousy commercials on TV, etc.

I am committed to practicing compassion. Will you join me?
