Posted on Mar 6, 2019 in blog, Emotional, Inspiring Change, Physical, Relational, Spiritual

by Louis Cinquino In most of my solo running, I like to mix things up. I rarely know exactly where I’m going to run when I head out the door. I have a time or general location in mind and just go where my interest seems to take me.

The Practice of Befriending Our Resistance

Posted on Feb 27, 2019 in blog, Emotional, Inspiring Change, Intellectual, Relational, Spiritual

by Kim Childs Several years ago, I was invited to be a writer and facilitator on a wonderful project. On the morning it began, I found myself dawdling and stalling on my way out the door for the 9:00 am meeting. Once in the car, I encountered rush hour traffic and arrived 15 minutes late. The other staff members, who’d traveled hundreds of miles to be there, were on time and waiting for me, the person who lived two miles away. It was a...

CiPP Alumni Spotlight: Ruth Pearce

Posted on Jan 30, 2019 in Alumni Spotlight, blog, Emotional, Inspiring Change, Intellectual, Relational

by Suzee Connole The work of a project manager is all about facilitating communication and coordination among groups of people. That’s why CiWPP alum Ruth Pearce, who has been a project manager for 25 years, was surprised to discover that project managers tend to rank quite low on the VIA character strengths scale in social intelligence—while scoring high in hope, prudence, and appreciation of beauty. “What stood out most for me during...

Difficult Conversations: The Key to Connection

Posted on Jan 23, 2019 in blog, Emotional, Relational

by Amy Alpert The first hard conversation I can remember initiating was in third grade, when I was new to my elementary school. I walked up to another third grader, who to me was cool in every way. We were lined up to leave music class and she was in line with me. I did not practice what I was going to say. I just launched into “Hi Suzy, I like the games you play.
