Happy New Year!
"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
- Albert Einstein
As 2010 draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on a year well-lived. Looking back, the experiences I've had these past 12 months have been life-changing--constantly reminding me of what really matters in life. At times, it's been challenging and difficult, full of unexpected hurdles; and then in the next moment, it's been joyful, loving, and full of laughter.
I hope that 2010 was a wonderful year for you, too.
Fortunately, if I'm on the road then I'm doing
what I love: using presence, passion,
and purpose to help
people and organizations follow their dreams and achieve their goals.
At Common Ground, our job is to help you uncover, discover and use
your unique talents in order to
manifest powerful change in your life and the lives of
those your work touches.
More than 90% of all of
our engagements this past year continued to come from your direct
referrals and for that we are overwhelmed with
Please click the 'pics' link on the left to view lots of great new
photos added to our website in 2010. And please be sure to take a look at the case study slideshows we developed for some of our work in Afghanistan, Bolivia, and Kosovo.
Though the past couple of years have been tough for so many people and organizations, we're amazed everyday by the creativity, commitment and hard work of people committed to their life's mission.
At Common Ground, it continues to push us to innovate when it comes to the
services and assistance we can offer.
Last year, for example, we began offering Leadership
Coaching services to our
social profit and civil society clients; and in 2010 we saw our expectations met and exceeded.
Using telephone and internet video communications,
we're now able to help you solve tough problems
without incurring ever-increasing travel expenses.
Of course, we're still be on the road with you as often as
necessary, but our hope is that this service
will meet some of
your short-term or emergency needs.

Leadership Coaching or

And rest assured that in 2011 we'll be adding a host of new cost-effective tools to help you achieve your mission-critical goals.
Finally, please know that we feel honored
and privileged to be even just a small part of your
amazing efforts to make our world more just, more
secure, and more ripe with the spirit of possibility.
As this new year and
new decade dawn, may your life be filled
with love, your heart with hope,
and our world with peace.
