…With untapped resources you’ve had inside all along.
I’m Laura Stukel from Team Sage. For over 25 years I’ve helped individuals, families, organizations and industries shorten the time, and the pain, involved in making a change. Over that same time, I’ve studied with the industry’s leading thinkers and learned about their journal writing methods to ease the navigation of my own turbulent times. It might not be a straight line, but there is always a path from the current situation to the new normal. The wisdom on the steps to take comes from within.
A few years ago I was cranking through my bucket list (like when my final project kicked off at the White House!) and let’s just say, change happened. Around that same time through DNA testing, an amazing “Search Angel” and a little luck, we identified my father-in-law’s biological parents. While I was spinning career-wise I saw my husband trying to make sense of all the new questions, emotions and frustrations — where we had expected closure instead.
To process both situations, I turned to my trusty journal. The convergence moved me to focus my change management skills at the individual level by becoming a certified Journal to the Self® workshop instructor.
Now I help people in transition — from busy Gen X parents wondering about how to balance crazy/wonder/full lives to DNA testers like my husband (at the forefront as technology redefines the concept of ‘family’ before our eyes). I teach people simple and fun journal techniques so they can use their own inner wisdom to solve problems and achieve their own vision and goals.
