In the science experiment called life, Andrea considers herself, and her husband, a data point, and her changed behaviour a hypothesis. Abusive behaviour can be stopped.

With a million views, shares and comments, her video When the Police Came is a clear signal that this is a message whose time has come. Her talks, Redeemable Abusers: Possibilities for Healing from the Perpetrator Side of the Equation, and Why Abusers Abuse provide much-needed counterpoints to the prevailing discourse about abuse, and represent a sea change in focus and prevention.

Andrea has traveled to Ecuador, Trinidad, India, and across the United States with the Indrani’s Light Foundation to teach, speak and spread the message of emotional leadership and appropriate anger.

Andrea is also CEO of Thought Partners International, a consulting firm that champions problem-solving, and ideas that are ahead of their time. Described by clients as having a hands-on, “Back Pocket CEO,” Andrea’s strengths lie in helping innovative ideas find footing. Results come in the form of leveraged, sustainable income and, her favourite outcome, measurable change in the mainstream conversation about possibilities.

She is the coach you want when the chips are down, and stakes are high. A thought partner whose game gets better when what you’re working on is deeply important.

When she’s not swimming or paddle-boarding in the lake, or homesteading with her husband of 23 years in the Pacific Northwest, she strives to be worthy of the many blessings in her life, and to live up to what her dog thinks of her.

"You have much more power than you think."

When I reflect on key moments in my life when something did not turn out to the best, I realize that I had a lot of power, but I didn't know it, or, I didn't own it. I had so very much more power than I realized.

"It's possible to be positive and furious at the same time."

It is most definitely difficult sometimes, but it is possible. How about for you?

My sabbatical produced a nuanced reflection which I want to share about in today's community coaching call. It has to do with power.

When I mine my career for the conditions under which the best things happened, when the best of me was activated to roam free, I discovered that there were three main areas in which I had more power than I thought. A LOT more power. That if I had known, and been capable of wielding it well, such very different outcomes would have occurred.

Nothing is ever wasted, and these are not regrets, but the stories are instructional, I think. I want the call today to be about this.

Welcome in, and join us if you'd like, we start in 3 minutes. And, yes the recording will be shared afterwards.

#doonethingDon't forget to sign up for the next Community Coaching call on September 19th. You'll receive call details before we meet, as well as a link to the recording of the last call if you missed it, or wish to revisit it.
