I provided leadership coaching at the American Public Health (APHA) Conference again this year. This is something that I have done for the last several years with three of my coaching colleagues (#Bluopal, #hannacooper, #micheleroden, #brucekawahara). It’s always a privilege to be invited to do this work and I love meeting so many interesting public health professionals! Each time I talk with people about their careers, their life purpose, their passion and desire to make the world a better place, I am reminded of the following quote:

‘Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it because what the world needs is people who have come alive.’ –Howard Thurman (philosopher, theologian, and civil rights leader)

What might the world be like if more people did what made them come alive??
