  • XPollination (Ep. 19) - Millennial Grit and Resilience

    in Management

    As a dynamic consultant, coach, and educator, Sarah Scala has over 15 years of experience in supporting organization development, leadership, and change management for diverse organizations. She is passionate about creating solutions that strengthen interpersonal skills and support change with individuals, teams, and organizations.


    We met when Sarah was giving a presentation on “Sustaining Success through Mindfulness, Optimism, Resilience and Grit.”  I was especially interested around the topic of resilience and grit and how Millennials fit into the equation.  Do we have resilience and grit as a generation?  Most older generations would argue that these core elements are lacking in this generation?  Can we build grit and resilience?

    American True Grit - How We Lost It, How We Can Get It Back

    in Politics

    The character Rooster Cogburn certainly had True Grit, but so did the majority of Americans in our history.


    Unfortunately, the well-known American True Grit; our courage, honesty, common sense and heartiness have virtually disappeared from most Americans in the 21st Century.


    We are no longer the United States of the Minutemen, the Cowboy, The Boys of Pointe Du Hoc, the Mountain Men and Merrill’s Marauders.


    Where is the America of Jim Bowie, Jedediah Smith, Wyatt Earp, George Patton, Chesty Puller, Teddy Roosevelt, Molly Pitcher, Rosie the Riveter and millions of anonymous, tough, brave, resourceful heroes who built this great country?


    America of 2016 is the nation of overweight kids, soccer moms, socialist public school administrators who ban dodge ball, metrosexual men; transgender TV stars, helicopter parents and college kids who need safe spaces with Play Doh.


    On the Thursday, January 21, 2016 edition of the Ray Starmann Show, Ray discusses how Americans have lost their True Grit and how we can get it back. Ray also covers the ongoing Hillary Email Scandal and other news of the day.

Quite the opposite is true, for when you "care where you care", you show up, speak up, and stand up for what you care about. Women can often feel overwhelmed by their sensitivity and our grace as stewards for all life. And, when you trust where you care, take action in alignment with your care, you feel better and make a difference.


    Learn how to engage your grace and your grit as a woman, noble in your role as grace on earth. You will not only feel better about yourself, you will begin to apply your blessings as a woman.
