Generating Career Catapulting Ideas

Kay Fittes, June, 2022

There’s nothing new under the sun!  Or is there?  Women who excel in their careers become idea factories, churning out ideas aplenty.  But sometimes it seems like there is nothing new to be had, all the great ideas have been taken.  Whether you own a business, work in a corporation, or non-profit, it’s essential to continue to generate ideas and solutions.  The key is to say or do it differently!  [Read More]

Creating a Climate for Getting the Juices Flowing

  1. Learn your time zone of brilliance.  Everyone has a time when their creativity is at their peak.  You may have never thought about or acted on this previously.  The problem may be this timeframe conflicts with something else:  time you leave for work; time you are getting children off to daycare; or time your spouse goes to bed.  Remember you don’t have to find that time every day, just when you really want to get the juices flowing.  You will only need to negotiate a change every now and then.  I know that my time zone of brilliance is exceedingly early in the morning.  If I want to tap into my peak creativity, it means being up at 5:00AM!  I may need to have my husband sleep in the guest room!  Somehow my need for brilliance and his need for sleep can collide!

  2. Tap into inspiration.  Something different to spark your juices may be the ticket.  You may want to listen to a Podcast; read a blog, article, or book; watch a YouTube video or a TedTalk; attend a theatrical production.  I came up an inspired “audience involvement activity” by attending a community theatre production where they had put a sign on the back of a dummy.  It worked so well because at that time people were still wary of being touched due to the Pandemic.  The dummy, with the sign, became a stand in for an audience member.  The humor of it worked great and it served the purpose not having to touch a real live human being.

  3. Let your body loose.  Movement can trigger creativity.  Use various kinds of music, walk on a treadmill, walk in nature, drive around, ok, maybe not when gas is $5 a gallon!  Any movement can be a catalyst for innovative ideas.  The key here is not thinking so hard.  Haven’t you noticed some of your best ideas came to you when you were in the shower or washing the dog?  Other activities let our mind wander and retrieve inspired thoughts.

Has your ability to be creative been sucked out of you due to the stress and chaos of the Pandemic?  You are in good company!  Some of my newer clients are representations of that dilemma.  If you would like to explore the value of having a coach work with you to refocus on your career, I have just the ticket!  Email me at or call (513) 561-4288 and we will set up a time for a complimentary 45-minute consultation to determine if we could be a good match to address this problem.

Letter of Commendation 

Kay Fittes was a keynote speaker for our Resilient Entrepreneurs International Toastmasters Club in May of 2022.  Her presentation was engaging and humorous.  Power Up Your Profits With Power Presentations was an attractive workshop title that drew in numerous guests.  The attendees walked away with helpful tips to help them with future presentations.  The following stood out to me:

  • “Shoot yourself in the foot” mistakes you make when presenting
  • Strategies to grab your audience from the first word and
  • Simple tools to energize and engage your audience.

We would love to have Kay back anytime to improve our leadership and communication skills.
