About Vicki L Flaherty

I am most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing, gardening, photography, or my work. Running and yoga enrich my being. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I find a special joy in helping people succeed. I’ve done something valuable when I’ve helped a colleague or friend see their brilliance and express their full potential. I have awesome opportunities to do this as an industrial/organizational psychologist through leadership, mentoring, coaching, career and other talent programs. As I've focused on living more mindfully, I've found special joy in expressing myself through poetry and photography, and in truly being in relationship with those I meet along my journey.

  1. An unsettling quote. Sometimes, known strategies can get you over the rough spots. What does this quote mean to you?


    • Lorianne, you’ve just seen the downside of scheduling blog posts and letting them run. I certainly wouldn’t have picked this one to share if I were doing it today. The turbulence around us is very unsettling. Your point is well taken that known strategies can get you through difficulties – and, for true manifestation of something different, opening our minds in new ways with new possibilities can be helpful.
