Albuquerque, NM, US
Living under a name that translates to fierce warrior in Hungarian can send many messages to a young girl transitioning from a host of divergent cultures throughout her life. For Ildi, it meant that success best happens when it is not built alone. Through a fierce and colorful past that began in South Africa, followed by part of her life in Hungary and then tiny Socorro, New Mexico, Ildis greatest philosophies were to listen to your gut, build a culture you believe in, and maintain a posture that promotes further enrichment. She now translates those life lessons into her Tribal Abundance program, where the concept of collaboration and connection is taught as a framework for ensuring success through interpersonal networks. She designed the program herself, basing the concepts on the anthropological research of Colin Turnbull, who studied two very different tribes and how their approaches to abundance and scarcity resulted in two very different mindsets, usage of resources, and consequences. Not only does Ildi live by the tenets of paying it forward, but she has proven it to be a legitimate principle through a community network that has repaid her with rewarding civic and volunteer connections. Ildi is an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) as well as a Certified Performance Technologist (CPT). She is the recipient of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) Award of Excellence for instructional design, and holds a Masters degree in Organizational Learning and Instructional Technologies from the University of New Mexico. Ildis gift back to the community is realized through several volunteer activities, including board positions and committee involvement on the New Mexico chapter of the International Coach Federation, and Polka Dot Powerhouse. When not coaching or consulting, she balances her life by spending time with her matched little sister from Big Brothers Big Sisters. She also enjoys digging in her garden and enjoying life from her backyard patio, or going for walks with her husband, tending to two rescue dogs that watch her every move, and a wayward cat that lives on her front porch.

Sound familiar? When I talk to coaches and consultants who want to create courses, they often have many wonderful ideas about what courses to create. They’ve written books, articles, created workshops, designed signature programs, developed a process, system or methodology that helps them and their clients build their business, increase sales, conquer limiting beliefs, and more. In fact, it’s a bit overwhelming!

First Who, Then What

Imagine you’re the director of a film.  It’s expected to be a Hollywood blockbuster and make millions at the box office.  Who will you cast in the lead role? Will you choose just any actor who has taken an acting class and maybe performed in one community theatre production? Or will you cast someone who …Read More about First Who, Then What
