Traveling through the wilderness, you learn to be most careful in the transition zones. Stepping off the trail and into the forest, climbing off of rock and onto snow, pushing off from the shores and into the rapids: these are the dangerous moments, when different muscles must be engaged and different forms of awareness are required.
The same is true during transition times in our individual lives, and in our organizations and communities. Yet few of us receive the toolbox needed to navigate gracefully through the changing terrain of our lives and our world.
This is what I offer. For over twenty years, I have been a student and teacher of transitions times, and helping guide individuals, organizations, and communities to reach their next stage of growth.
"Darcy is the kind of person who walks quietly into a room. She talks to one person at a time and uses one word at a time. When she listens, you feel heard. She does not rush away, nor does she stay too long. When you work with Darcy, you learn to cherish the time you have. You learn from her what it means to give someone your full attention. All communication from Darcy really says: you matter." Janne Pate, Academic Coordinator, Pacific Quest
