When you know your WHY, your WHAT has more impact.
Living your why will help you get noticed, feel valued, and be more confident in who you are.
Simon Sinek popularized the concept of “start with why” and uses what he calls the Golden Circle to show the importance of this concept.
- WHY is our greater purpose, cause or belief
- HOW are our behaviors and guiding principles that set us apart from others
- WHAT is our function, role, products or services
Most of us know WHAT we do; very few of us know WHY we do it. But when we get clear on our WHY and then HOW we need to show up to live into and further our why, our WHAT becomes easier. This is true for organizations and individuals.
Starting with WHY gives us the clarity and flexibility we need to adapt our WHAT effectively and stay true to who we are.

Some people refer to me as a “PhD with Personality” because I’m energetic, passionate, and I can turn any gathering into a dance party - even virtual gatherings!
Whether I’m delivering a virtual workshop, keynote address or a multi-day workshop, I invite people to challenge their assumptions, embrace some discomfort, re-imagine and begin to pave the path to a different future where we can all show up as fully human leaders.
But if you want substance, authenticity, emotion, critical thinking, and a sustainable path forward, I’d love to chat more. I interweave research with stories and reflection questions to foster moments of insight for people so they can walk away with a concrete next step for making a positive impact at work and at home. Nothing lights me up more than seeing people have new insights they can apply to get out of their own way and call themselves and others to greatness.

“Rosie is a clear and effective communicator who brings her fun, personable attitude into the room. This workshop allowed me to better understand my “WHY” type and how to identify it in others. I loved the exercises at the end that tied it in with Dare to Lead values and the Purpose pillar of Conscious Capitalism. I highly recommend this workshop!”
Christina Rossini (CEO, Inissor International Holdings)
“I’ve done a lot of why-related searching, exercises and inventory, and the workbook you took us through with the WHY Institute assessment cut through to the essential much quicker than I was expecting. This was a thorough, thoughtful, and efficient way to clarify our own personal/business WHYs, WHATs and HOWs.”
