Arlene Cohen Miller

I am the master of my fate and the captain of my soul.  We all are. 

It's easy to buy into the fear and negativity around us that is designed to keep us small. It's not the truth.

We can make our dreams a reality with a burning desire, a definite aim and purpose, and the tenacity and self-determination to start now and keep going.

I believe . . .

I believe that we have two choices in life:  love or fear. Fear keeps us disempowered and small. Love helps us to move mountains.

I believe in the power of love.  I believe that the art of leading is about following the heart.  

 

I believe that great leaders . . .

I believe that great leaders are motivated by love. They inspire us to trust and cooperate with each other.

I believe that great leaders make us feel safe and that we belong.

I believe that great leaders inspire us to be our best by giving us opportunities to learn and grow.  We can try and fail and then try and succeed with a great leader at the helm.

I believe that great leaders inspire loyalty and trust. They create supportive, nurturing environments.  By selflessly giving of themselves, they encourage us to do the same.

I believe that great leaders understand that earning our trust doesn't come from wanting to impress anyone, it comes from choosing to serve those that serve them.

I believe that great leaders are humble, respectful and inclusive.

I believe that great leaders build the loyalty and trust that is fundamental for success by putting their employees first.

I believe that great leaders understand that people come before money; that people-focused companies out perform numbers-focused companies in the long term.

My story . . .

My father was an entrepreneur, a creative risk-taker and out-of-the-box thinker who modeled success for me.  I am so grateful for the loving role he played in my life, and how he supported me to become a lawyer when he thought women belonged in the home. He allowed me to step out of his world view into something new.

Yoga, meditation and mindfulness entered my life over twenty years ago when I became open to change.

I was too injured to run anymore and discovered a new path that supported my physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing.  Over time, I changed my eating habits and started putting foods into my body that nurtured and supported it.  I simplified my life, studied all kinds of alternative healing modalities and broadened my horizons.  I found that life is about continually reviewing what works and what does not, trying on new ideas, being open to new possibilities and allowing change to move through you.

Developing expertise in negotiating, communicating, and relating from the heart became a part of who I am and what I do over time. 

After law school, I represented men, women and children (as a Guardian Ad Litem appointed by the Court) in divorce and child custody litigation.  I later branched out into commercial law, helping businesses collect monies owed to them.  I have always had an internal compass based upon Truth and Justice.  I feel that people deserve to paid for their products and services and that most people want to work something out.

I have always felt that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.  I found that putting this into practice with people who owed my clients money was invaluable to negotiating settlements. People respond favorably to love.

I applied all of these skills, tools and ways of being as a 'rising star' in the Commericial Law League of America (see Testimonials).  During my active years in this national business organization, I learned the joy of giving back along with networking and marketing skills to last a lifetime.  I learned how to bring divergent interests together for the common good by creating a newly formated west-coast meeting that met everyone's social and business needs  (i.e. how to create harmony in challenging situations).

In the process of acquiring the skills, tools and know-how to help others reach and exceed their goals, I created and sold two law firms, one in Ohio and the other Colorado USA.  Owning two law firms, taught me the ins and outs of hiring, firing, managing, expanding and co-creating with a team, ones that work with you to create a common goal.  Management can be a challenging experience: finding the right people, dealing with personality clashes, and being flexible to meet the needs of those who bring value to the business you are creating together.  I am grateful for the experience and richness and diversity it brought into my life.
