About Us

Hi. I’m Connie K. N. Chang and the Founder of The Unblocked Life™.

I founded this business and created this site to shine a light on the importance of personal leadership. The Unblocked Life is a love of mine.

There’s so much attention on how to lead—people, projects, businesses, where our eyes are seeing out and our minds are on how we can move others. We often forget that leadership starts with ourselves first.

When our management tactics are stale, when the project team that we lead is fraught with anxiety over a work deadline, or when we know we should be publishing more but aren’t, maybe instead of pushing forward we might consider just stopping to take a few deep breaths and listen for what is going on inside ourselves.

The choices I’ve made in my career and what I’m interested in goes back to this idea of personal leadership.

I gravitate toward books that help me understand the meaning of a well-lived life, how fitness and health affect emotional well-being, how habits play a powerful role in our daily lives, the importance of grit and the growth mindset to achieving success, and the way that entrepreneurs and designers go about their work.

I gravitate toward being of service. I care about the people in my community. How are my friends doing? Can I help in some way? Who in my network can lend a hand?

For most of my adult working life I have played a supporting role, albeit an important one, in helping scientists and engineers fund their research ideas, in helping the government evaluate the economic impact of research funding, and in helping new research teams manage their projects or start up their research centers. I feel good when I am of service. I enjoy helping others uncover their dreams and seeing them succeed.

I designed Begin With Ourselves in Mind™: An Unblocked.Life™ Workshop to serve as the trigger to excite you to make the change you wish and lead yourself on a journey to your must do.

Some say that I have an intuitive sense of the thread that can unravel a knotty situation or the spark that can breathe life into a stale project, that I have honed that ability in my advisory and consultancy work with government agencies, universities, and companies. That sounds about right.

I love my work and the people I work with. The theme that consistently runs through my professional life is: Be The Leader You Wish To See™.

I hope you find inspiration here at The Unblocked Life.
