Discrimination is pervasive and is disguised throughout our days so cleverly that often it moves sight unseen, chipping away at the hearts of its victims, changing who they are and who they might have become without its’ presence.Like you, I have witnessed it more times than I care to admit and missed too many other moments that should have been painfully obvious.

My first memory of discrimination...

Gotta confess … I don’t get it.  At one of the most crucial times in our country to advance women into leadership roles, to shift the balance of power in both our government and corporate sectors, our social media feeds are jammed up with pretty little black and white selfies and hashtags suggesting we have accepted some type of challenge, supporting other women (#Challenge Accepted; #WomenSupport...

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the word resilience.  When a person experiences challenging circumstances and is able to recover quickly, we view them as tough or hardy with an extra dose of the rebound gene, a quality we admire.

These days, in the midst of a pandemic, with so much of our lives feeling unfamiliar, we are all attending a masterclass in resilience.   Our shopping, cleaning, per...

There was a time when I was clear about the meaning of leadership, in all its forms.  In high school we learned about dictators, kings and queens, fascists, communists, socialists and capitalists.  The word became trendy and we started hearing about servant leaders and transformational leaders which sounded great in theory.  But, I dare say that even Hitler was a transformational leader – nothing...

Mother’s Day is around the corner and for most, it will be unlike any we have experienced before.  Some of us will have a full nest with students who have returned home jarring our well-oiled routines, others will feel a deep sense of loneliness because of the inability to spend time with offspring or parents.

Regardless of how this day unfolds, I find that as it approaches, I always reflect about...

I was asked recently to write a precise description of what a perfect day would look like for me.  With luck and the grace of God, one that I could repeat daily, feeling a sense of excitement with the dawn of each day and an even greater sense of peace and fulfillment each night as I close my eyes.  I have struggled with this.

The process of creative visualization is not new.  The Roman states...

Recently, I’ve been hearing the word recalibrate used a lot as people are dislodged from their comfort zones into complete uncertainty.  It’s been going on for months, long before COVID-19 but, much of it concerned topics that many had no personal experience with.  And, when an issue doesn’t touch you or someone you know, when it’s not up front and center in your life, it can be hard to relate to...

And here we are again - talking about readiness, reviewing our ability to weather unpredictable challenges that show up, generally from external sources.  They could be weather related (floods, fires, hurricanes), lawsuits (unhappy shareholders, injury), or … unwanted, unexplainable viruses that may be affecting supply chain, staffing and sales.  All of these things impact our ability to have a su...

I don’t wig out very often but generally it’s a scene out of The Titanic, and I don’t mean the ship capsizing scene.  Nope, I’m talking about the scene when Rose looks at herself in the recovered mirror from yesteryear and says “the reflection has changed a bit...”

I’m absolutely convinced that we need to stay in the outer banks, always out of our comfort zone, to keep us moving forward, growing in...

December 31, 2019

Last day of the year and this is what the rumble in the jungle sounds like on many fronts:

“Good riddance – 2019 was just the pits!”

“Worked my butt off but did not reach my goals … sigh...”

“Thank goodness 2020 arrives in hours – another chance to do it right.”

Pressure on all fronts.  The daily “Hire me to help you grow your bottom line” emails filling inboxes or Facebook pages for the last six week...
