Recently a friend was being interviewed on a podcast about her services which support and celebrate changemakers in the world.  The host asked the audience if her services were a “nice to have” or a “need to have.”  The responses were varied, but they leaned heavily toward the “nice to have” side of the scorecard.

We often see social impact programs relegated to the passionless friends only ca...

Not a day goes by that we aren’t faced with ethical dilemmas.  Even if the elephant isn’t sitting in the middle of our living room, we are inundated every waking moment with stories that go to the heart of what we believe is right or wrong.  Our ethics are the principles that govern our behavior or align with how an activity is conducted.  Just as every individual has ethical principles, so do bus...

Compliance programs for small businesses don’t need to be complicated, overly formal or expensive.  There is no need to hire a dedicated staff of internal compliance professionals.  However, you should seek expert advice as you develop your program because Federal regulations of the U.S. Sentencing Commission require that a business maintain an effective compliance program to qualify for steeply r...

Father’s Day is upon us and though mine is no longer at my side, I am grateful for the strength and wisdom he shared with me.  As I look at my little grandson, I wonder what lies ahead for him and how he will navigate the roles that have historically been assigned to men.  Somehow, despite the volcanic-like eruptions that are causing cultural shifts, rocking our world and testing our beliefs, I ha...

It’s really not a lot of fluff … or mumbo jumbo … or fairy dust.  Yet, it’s a mystery to many. 

For a woman who has spent her entire life as an attorney and business executive in both the business and nonprofit worlds, I’m stumbling.  I’m speaking a new language to many, as foreign as the “legalese” that I had to educate myself out of.  My whole life has been about words and messaging and yet,...

I’m not the first person who has scratched my head in complete bewilderment when there are too many cooks in the proverbial kitchen and asked, “Who’s on first?”, “Who is rowing this boat?” or “Who the heck is the decision maker?!”

Where does the buck stop at your place of business, at the organizations you volunteer with, at your children’s school or right at home?  At the end of the day, each of u...

The waters are churning with “movements.”  From trends to full bore social activism, a bird’s eye view of our planet would show a swirl of activity, a wobbling on its axis.

Who could have guessed that when the Fifth Dimension sang about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, that today, the destination is more critical than words in a catchy song - “Harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abound...

Have you ever worked for a CEO that created intense competition among the leadership team? Or, a manager that hired two people to do the same job and didn’t tell them that his intention was to keep one and fire the other based on results.

I have very clear memories of one CEO I reported to that was so insecure he gave each person on the leadership team just one piece of critical information.  Only...

The secrets to any successful marriage or partnership are fairly basic.  The partners start with a shared vision and mission, setting goals for their union, while they respect their individual needs.  They make sure that they understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses and how to support both.  They look at problem areas, figure out workarounds, handle disagreements early on and decide who is...

You would have to be living under a rock if the word “sustainability” has not crossed your path.  Or, you have an inkling of what it means, but not a clue what to do about it other than cart the recycle bin out to the curb each week full of boxes and leftover plastic containers. That means you are trying right?  Wrong …

It means you are keeping up with the neighbors.  But, what about your busi...
