Last week, I presented a workshop for B.I.G. – Believe. Inspire. Grow, a women’s empowerment network providing women with the inspiration, community, and tools to help them become…
Leadership Lesson: Great interviewing mirrors what we do everyday, when we demonstrate to others the quality of our work, skill, and character.
Keep this in mind: There is no such thing as perfection when it comes to making an impression of any kind, especially during an interview.
Much in the same way we might expend too much energy fighting off fear…
Are you a hypocrite?
Yes, that’s a real question that seeks an honest and self-reflective response. Whether it’s in your work or personal life, do you ask others to do things you won’t? Or, conversely, do ask others not to do something you do?
Oftentimes, we look at situations that we’re involved in, whether in life or at work, with the ultimate hope that they’ll benefit…
Leadership Lesson: Leadership at any level should include the integrity to stand up against something you don’t believe in, no matter how unpopular the insight might seem and who you might have to tell.
What does it take for you to stand up to a leader or a boss who keeps making missteps?
Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that in this case,…
Leadership Lesson: You need to understand that there’s a difference between quitting and situations where you’re doing what’s right for you, learning from what you’ve experienced to move forward.
Be honest: Are you a quitter?
Do you give up on things? Do you walk away from things? Do you just say to yourself “This isn’t for me” or “I can’t do this”?
Some people would say that to separate yourself from an…
Hillary Clinton is continuing to make more appearances since having lost the Presidential Election in November to Donald Trump.
Her supporters are happy to see her and get her take on the first 100 days of the new administration. And yet others are quick to point out that she and other older Democrats need to step out of the spotlight to make way for a younger,…
How often do you get opportunities to demonstrate who you are and what you’re capable of?
Opportunities, in and of themselves, can be tricky as life is about taking the opportunities which you’re given at some points in time while making opportunities for yourself at others.
Too many people wait for opportunities to be presented instead of working around life and trying to…
Leadership Lesson: Make sure you don’t allow others to take anything away from you. Period.
Are you allowing others to dictate the course of your leadership and professional development? The development of those abilities and skills may be more out of your control than you know or would prefer.
But that’s only if you let it be that way.
These types of developments are not limited to the proactive steps you’re taking…
So much can be accomplished by a leader. So much action can be taken, guidance provided, and so many goals achieved for their stakeholders.
But many leaders have different styles for reaching their accomplishments, utilizing available resources, and emboldening those in their environment.
Great leaders take in a global assessment of both the outside world and the internal dynamic of their workplace or environment but when it comes to the internal assessment, the best…
Leadership Lesson: It’s a mistake to only live and work in reactive mode to everything around us, when we should be working to prepare as best as possible to navigate our environments.
Leadership is about taking in and utilizing the resources around you, whether it is for a cause or mission greater than yourself, or for your own development.
The tools you need are there for the taking. It’s…
Every so often society endures the passing of an icon–someone whose absence makes the world feel like it’s lost a bit of its luster and faded in energy.
These icons are people who seemed to not only stray from the script of what society expected of them, but took the script, incinerated it, and set out to lay out their own path for…
Leadership Lesson: It’s important for us to all understand where it is that confidence comes from, so that we don’t put some undo pressure on ourselves to find something extraordinary outside of ourselves before pushing forward toward what we want.
There are many interpretations of what confidence might be, but there is one misconception that exists in the connection between confidence and insecurity: Many believe that a confident person does not…
To you, as a graduate, here is a tip of tremendous value I can provide to you: Challenge Me.
Before we get to why, let me offer you congratulations on your graduation! This is a tremendous achievement in and of itself, but even more tremendous if you do all that you can to build off of it.
Whether it’s a high school diploma, or…
Leadership Lesson: Take stock of all the positive things you do, both big and small. Don’t wait for something monumental to happen to celebrate your abilities.
Much in the same way society needs to rethink “failure,” it also needs to redefine success.
This great blog post on the Huffington Post is a rare gem that doesn’t just tell us how we should reach some…
As we develop and grow, there are instances where we need to take risks and step out of our comfort zone. Sometimes, we’re held back and inhibited by fears that in turn limit those development and growth efforts. But if we hold back in the face of fear, we’re holding back from both giving and achieving our best.

Leadership Lesson: There can be no growth or development forward if you’re tolerating too much, unwisely using your precious resources, including energy and reputation, to hold things together or keep appearances. #leadership #coaching #relationships ow.ly/YwgW30pnARA
Some quotes can speak to us directly. If there are none that have spoken to you, or driven you to push forward, what advice received in your own experience has motivated you to push forward with everything you have? #motivation #drive #success #coaching ow.ly/lSp030mzXov
@VPsalesBD @AdamMGrant @seanmlandry It's important to define 1:1. They don't necessarily lead to micromanagement. The best ones I've seen are more, "What are you up to? What do you need? What's your plan going forward? Ok, after all that, here's what I can suggest. Let me know what you need before our next 1:1."
My top tip: Before you declare a major, go interview 5 people in the field you'd like to enter after graduation. The industry landscape will shift, but try to get a sense of what awaits you -- the good and the bad. #college #careers #development #life ow.ly/csLo30plqA5
We all need to remember: Just because something isn’t an issue to a leader, doesn’t mean others don’t consider it an issue. A leader should address all concerns, not just their own. #leadership #management #development #politics ow.ly/Nqk530plaHF
A big thank you to the those I’ve met in recent years who exemplify this mindset. Seeing you in action, making your world, organizations, and businesses what you want them to be, is inspiring. #business #leadership #coaching #entrepreneur ow.ly/givb30mG9vd
Leadership Lesson: We need to understand what it is that keeps us repeating those behaviors, habits, and practices that keep us from our best development and goals. Is it Fear? Complacency? Distraction? Tradition? #fear #legacy #development #leadership ow.ly/ccRg50vnrgy
There IS a huge difference between shyness and introversion. Most times, understanding the root of how you approach life, work, projects, and people, helps you work to harness it, refine it, to make it work for you. #introversion #shyness #development ow.ly/d7zC30kP0nv
What do you think? What have you seen? How much have you demonstrated when you've interviewed? Where is that sweet spot between This is who I am and This is what I can do for you? Resume alone is not enough. #interview #hiring #coaching #success ow.ly/FrGi30pfvn9
In our relationships, whether in work, business, or personal, we tend to talk about things that impact the everyday. But rarely do we speak about our relationships with the depth that underpins a eulogy. #appreciation #development #relationships #life ow.ly/Dbz550veyBC
