There is so much noise in our environments. Whether this noise is reflected in the inability to communicate, the wrong fashion of communicating, or allowing too much emotion into our communication, nothing moves forward…

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick posted a “Profound Apology” on the company’s website to atone for or, at least, begin atoning for his behavior in a video which surfaced of him berating an Uber driver, while he was a fare in the man’s car, who had challenged him on the company’s policies which…
Are you open to dialogue with a staunchly entrenched opponent or do you just ignore them?
Notoriously liberal comedian and political TV host Bill Maher sat down with alt-right poster boy Milo Yiannopoulis on the former’s HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher in a meeting of ideological extremes brought together by Maher’s push to get liberals to open up to…
OK. Maybe not a teacher, as teachers usually teach lessons that we need and should learn. But he does teach us…to be aware. He doesn’t do it through the example he sets of his own self-awareness but by the ability of awareness that he lacks.
By watching him we learn that AWARENESS IS EVERYTHING.
Lessons in leadership, character and integrity are everywhere. Keep an eye out for them.
We can learn from the good and positive, as well as the bad and negative. We can learn from others’ examples in order to learn both what to do and what to avoid.
We need look no further than Donald Trump and
Leadership Lesson: We need to step back and see from the outside how things are truly playing out, so that we’re not blinded by the emotion from within our role.
The world as we know it is seemingly deteriorating, falling apart as the divisions between the groups of our fellow men, women and children continue to grow.
Leadership Lesson: It’s important to consider how you recognize and utilize the emotions you see and can interpret in your environment, using them to the workplace’s advantage and not only for your benefit.
Since its first mention in the leadership development field, Emotional Intelligence (or “EQ” for “Emotional Quotient”) has been seen as the someone’s ability to understand and read their environment with clear thinking so as to react without…
What a way to come back! I had seen somewhere on TV that Kelly Ripa, being blind-sided by an announcement that Michael Strahan, her full-time co-host of three-and-a-half years, was leaving in the fall to pursue a full-time stint on Good Morning America, was a no-show a day after the announcement.
Apparently she had not been told ahead of time of Strahan’s future departure and was…
Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders demonstrate the phenomenon perfectly of how the criteria for a leader might shift so drastically.
Their backers, up until Trump and Sanders’ latest appearance on the national stage, would have traditionally backed other candidates in these respective parties, seeking those whose message aligned and reconciled closest to their own concerns, but it has now taken angered, outright disappointment, and…
Sometimes, you just have to let it out, expressing what’s on your mind. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
Common practice is to err on the side of caution, which is fine, but many do it to the point of paralysis. This inhibition stems from a misconception that a leader always has to be composed and…
As the field and discipline of leadership has evolved, students of its tenets have come to understand that leadership is less about the leader herself and more about what she provides for others. Understanding. Support. Education. These are but a few of the various pillars upon which leadership is built.
Another key practice a leader needs to include in her toolbox is reassurance. The role…
Leadership Lesson: Merely demanding an apology from someone, in response to an offensive action, with no other discussion or connection, doesn’t really achieve as much as one would think.
There should be no apology sought of Trump for what he has said about Muslims, among other indiscretions he’s been guilty of during his Presidential nomination campaign.
This does not mean what he said is right or not reprehensible.
Whether you are entering a new endeavor or navigating your established workplace, be aware of and try to resist falling into the quick sand of environments which are perpetuated by using the same approach without any adjustment in course or method.
Because they don’t adjust, these environments tend to miss out on and lack the results that could be possible for all stakeholders and parties involved…
Racial tensions have grown in the United States at an alarming and seemingly exponential rate in the last year. Stories have continued to reach the headlines on a regular basis with the tension and public outcry the same but with a different locations as the backdrop.
The irony in one particular story in this turbulent year, from the University of…
Bill George, a Senior Fellow at the Harvard Business school wrote this post on the topic of Overcoming the Leadership of Loneliness.
George’s post brings up a great point we mostly hear in a misquoted quote. “Heavy is the head that wears the crown,” is what most people say but the correct quote is, “Uneasy lies the head that wears…
