Reflections on a Decade

Coming soon…

Let’s Be Real

We have been encouraged to be authentic, to bring our whole selves, to be who we are. In our pursuit to be more effective leaders, we are invited to show the courage to be vulnerable. We should be willing to leave our own signature, footprint, fingerprint, and scent on what we do.

Let’s be real and realistic. There are both rewards and risks to be considered in doing this and there are ways to manage and leverage both.

Diversity and Inclusion: How far have we come? How far can we go?

I wrote and submitted my article for this issue before George Floyd whispered his final “I can’t breathe”. Some say our world suddenly changed. Some say not really. I thought and others suggested that I should look at what I said in May and consider how it might be different now.

Drawing Out The Best in You: A Metaphor for Coaching

Coaching involves a blend of modesty and confidence. There are those instances of confidence when a coach asserts they can assess others with a handshake or one critical question and then drive them to change lifelong behaviors by dangling a well-crafted “what’s in it for you” challenge.

A Preview of Leadership: What’s Your Story

Leadership can be defined as the intentional exercise of influence on others. Your leadership style, your leadership signature, is a journey shaped by moments large and small.

Some have obvious significance in the midst of their unfolding. Some are more subtle in their implications and previews of what type of leader you will become.

If you were asked to turn to an early and vivid memory of your leadership journey, what would that be and what would it have foretold?

One of mine involves a playground swing.
