What Does Your Mask Look Like?

Posted by on Jul 31, 2013 | No Comments

I’m always amazed at what my kiddo gives himself permission to do, when he’s hiding behind a mask.  My beautiful little boy put’s on a skeleton mask, and horrific sounds start emanating from his core as he wildly thrashes about trying to scare anyone in his path.   When he was really little, he would just […]

When Onstage Leadership was recommended to me, I chose to sign up because of the respect I have for the friend who suggested it.  I had no idea, however, the impact it would have on me both personally and professionally. For anyone familiar with Simon Sinek’s “golden circle”, I had been searching, and frustrated, with […]

Stuff Happens…

Yesterday I received an email from a potential business colleague profusely apologizing for having to reschedule our call.  Her child was sick, her normal sitter out of town, and she was home beating herself up for not being available. Last week there was a time-zone snafu with another call I had scheduled and the guy […]

For as long as I can remember my Dad has been getting up at 4:30am to read.  He’s reading journal articles, the newspaper, studying with an intensity that few could match.  While he retired quite a few years ago, he keeps himself current on the latest research and still attends association meetings and conferences.  He’s […]

Taking the Leap

Posted by on Jul 26, 2013 | No Comments

I get to be a student today!  I’m very excited.  I love to learn.  About a month and a half ago I signed myself up for a blogging class at the Gotham Writer’s Workshop (don’t you just love that name?).  And then of course I got too impatient to wait until after I took the […]

Getting present for yourself

I’m glad I was watching.  Perched on the sidewalk in front of me this morning was the most glorious butterfly – totally vulnerable and unaware of how close he came to meeting his maker.  Normally I’m walking with purpose, not paying much attention to anything but my thoughts.  But this morning I thought I’d try […]

The ripple effect of reciprocity compounded

I can hear him and picture him, as if he were in the room with me, “You’ve gotta give, give, give before you get, get, get!” I can’t help but smile when I think of Gary.  My whole person lights up.  Gary embodies these words, borrowed from Joe Charbonneau.  They are words he lives by.  […]

Super Objective Spotlight (Featuring Stew Carson)

Thanks to Kimberly and Onstage for the opportunity to kick off the Super Objective Spotlight series! I chuckle sometimes— when I stop to think of how meaningful my Onstage experience has been in my day-to-day life—that I almost didn’t attend Onstage at all (but that’s another story). Anyone who knows me understands what the game […]
