Waiting for the Muck to Settle

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 | No Comments

My life keeps dishing out proof that the more I learn, the more I realize I need to learn – and it’s a very uncomfortable place to be.  It’s so much more fun when you feel like you’ve got all the answers, don’t you think?  My husband (the innovation-guy) and I were talking about the […]

Curiosity – The Gateway to Understanding

Posted by on Apr 9, 2014 | No Comments

Last night, when I jumped on Twitter for the first time in ages, as I was scrolling down the list of articles I passed one tweeted by the Huffington Post that read, “Why you should NEVER buy garlic in a jar”.   I kept scrolling.  I didn’t want to read it.  You see, I admittedly, buy […]

The Responsibility of Leadership

Posted by on Apr 8, 2014 | 2 Comments

An article on the Nine CEO’s With the Worst Reputations is making the rounds this morning on Yahoo!  Now, to be honest, I don’t know how solid this data really is, as it was comprised from mining employee reviews on Glassdoor (and you and I both know that, notoriously, people only review things when they’re […]

Fighting Incongruencies

Posted by on Apr 7, 2014 | No Comments

People talk about the “terrible twos”, but there was nothing terrible about “two” for our family.  Two was easy.  Jeremy would joyfully do whatever we asked.  He would eat what we put in front of him.  Pick up his toys without argument or complaint.  We were his heroes.  Then he started to develop free will.

Surprised By Real?

“You were so real!  You were exactly the way you sounded on the phone!” she exclaimed, seeming shocked by her discovery.  “Well…I guess that’s good, right?  I mean, I do teach authentic leadership, it would kind of be a problem if I wasn’t authentic, don’t you think?” We both stood there a bit dazed – […]

You’ll Move Up the Ladder When…

Posted by on Apr 3, 2014 | No Comments

You know when you have the kind of conversation that leaves you glowing afterward?  When you’re talking with someone and the thoughts and ideas are flowing so effortlessly that you wish you had written them down, but you were too engaged to even think about it at the time.  And when the conversation ends you’re […]

Scan Yourself

I woke up this morning feeling like my jaws had been cemented shut.  It hurt to yawn.  I realized that I must have been clenching my teeth again while I slept, an unconscious coping-mechanism in my body’s attempt to manage all the rapid change we’re facing.  As I sit massaging my cheek, at the painful […]

The Madness of Compliance

Posted by on Apr 1, 2014 | No Comments

“Deferred to, agreed with, acquiesced in, who can flourish on such a daily diet of compliance?” the doctor asks. “To be curbed, stood up to, in a word thwarted, exercises the character, elasticates the spirit, makes it more pliant. It’s the want of such exercise that makes rulers rigid.”        – The Madness of King George […]
