Are You In? Let’s Draft!

Posted by on Jul 17, 2014 | No Comments

I love the concept of “drafting”.  My husband Tim has done multiple long-distance bike rides and ever since I learned about drafting I’ve been fascinated by it.  To draft, there has to be someone leading – you cannot draft alone.  The riders following the leader of the pack use the leader’s energy to cut the […]

The Impact Your Presence Can Have (Part 2)

Posted by on Aug 28, 2013 | 4 Comments

Yesterday I wrote about two very different leaders (you can catch up on that blog post here).  The first leader had the uncanny ability to disengage a room full of people managers in an instant.  The second leader invested about 30 minutes of his time to ignite a passion for growth, build trust, and plant […]

The Impact Your Presence Can Have (Part I)

Awhile back I was leading sessions for small company that had recently been acquired by a large multinational based in France.  There were culture issues, communication issues, and because of the vast amount of change they were experiencing, fear and mistrust were rampant.  Overnight this small band of technical leaders that had proudly grown their […]

I’ve had the privilege to work with a lot of senior executives who have found themselves in transition.  Amazing men and women who have been in workforce 20 – 30 years, and for a multitude of reasons have found themselves, often for the first time in their careers, looking for “what’s next”.

Last day of vacation.  This has been my view in the mornings, sitting on the deck writing my blog.  I sit here this morning, savoring the moment.  Such beauty.  I want to take it all in.  The salty-briny smell from the water infusing the air, the wind chimes tinkling in the breeze, how delicious hot […]

What Do You Stand For?

Imagine that there is a big dart board about 30 feet in front of you.  You are blindfolded.  What are your chances of hitting the bullseye?  Unless you are a world-champion dart player, I suspect you might have difficulty. Now, imagine the same dart board looms in front of you and you take the blindfold […]

Super Objective Spotlight (featuring Brian Silvernell)

I would have to say that the simple exercise of coming up with a “Super Objective” was anything but simple.  When I first arrived for my Onstage Leadership seminar, this was the last thing on my mind.  I was certain that I was to leave the theater having learned to own the spotlight and captivate […]

In this world where we’re going a million miles an hour and we’re plugged in 24/7, how many of you find it difficult to really slow down and connect?  Connect to the people you care about most?  Connect to yourself and find a way to hear your own voice in the cacophony that is life?  […]
