Women Leaders: Why We Need Them; How to Be One!

Learning to be a great leader takes training.  There are countless leadership training courses, classes, videos, books and even degrees available for people who truly want to be great leaders.  Much of the training available is excellent; especially when looking for training from some of the icons of leadership such as Darren Hardy, Dale Carnegie, Tony Robbins and more (I am sorry if I left out your favorite this time around). When you look at the majority of the great training out there, it was developed by men for men. Women can still use it, of course, but very little of it addresses the...

Laugh Lines of Graceful Distinction

I don’t mean to discount anyone who is wrestling with the aging process or anyone who is really truly vested in never looking like they have been on the planet as long as they truly have…but I had an experience yesterday that continues to play in my mind and now I will write it here so it can leave me alone. I have crows feet on my face.  On each outside corner of my eyes are lines.  They are deep.  They don’t go away when my face is relaxed.  They get very deep when I am talking, or laughing.  I laugh a lot.  My lines are permanent.  I can’t see them unless I am in...

Are You Scared Enough?

Are You Scared Enough?

There is something amazing about working with a highly skilled coach whose focus and purpose is to help you find clarity, purpose and momentum to truly achieve what you dream of.  Yes, I know, I am coach, but I am actually not talking about myself here.  I believe that every good leader and every great coach does even better when they have a highly skilled and trusted coach of their own.  If there is anything I have learned about leadership in these past several years, it is to not lead alone. So, this brings me to the question at the top of this page.  It is a question that I was asked...

Leading through Service

servant leadership students Effective, strong leaders are not what they used to be.  That is in no way, shape or form meant as a complaint…it is a statement of the evolution of the leadership and the pathway to a better world. Leadership, like pretty much everything else, has changed over time in many parts of the world.  Strong leaders used to lead firmly from the top.  There was a clear and enforced heirachy of who was in charge and whose orders were to be followed.  Leaders led by giving orders with or without divulging the details of why, and everyone “under” them...

Living as Part of the Solution

Living as Part of the Solution

“If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.” I remember hearing that a long, long time ago and feeling the intended spark of responsibility start to grow within me.  It was the time that I started to realize that being part of the solution required something of me – it required more than a conscious choice; it demanded action.  Doing nothing was part of the problem.  It is not enough to mindfully do nothing to contribute to the problem.  I mindfully do not take more than my share, do not intentionally hurt others, do not throw trash on the ground, do...
