Do More Than Dress the Part

When corporate clients say they want to be coached for (greater) executive presence, my first question is “what does that mean to you?” Then come either the blank stares or a laundry list of tactical things – change the way they dress; shift their tone and/or cadence of speech; change their presentation style. More often…

Conversations with Integrity

In recent weeks, my husband Perry and I have had more conversations than normal. When all was “right” with the world—or so we mistakenly thought—things were fairly quiet in Jenuwin Perrydise, the name we affectionately call our humble abode. However, lately we have been engrossed in dialogue about injustice and our future. We wonder what…

Setting Up for Success

I once took a program management course where the instructor said, “If you can’t change unrealistic objectives and deadlines, accept them and start looking for another job.” While I certainly understand where he was coming from, in most cases, it’s really not advice to follow. How many of you are faced with goals you can’t…

Step Up to the Void

When I was in ninth grade, I tried out for “Oliver”. Excited at the possibility of playing a role, I stepped out onto the stage to audition. And… I froze and quickly decided that the props crew was where I belonged. It wasn’t until my 30s that I was able to stand in front of…

The Buzz of Leadership

Do as I say, not as I do…that is the sound of integrity missing, not showing up where it is needed. Right now, there are numerous examples of this (masks, murders, and mayhem). In contrast, Spring in the Northern Hemisphere has me seeing buzzing bees and floral blooms everywhere. This time of ‘awakening’ offers many…

Food for Thought

My husband, Doug, is not a picky eater and I am not a skilled cook. He eats anything I make, which isn’t very often. One time I misread my mom’s meatloaf recipe and put in two tablespoons of salt instead of 2 teaspoons. In spite of my asking if it was too salty – it…

Help! I Need Someone

I am blessed to have three nieces and a nephew in my life, along with the addition of twin great-nieces two years ago. With the excitement of a third great-niece any day now, I’ve been thinking about the first years of their early lives. While each had unique characteristics and special qualities, there were two…

Go Ahead: Be Bored and Do Chaos

Lately, some people I speak with say they are bored due to the Coronavirus pandemic keeping many of us at home. On the flip side, I know other people’s lives are quite chaotic right now. Whichever you are experiencing, you may be asking yourself, “When it will change?” Despite what is in front of us,…

Knocking Down Silos

Many of us are still sheltering in place and relying on technology to connect us. In some ways, the challenge of crossing boundaries is easier because we are eager to talk to someone other than the folks with whom we are sheltering. On the flip side, we’ve narrowed our audiences and our conversations to the…

I’m My Own Worst Enemy

It’s Monday morning and, as is our normal practice, this blog should already be in publication mode for Tuesday’s release. In fact, I should have written it a couple of weeks ago in order to avoid those hair-on-fire feelings and the last-minute requests of others who help support this weekly sharing. Today certainly isn’t the…
