Living Your Dreams

Last week, Wally Funk joined Jeff Bezos in space. There’s been a lot of press about how she was part of the Mercury 13; but there is so much more to her story. At 17, she crushed two vertebrae in a skiing accident and was told she would never walk again. She didn’t consider that…

Lift Your Creativity

As you may know by now, the LAITHOS partners—ME, Jen, and I—rotate responsibility each week for sharing our perspectives on leadership impact. This was my week and, as I opened my computer, that paralyzing “writer’s block” descended upon me. I racked my brain to find what I considered a topic that hadn’t been covered. After…

Using Lightness in Leadership

Lightness, laughter, and levity can be useful in business. “Laughter relieves stress and boredom, boosts engagement and well-being, and spurs not only creativity and collaboration but also analytic precision and productivity” as Harvard Business Review highlights, citing research by serious institutions like MIT and Wharton. However, lightness – or lightheartedness – does not always show up…

Valued Lessons

Our experiences shape who we are. Have you ever reflected on what makes you the leader you are today? As I look back, I have plenty of “real life” experiences — and there are times when experiential learning had a tremendous impact on my growth. As I reflected on the leadership lessons which had the…

I’ve Made Up My Mind

Earlier this year, my husband, Doug, and I made a life-changing decision to move from Atlanta to Sarasota. Since then, our time has been nearly consumed with a variety of “to do” lists – from readying the Georgia house for sale, to determining what to downsize, to figuring out the multiple redesign options for the…

As a teenager: I looked nothing like the people around me in Sri Lanka, and often felt like an outcast. As an adult: I have worked in organizations dominated by traditional thinking, where my…

Flourishing in Life

While clearing the clutter in my office, I came across a piece of paper with the word flourish written across it. Underneath were the words “to grow intellectually, socially and emotionally and to translate this growth into action, habit, and purpose.” It stopped me dead in my tracks. I’m a great believer in lessons appearing…

Life = Legacy

There have been several celebrations in my family this past week:  great-niece Charlotte turned one year old; sister-in-law Janet and brother-in-law Brian turned a few years more than Charlotte; and about 150 people are gathering in Wisconsin to celebrate the life of Marian Croak, who lived 96 vibrant years. As a mother of eight, grandmother…

Acknowledging the Overwhelm

A different kind of overwhelm seems to be setting in for some right now with work. Requests from customers to meet in-person again, having to show up in the office full bore, added traffic doubling some commute times…you name it. If you are feeling extra exhausted lately, you are not alone. The mental toll from…

Hit <PAUSE>

Talking to peers and co-workers, it seems most of us are experiencing a mixture of relief and fear when we look forward to what’s next. That’s natural. And, there’s a lot to be learned if we take the opportunity to hit <PAUSE> and examine our thoughts around what’s been happening and what is possible. In…
