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…

Leading Diversity

As a small girl: I was among the poorest in a wealthy community, getting many of my clothes through charitable donations. 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.

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…

Word Fillers Dilute Your Message

It’s always a joy when I work with great leaders who want to become brilliant ones. There isn’t a definitive list of what defines great vs. brilliant because the delta is unique for each person. That said, there are foundational characteristics of great leaders which we outline in The LAITHOS Way™. For example, great leaders:…

Leadership Lessons from Dog Training

Have you ever been told NOT to do something, and that made you want to do it even more? There is a reason for that: Where you focus your attention is also where you maintain attention. Telling someone NOT to do something literally engages their mind towards the very thing you don’t want them to…

Expanding Your Influence

How do you expand your influence in today’s climate? It seems everywhere we turn we are confronted with contradictory information and opinions set in stone. We can even have a few of our own. It’s a challenge to feel connected as we tiptoe around potentially volatile subjects. And, if we aren’t connected, we have little…

Video Conferencing – Too Much of a Good Thing?

Nobody would have predicted that in less than a year, a certain video conferencing company’s stock would grow about 400% or that its name would evolve into a global, generic verb …“Zoom” is akin to how “Kleenex” is used when people refer to any type of facial tissue. While the pandemic is nothing I want…
