Hold the Phone!

Strengths overused become weaknesses?!? What?!?  It’s easy to get derailed by all the advice we are given about how to evolve our leadership. Work on my weaknesses. Work on my strengths. Don’t let my strengths become my weaknesses. As we think about it – knowing our brains are always looking for shortcuts – it can…

To Infinity and Beyond

Last week, the first photos from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope made it back to Earth. If you haven’t seen them yet, stop reading and take a look. As someone who grew up watching Star Trek, it really brings the vastness of space to life. I find it difficult to wrap my brain around the…
