Leadership Foundations: Three critical practices

Whether a person’s leadership is being developed or expressed in an organization, at home, in her or his community, or—as some colleagues and I are experiencing—in a doctoral program, embracing a holistic practice of “being” yields significant benefits. Attending to our health undergirds our interactions with others. Weaving in dimensions of body, mind and spirit [...]

Transformation in 16 Steps

As part of the effort, I used Lynne McTaggart's Mental Blueprints (chapter 9 of The Intention Experiment: Using Your Thoughts to Change Your Life and the World) [affiliate]. McTaggart describes a process of mental [...]

Pause here. It’s not just for effect.

I read Cashman’s Leadership from the Inside Out: Becoming a Leader for Life [affiliate] for the first time about a decade ago. In this prior work, Cashman shares theory and process for developing as an authentic leader. I confess: I’ve only read reviews and book summaries so far on “Pause,” and gave it a quick scan after ordering [...]

The Destiny of Leadership Legacy

Long before Sheryl Sandberg’s statistics on the abysmal representation of women in top leadership roles moved into open conversation, Margaret Thatcher offered inspiration to women beyond the boundaries of the United Kingdom. Defying convention from her earliest career, Margaret [...]

Leaning In Dialogues and Gender Difference in Destiny

I find the current discussion on the topic of women’s choices and career advancement a fascinating sideline experience. Observing from the sidelines, as opposed to stepping out on the field, is exactly the type of feminine choice women make, according to what I’ve read of Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead [affiliate]. Sandberg isn’t [...]

Why “Destiny?”

The meaning we assign to words reflects myriad images and snippets of information we associate from prior exposure and reading. Our assigned meaning influences our choice of words when we set about to communicate. The question then arises, what underlies my selection of “destiny” to include in various elements of the blog and website? In some stories, we might [...]

Healthy heuristics? Leadership and the influence of habit

In the absence of reflective challenge, leaders may abdicate critical thinking and decision processes to faulty heuristics. Exploration of the science underlying thinking abounds, including Kahneman's Thinking, Fast and Slow [affiliate] and Ariely's Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions [affiliate]. Another heuristic-reliant activity involves the concept of habit. In The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We [...]

Wisdom 2.0

A favorite phrase from my explorations of Wisdom 2.0 is the “conscious use of technology.” Technology increasingly infiltrates our daily life; I know only a few individuals who intentionally limit any intrusion from digital devices: no cell phones, no tablets, no iPods. At the opposite end of the spectrum, and far easier to identify, we find individuals who allow devices [...]

Community as Transformative Experience

Contemplating "community," per the invitation in the inaugural post, I don't imagine the effort of a static team accomplishing a specific, directed task. Instead, I envision an evolving collective with shared purpose . . . exploring, collaborating, creating. As time passes, the whole connects and contributes to an emerging product.   My most recent research involves exploring the occurrence and nature of [...]
