Leadership Blind Spots

Leaders often seek greater clarity of insight to support being more strategic and effective. I recently read authors Jim Haudan's and Rich Berens' book, What Are Your Blind Spots? Conquering the 5 Misconceptions that Hold Leaders Back, to be released October 5th this year. My review covers a “galley” copy of this book, prior to publication. What this [...]

Real Women Real Questions Q2

I love this next question from a WID Leadership Summit* attendee, who wants to know "How to better message and "sell" ideas and solutions to my leadership (as a worker-bee)." We covered some of the technical aspects of presentation development and delivery in the presence-focused session at the event. At the heart of this question, [...]

Real Women Real Questions, Q1

The Women In Defense (WID) Palmetto Chapter hosted a leadership summit towards the end of 2017.

Yes. I Am Asking For It

Let’s talk great feedback. What exactly is “great” feedback? We know it when we hear it, right? Unfortunately, we don’t often get helpful, timely feedback—let alone great feedback. This post reviews potential issues that influence the value of feedback and opportunities for generating and leveraging great feedback. Most of us appreciate hearing when our contributions [...]

Invest in Yourself: 4 Strategies to Elevate Your Leadership

In my mind, I hear a wise influencer’s wry statement: “No change, no change.” Translation: if inputs (person, process, strategy, etc.) don’t change, the outcome will not shift towards desired results. Whether an executive or leader seeks to increase his or her impact, assure organizational objectives, shape—or reshape—perceptions, expand influence, or become unstuck from unsatisfying [...]

Leadership Manifesto

News media, particularly over the past decade, tends to suggest leadership failure as the norm. Reporting blunders, from foolish faux pas to serious ethical breaches, invites us to believe that great leadership is so rare as to be hardly attainable. When things go wrong, we see the painful outcomes in print, broadcast on television, and [...]

Leadership Book List

Time and again, I’m asked to recommend books on leadership and related topics—especially after (1) someone gets a peek at my library and topic designated bookcases spread throughout my office and home, or (2) I’ve given a speech or presentation. As a result, I’m compiling a series of reading list handouts. In today’s post, I [...]

Ready to Risk: Choosing is Powerful

Most of us can name a past project that consumed our full attention and resources. What happened when that project ended? If your answer involves immediately jumping to the next, equally demanding endeavor, this post is for you. This past spring, any action unrelated to completing my doctorate fell by the wayside of my dissertation [...]
