A Leader’s Do vs Be Conundrum

We’ve all recently ended not just a year, but also a decade.  Decades—on the calendar or in our life—offer a unique opportunity to evaluate progress toward critical goals. To achieve what we perceive as success, leaders often hear a laundry list of what we should be doing. We hear just as much advice about how [...]

Real Women, Real Questions 3

This post includes surprising insights from research on leadership development and my response to WID Leadership Summit participant questions about "finding the job I love," pursuing "what I really want," and facilitating a transition from corporate to "community benefit." You may want to reflect on the interesting connections between the two, and any implications for [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
