MASTERY | George Leonard

Our society gives accolades to those who accomplish, achieve, and win. Mr. Leonard suggests that mastery happens in the plateaus, the places where we are practicing over and over with only the desire to practice, not achieve. This book is not new, and the message is consistent – loving what you do provides the sustaining [...]

It’s the holiday season again and there are many things happening anew that are a-old. Thinking about your year-end chaos and how listening creates impact is something I wrote about a few years back. As we look around us now, so much has changed in our world. And, although time is still ticking at the same pace, [...]

Fourth and 51

In the spirit of football season, I'm looking at the rest of this year as a fourth down opportunity. If you were watching a game and the team had 4th down and 51 yards to go, what would you recommend? Most definitely a kick, right? Yup, me too. We have 51 business days left (as [...]

This book is one woman’s quest to live differently -less responsible and capable and more passion and connection. Your life is your creation - and Shauna challenged me to consider if I had a blank calendar and a infinitely full bank account, what would I do? Seems a terrific question in a world where we [...]

Goal Setting

Are you someone who sets goals? Written goals? According to this Forbes article, those with written goals are more likely to accomplish them. Yet many of us don’t have goals at all. How do you start? Most of us have heard of SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-measurable) as the recommended way to construct goals. I [...]

Permission <---> Forgiveness

I was engaged in conversation with a new manager who was frustrated with his team. "I don't get it. I give them all the room in the world to innovate their roles, to complete their assignments. Yet they come back to me with everything. I know the last manager wanted to see everything before it [...]

CULTURE SHIFT: The Employee Handbook for Changing Corporate Culture | Price Pritchett

If you're looking for a book to use in discussing change with your team, this is a good choice. It's not lengthy in pages, and each page has powerful words for consideration and application. "Strengths become weaknesses when circumstances change but behavior doesn't." This simple statement is a conversation starter to consider what circumstances have [...]

Leading Inclusion Requires Inclusive Leaders

I’m attending the ALA Annual Conference in National Harbor, the first time I have been in ‘attendee only’ mode after years of delivering content in sessions or participating as an ALA volunteer. As soon as I had mentioned that to a colleague my phone rang and I’m discussing the family emergency of the David Brezina [...]

You might think that you don’t need to read about self-esteem, or that you aren’t suffering from a lack of it.  This book isn’t actually focused on measuring yours – it’s focused on accepting yourself where you are, and growing the awareness that propels you forward. “Self-acceptance is the precondition of change and growth.” In [...]
