I have been searching for the words to explain the contrast between my love of playing volleyball and my love of the world of work - same in some ways, very different in others. This book summed it up for me - in very tangible ways. Mr. Sinek provides very clear examples of how [...]

By the time you read this there will be about 60 days left in this decade. I heard this last week at a conference, and I paused. What had I done in this decade? And what would I do in the next? You remember 2010, right? The year Instagram was founded. The northeast US experienced the [...]

SELF-LEADERSHIP | Andrew Bryant & Ana Lucia Kazan

"We are nouns, not verbs." Who we are is separate from what we do. Self-confidence is fueled by purpose and moderated by the ability to accept one's mistakes. The authors have created a dense, yet specific, path through self-leadership. There are a number of assessments along the way, designed to explore who you are, what [...]

I stumbled on this e-book as I was introducing myself to the Kindle app on my iPad. The questions are built for journaling, it’s a working guide to the life you want, not the life you have. So, as we turn to cooler weather, and move indoors while the light shifts earlier in the day, [...]

Handling the Food

Years ago, when I was first entering the world of full time management, some words of advice were given to me that recently resurfaced in a client conversation: don't handle the food. The conversation all those years back was about establishing myself as a leader (at a young age) and that no matter how easy it might [...]

DARE TO LEAD | Brené Brown

“Our ability to be daring leaders will never be greater than our capacity for vulnerability.” This is Ms. Brown’s sixth book, and it’s another excellent read if you are interested in the research that supports vulnerability. In this installment, Brené brings forward the necessity of authenticity, vulnerability, and safe containers. Two points that particularly caused [...]

Simple Doesn’t Mean Easy

Are you the type of person to strike up a conversation with a stranger on an airplane? If so, then I’m not your favorite seatmate. Most often you’ll find me head down in my laptop working on an article like this one or preparing content for an upcoming speaking or training program. Recently, however, I [...]

I Can’t…

Worst sentence starter ever! And how often does it start your sentences? I’m returning from my annual adventures at the USA Volleyball Adult National Championships where I competed with a new group of women. I begin training my body in January, because when the tournament becomes the most challenging (in the medal rounds), I want [...]

THE POWER OF HABIT | Charles Duhigg

“Habits are technically defined as: the choices that all of us deliberately make at some point, and then stop thinking about but continue doing, often every day.” That statement was enough for me to be hooked on this book. Mr. Duhigg walks us through the steps to change a habit and also ones to build [...]
