Laying on the hood of my dad’s ‘82 Oldsmobile, staring at the stars, I used to dream of how to explore the sky. What could I do to get to space? (I was also obsessed with Space Camp, thank you, Lea Thompson). I’ve been creating options of exploring and excitement for a long time. It’s […]

Feeling a little crispy right now? A little overwhelmed and fraying around the edges? A significant symptom of overwhelm is lack of focus and distraction. Getting from one task to the next without succumbing to shiny distractions or bailing because the task isn’t fun (I’m looking at you #taxes) seems to require more than the […]

Standing in the front, what do you experience? Sweaty palms? Shallow breath? Excited butterflies?   Undergrads in a intro to comms class, mid-level managers in a status meeting, to experienced speakers on the stage… We all have to stand in front at some point.

The purple curling ribbon slipped from the package as I eagerly opened a present from my high-school boyfriend (who happened to become my husband).  I smiled and lightly brushed the cellophane pages of the leather album, full of prints of Michael and me and our friends.

I was in tap class for about 32 seconds when I was seven years old. But I adored it. The sounds, the movement, the power. Fred Astaire, Vera-Ellen, Gregory Hines, Dulé Hill, Christian Borle, my own kids—It’s probably my favorite style of dance. We had a demonstration class at my kids’ studio last month. Miss […]

The Enneagram and connection can save you millions of dollars. (Yes, MILLIONS) Forbes used data from Achievers showing each disengaged employee costs a company 34% of their salary. That’s a $13,600 cost for the median $40K  salary. Ouch! So what can you do? How do you engage employees? Create a culture of honoring and respecting […]

Who’s holding the director’s mic inside your head?  Do they deserve it? A few months ago I realized I’d been hiding. I’ve had some old stories from an abusive leader running the show in the back of my mind. (Have you done that? Regina George from high school is still telling you no one likes […]

What would it look like for you if you could manage conflicts and feel confident as a leader? Imagine if there was a way to get there without all the miscommunication and your own fears getting in the way. What would that look like? What would you say? What questions do you ask? And how […]

What’s your biggest fear? (Don’t scroll & pretend something didn’t just pop its way up into your brain.) Do you know how that fear impacts your leadership & relationships? The fears you work so hard to hide from others & yourself?⁣ We had an explosion in the fall of 2001—a long-distance fight with my husband […]

Do you get stuck in imposter syndrome in your leadership? Are you a Professor who’s trying to be out front all the time because someone told you that’s what leaders do? Or are you the Connector who’s focusing on the numbers when really you want to work with the people? Maybe you’re the Natural who’s […]
