It’s my last full day of vacation and I am listening to the waves crash onto the shore as I write this post. For the past six days, I have played on beach with my family, gotten water up my nose in the pool, played mini golf, eaten way too much ice cream, and laughed with my family daily. I still cooked meals and occasionally … Continue reading Take a Vacation!

I had a great time talking with her about women changing careers. In this podcast, Devora Black and I had a chance to discuss what it’s like … Continue reading Starts With a Dream: Career Change
I recently recorded a podcast on helping women transition careers, and it made me think of a few points. We (society) still talk about women transitioning careers or advancing in work in a way in which we do not talk about men. While I believe that it has become easier for women to change careers than our mothers or grandmothers (for instance), it is still … Continue reading Working Women and Careers
As the world becomes more fixated on dimensions of leadership, I began noticing the headlines suggesting ways in which leaders were thinking outside of the box. With one news article after another about a leader of an organization implementing the latest eye-catching policy, one major theme struck me. These weren’t leaders just doing things to make the front page. These leaders were doing things that … Continue reading Change, Improve, Thrive
Stop the press! Did you know that people spend approximately 30% or more daydreaming? Let’s take it a step further: Did you know that daydreaming can be helpful to leaders? You read that right.
