Why being vulnerable is not always a good idea.

Over the past few years, the idea of vulnerability has been gaining a lot of traction and has become a hot topic.  In our current pandemic environment, this desire to be oneself, to be vulnerable, tell your truth – at work and outside work has escalated even further. My perspective?  It may not be a good […]

Covid’s Impact on Women’s Careers.

Last week I got off the phone with a client who let me know that she had been laid off due to a slowdown at her company as a result of the pandemic. Surprising? Not really.  Still, it was disappointing. Then she told me that a total of four people were let go in her […]

No U-turns

Going stir-crazy with being at home? Not in the mood to get into the ‘new normal’? Can’t wait to get back to the perfectly fine ‘old’ normal?  I get it.  There are moments when I feel the same way.  Throughout this crisis, I’ve been sharing my advice about dealing with this chaotic and uncertain environment.

Redefining what it means to THRIVE

Leaders always have a plan. They see the big picture. They have contingencies and roadmaps and timelines. But, there’s no plan for this. The future is fuzzy. We don’t know what the next week, month, or year is going to look like.  That’s a tough pill to swallow. Especially for a high-performer with serious goals […]

Becoming AntiFRAGILE

Crises bring chaos. But they also bring opportunity. Effective leaders find a way to steer their teams through turmoil, seize the moment, and emerge on the other side stronger and better than ever.  That’s what I want you to focus on next. You’ve got a plan in place. You’re finding a new normal. You’re evolving. You’re leading. […]

BUILDING RESILIENCE

Last week, you took stock of your situation. You identified your feelings. You reflected on your opportunities. You wrote a mantra for yourself. This week, it’s time to start making a plan.  Leaders always have a plan.  So, what will yours be? How Will You Work Through This? (Be Specific) In order to lead effectively, […]

Leadership in times of Chaos

Things are a bit crazy right now. The world doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense. Everything is off kilter. It’s okay if you’re not okay.  Feeling scared, disoriented, and uncertain in times like these is perfectly normal. That doesn’t make you weak. It doesn’t make you fragile. You can be scared and brave […]

Are you Fragile?

ANTIFRAGILE – Beyond robustness.  Not merely widstanding a shock but improving because of it. Things not going as planned?  Are you frustrated? Pissed off even?  I know exactly how you feel.  I understand you. You like to have things under your control.  You plan, organize and execute to perfection. That is, except when things come […]
