Millennials — The Best of Times

Has there ever been a generation as stereotyped in the workplace as the Millenials?  They’ve come of their “professional age” during the Great Recession, which would be tough enough, but they are then typecast as spoiled, entitled, the Trophy kids, you name it.  I think everyone has something to...



An Interesting Apology . . .

Did you catch Monday’s apology from the dean of Harvard Business School, for the school’s sometimes offensive treatment of its women professors and students?   Apparently Harvard has been prompted to improve its ways in part due to an unflattering profile in the New York Times last year, recounting...



Check out the PDC’s Linkletter Summer Newsletter

I’m happy to post a link to the latest issue of the Professional Development Consortium’s newsletter, the Linkletter, with my article on Sponsorship Demystified starting on page 3.  Thank you to Lani Walser, my co-presenter on the subject at last summer’s PDC conference in Seattle, who generously wrote the...



Interesting Thoughts on Leadership from Women in Tech

Executing With Excellence: A Book Review

The Four Disciplines of Execution, by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, and Jim Huling Let me start by saying I love this book!  I’m a fan of simple, common sense pointers, and 4DX doesn’t disappoint.  The First Discipline is that beyond keeping the day-to-day business moving forward (the “whirlwind”), leaders...

I had the opportunity to spend Saturday with the Board of Directors of the Saint Vincent’s Day Home, facilitating their annual board retreat.  If you don’t know about the great work of the Day Home, you should.  They are a child development center in West Oakland, where they have...

Keeping Faith With Your Goals

I fell off the blogging wagon over the last two weeks, and resolved that I would resume regular blogging once April rolled around.  It seemed a bad omen to resume on April Fool’s Day, but there’s no reason not to post today. I generally like to blog – it...



Try Learning From What Works

The questions that you ask yourself, and others, changes things.  As an easy example, thinking about what is best in your life, or your work, rather than what you don’t enjoy about your life or work will take you in entirely different directions.  Appreciative Inquiry grew out of the...
