"The Court Room vs. Your Office (How the Casey Anthony Saga can Help You Grow)"Anger. Outrage. Injustice. These feelings rang so loudly in my head when I heard the Casey Anthony verdict that I could focus on little else. NO justice for little Calee. As the day wore on however, I found myself reflecting on the events of the past several months. Of the cases presented by the defense and the prosecutors, of the perspective of the jurors, of the impetus of my own anger and outrage and (as always) what I could learn Read More
Admittedly, I'm not much for reality TV but if you missed last night's premier episode of Undercover Boss following the Super Bowl, you missed some great 'undercover' leadership lessons from the Chief Operating Officer (C.O.O.) of a $13 billion company. The opportunity to watch a senior executive at such a large company was really too cool to miss.

Like many of us, I am deeply shocked and saddened at the death of Natasha Richardson. I am sure there was a time in my life in which I would hear Read More
Dr. King stood, fought and died advancing a vision of possibility for African Americans and unity for all people. He died advancing a dream.
President Obama epitomizes the realization of that very dream...
As we celebrate this week, I cannot help but turn my thoughts to my two year old daughter. I think about the impact of this week on her life. Read More
Just another example of defying the odds with a fan club of 1.
The one would be the Cardinals themselves...
In other words, Arizona who????
And now, they are on their way to the Superbowl!!
I love it when I see underdog victories.
Because EVERYDAY, there are always folks who tell you what you CAN'T do. They're so willing to give you a thousand reasons why your dream will fail.
For every Read More
Perhaps one of the best aspects of the work that I do is getting to be a "possibility beacon" for my clients. My clients come to me with a variety of hopes, dreams and aspirations and I get to be the voice of hope and the strategy to achieve.
I get to be the one that says, "You can create anything you choose".
Sometimes...they actually believe me.
But not often enough.
Inwardly they say, "I'll believe it when I see it."
I say, "See it Read More
Ninety-five percent of the time my husband and I agree on our television viewing. We are both avid sports fans so when we do have an opportunity to watch television that is usually what you'll find (other than our daughters cartoons) but occasionally, I get a yen for a good Lifetime movie and they are definitely not on my husbands "desired viewing" list....(Guys, hang in there with me..)
I like them for the reason Lifetime produces them...they are Read More
I love the Olympics. The best athletes in the world competing to be the best athlete in the world.... You've gotta love that. It's not just about the competition. It's about the stories. Oldest Olympians. Youngest Olympians. Mothers. Fathers. Sons and daughters. All fulfilling a dream. For some, their first Olympics. For others, their last. For all, an amazing life experience.
During the Olympics, we see examples fo greatness over and over and over again.
How does that happen? What makes one great in their sport? In their field?
Yesterday I posted some of my initial thoughts on the passing of comedian Bernie Mac. I have now had an opportunity to see several reports surrounding his untimely passing. Of all of the information I have heard in review of Bernie Mac's life, one thing resonates with me...
He was going to retire.
Every newscast showed interview footage of Bernie Mac stating that he was going to retire soon. He was going to slow down. Well, guess what?
It's too late.
He was only 50 and I'm sure he thought he would Read More
