Trust is a Biochemical Phenomenon! OXYTOCIN -The Secret to Building High-Trust & High-Performance Cultures!

All Aboard the Trust Train… Last Friday, I had a great time with a leadership team facilitating an all day off-site team retreat. I felt inspired by this group as we worked through the activities of the day.

The Science of a Memory

Twenty-one years ago today the Murrah Building was bombed and 168 people were gone in a moment. I remember that day as if it happened yesterday.

Both of my two amazing kids graduated, one from high school and one from Oklahoma State University. (Proud Mom warning!) They left for their respective new homes in August. My daughter was bound for OU Law School and my son followed in the family footsteps, attending Oklahoma State. Read More

ColleagueCorner-A Penny for your Thoughts:Leadership Lessons from a Horse

A little more than 100 miles outside of Los Angeles in a quaint, rural town most people know by the Pinot Noirs featured in the film Sideways and home to the estate of the late Michael Jackson, are some of the finest leaders I’ve had the privilege to know and serve. They continue to call forth my evolution as a leader and they do so without uttering a single word. If you really want to break through to your next level of leadership, ask a horse to show you what you need to see. Read More
