My Search for Authenticity

My Search for Authenticity

This year, I challenged myself to work on my own leadership. For several years now, we’ve heard and read about authentic leadership.

During the course of the conference, one of our team members was....... Read More

As a Leader, Are You Guilty of Spreading the Incivility Bug?

Civility…you’ll probably start hearing this new buzz word in leadership circles. Just as this crazy, busy, stressed out time we live in has given rise to the practices of mindfulness and meditation, so too are partisan politics and polarization of views in our world giving rise to increased awareness of the need to behave better toward one another. We’re seeing firsthand through the news, social media, and even in some of our communities, how destructive behavior and communication takes..... Read More
