Room to Roam

This morning I took time out from my schedule to text one of my clients.  She's an excellent leader - at the hospital where she's a Division Chief, at home where she has a husband and 3 kids, in her medical research, and in her community. The COVID pandemic has...

It’s Not Me. It’s You.

As I’ve continued to delve this summer into the crucial topic of The High Cost of HyperCompetence & Its Cure, I’ve noticed a startling pattern. So many of us who struggle with the costs of HyperCompetence seem to have a narcissist (usually one...

Not So Common Cents

Not So Common Cents

I am so excited! Now, “common-sense” marketing tells me to share what I learn only long after I learn it, so as not to publicize in real time any of the mistakes that I, a card-carrying human, am bound to make as I implement my learning.  Well, then, to...

My newest mentor recently retired from the big time — where she ran multi-million dollar lines of business— to develop women leaders, sit on boards and… paint.  A little voice inside her told her she needed to paint.  She hadn’t painted since childhood, but she...

We Can See Your LoveJobs

We Can See Your LoveJobs

Sometimes people seem to get divine downloads.  Last week I wrote about one from my son.  This week’s comes from my ten-year-old daughter. One day she came up with the concept of “LoveJobs”.  According to her, everyone has at least one.  (It sounded to me like this...
