On Transparency – Life’s Arena

I’ve discovered transparency has two sides. One one side, it sounds so authentic. We all want transparency from others. Transparency from your boss. Transparency in your relationships. Tell me the truth – even if it hurts I’d rather have #Truth than something else. What reality TV and America Idol tryouts had in common is that they […]...

Leaders Love Them Anyway

I talked to a young lady yesterday. She wanted to interview me for a paper she was writing on the stigma of sexual abuse/assault. I had agreed to the interview, not realizing A) That she was a high-school student (not a grad student as I assumed) and B) That she chose the topic for her […]...

Straight Talk: The Power of Effective Communication

“Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success.” ~Paul Meyer I was nearly 20 years old before I realized I liked people.

A Defining Moment

“Happy New Day! Today is the start to the rest of your life.” ~Ria Story August 14 is a special day for me. Actually, every day is special but August 14 has a little extra significance.

If you asked me a question you would get a monosyllabic response that discouraged any further dialogue. It’s not that I didn’t […]...

Being Mortal

I’ve been reading Atul Gawande’s “Being Mortal.” It’s an incredibly thought-provoking read and honestly I wish everyone in the medical profession had the opportunity to read it. There were quite a few fascinating points but I especially appreciated his thoughts on how people’s perspective and values change when they accept that they have a terminal […]...

Consequences Last a Lifetime

Author’s Note: I debated for several days whether to write this blog, simply because the issue is so controversial….Please note that I’m not condoning or condemning either side here. But, I think it needs to be said that our choices carry consequences that can impact the rest of our life.  I seldom watch the news. I prefer […]...

3 Steps to Getting Unstuck

Running for me is an excellent way to “Sharpen the saw” because it lets me exercise physically and also gives me time to think. I did a long run yesterday, although I got a later start than I had planned to and it was hot. Really hot. And, after nine miles, I realized I really wanted […]...

The Ripple Effect

In 2013, Les Brown said, “You have a story, and someone needs to hear your story.” Les Brown has been named one of the greatest motivational speakers in the world. He speaks to thousands of people every year, all over the world.  He probably has said those exact words many times over the years. When he […]...
