Are You Kidding Me?

Not a day goes by that I don’t mutter “Are you kidding me??” in utter disbelief scanning the latest news story. The stories range from the slaughter of soon to be extinct animals to a different kind of prey in the trafficking of the innocent or sexual harassment. The debates about gun control, opioids, climate change, nuclear weapons, racism, cryptocurrencies, foreign infiltration, trade wars and immigrants seeking asylum the world over dominate the news. And so, the blinders go on, we put our...

Risky Business

I am so out of my comfort zone right now its not even funny. For 40 years I’ve practiced law (I started at age 12…) within a set of rules and boundaries. Although we all know that the law is often based on interpretation, there is generally a well-worn path to follow, be it a straight line or one filled with potholes. I never considered myself a lawyer’s lawyer, one that went to Bar Association functions, knew every court of appeal ruling and thrived on talking legalese with other attorneys....

Thoughtful partnerships

It’s proven that having a socially responsible business can have a measurable impact on your bottom line. Does CSR have a seat at your business strategy table?The relationship between a company’s business strategy and its social responsibility strategy is a give and take. The long-term goals of the company are its “raison d’tre” but the actual alignment with strong CSR initiatives that support those goals are what give it sustainability, are what tell the world that you are in it for the long...

Are you free falling?

A somewhat daunting question, it sits beside the other two that often trigger retreat mode to even the bravest - “What is your purpose?” and “What is your passion?” For those clear in their mission, it’s a chance to stand in Joan of Arc shoes letting the world know that they have laser focus and will not be deterred when life gets in the way.For many, those questions trigger a sense of failure or hollowness. It’s almost as if the idea fairy forgot to sprinkle fairy dust on you and left you empty...

Are you free falling?

A stranger followed me out of my yoga class to the car after hearing my teacher ask me about the progress of Solutionaries. “Tell me about your book please” she said quietly. “Tell me about you” I responded.“I’m free falling. I’ve left corporate America and I can’t seem to land on anything that I feel connected to, that I feel excited about, that I believe I’m making a difference.” I have heard variation after variation of this story and this sentiment for weeks and months. There is an emptiness...

What’s in a name? Everything!

I think a lot about labels and the profound impact they have on each of us. Whether they are positive or negative, if labeled, it is likely you will become what you are called. Creative or dull, selfish or generous, sweet or mean, local or global, the variations are endless. Though our parents tried to give us tools with the old “sticks and stones” shield, it was never bullet proof was it? Somehow, at least for a moment you became the name, the label. More than ever, I now understand how...

Motivation … or Inspiration?

As a leader, do you motivate your employees or do you inspire them? As a parent, do you motivate your children or inspire them? So often, these words are used interchangeably but by no means do they provide the same results.Take a couple of minutes and write down two things that inspire you and two things that motivate you. You will quickly see that the things that inspire you cause you to feel something on the inside whereas the things that motivate you are generally as a result of something...

SOCIAL responsibility or...social RESPONSIBILITY?

Is a nonprofit socially responsible because it serves the public with a mission to resolve a social issue?At first blush, it would seem so. After all, our knee jerk reaction when we think about social responsibility programs is that our businesses must do something externally in our communities by philanthropic measures. And, since nonprofits by their very nature are already reaching out into their communities, they have checked the box. But, have they?Let’s go back to the drawing board again...

Prologue

I was conceived in Manila, Philippines, at Clark AFB, and was born in Fort Worth, Texas, the daughter of a very young couple navigating the challenges of military life at the end of WWII. Upon their return to Texas, my father took a sales position with a pharmaceutical company and my mother worked hard to be a proper housewife, devoting her days to raising her daughters and helping her husband scale the corporate ladder. By the time I was five, we had moved to Lima, Peru, followed by Mexico City...

Are you a Queen Bee or Wannabee?

Madeleine Albright sparked controversy when she spoke her trademark phrase, “There is a special place in hell for women that don’t help other women” while campaigning for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Although it appeared that she was supporting a particular candidate based on gender, she had long been a feminist and advocate for the advancement of women. Though apologetic as to its timing, she believed that her statement was taken out of context and she stood firm in her belief that women had a duty...
