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...

Are you wearing your “Big Girl Panties”?

It’s that time again, March 8th, and somehow, I always feel obliged to say something profound about this day. International Women’s Day, a date commemorated at the United Nations and designated by many countries as a national holiday started in1908. Just a short 110 years ago, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights.Today, women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and...

Dear Millennials,

We aren’t all that different, we get you - despite the media reports saying otherwise!I’m a Boomer. I feel a little bit like Rose in the Titanic when she looks into the salvaged hand mirror. Though she was quite a bit older than me in the movie, I can still relate when she said, “the reflection’s changed a bit.” The important parts, however, which make us very similar, have not changed. Shall we take a look at them?We Boomers were born between the years 1946 and 1964. Like you, the largest...

“Life is a romantic business.”

“Life is a romantic business. It is painting a picture, not doing a sum – but you have to make the romance, and it will come to the question how much fire you have in the belly.” Oliver Wendell HolmesI recently told a gentleman that what I wanted was a romantic life. It was interesting to watch his reaction as he suddenly felt burdened with the responsibility that the word meant to him. Not being a romantic sort himself, he began to get a little antsy with the duty he felt that word imposed upon...

Have you been left at the dock?

The social responsibility train has been chugging down the track for years now. But, business as we have known it in the past is changing at warp speed, much of it due to the expectations of our consumers, investors and employees. Corporate social responsibility, once a “nice to have” has become the norm in the eyes of these stakeholders. Are you onboard or have you been left at the dock while your competitors travel full steam ahead?Let’s take a look at 2018 trends and predictions. According to...

Nego”she”ation… the art to the ask

The focus on sexual harassment seems to be at an all-time high largely due to the celebrity status of fallen heroes and an industry where the words “casting couch” were literal in many instances. I agree with Oprah at her riveting speech at the Golden Globes, that we all look forward to a day where people don’t have to say #metoo! As a corollary to sexual harassment, pay equalization and gender parity are trickling into focus globally.So, as a woman directly affected by any, or all, of these...

Are you inspiring?

I believe that we each have a duty to inspire others to do better, reach higher, think bigger and step up to the plate when others don’t…or won’t…with the hope that they will be encouraged by our actions and take the opportunity to follow suit the next time. For it is not people themselves that are inspiring, it is the actions they take in the best interest of those around them that we look up to. As you get ready to start a new year, what or who inspires you? Perhaps we are inspired by someone...
