The Woman's Card in a Leader's Hand is an Ace. Deal Me In!

Thursday, April 28, 2016 @ 8:24 AM

Presidential wanna-be Donald Trump has been playing the "Billionaire card," the "Bully card," the "Washington outsider" card and even the "Man's Man/My physical assets are plenty big card." But the one card he doesn't hold is the Woman's card, which is no longer a joker in a leader's hand.  Today, the woman's card is an Ace and that's what scares Donald Trump to death. My advice to Hillary Clinton: Play it Hillary! 

Hillary's response to his latest whine was pitch perfect.  Deal me in!

Becoming a WONderful Woman is Just the Beginning

Monday, May 04, 2015 @ 11:04 AM

Forget about listing all of your credentials and accomplishments when you are being honored.  If you want to spice up an awards event, ask one of your siblings to introduce you -- and give them free hand to tell the audience the "back story" about how you became the person you are today.  I'm the big sister of seven children -- and my youngest brother, Vince, just did a great job introducing me.  To hear his intro and my comments, CLICK HERE.

Je Suis Charlie

Tuesday, January 13, 2015 @ 4:37 PM

In the wake of the tragic shootings in Paris and the controversy in the USA over the movie, THE INTERVIEW, I've been thinking a lot about leaders and the importance of continuing to raise our voices, even in the face of push-back, disdain and threats.

Sometimes those threats can mean life or death, as in the case of the French journalists or the over three million, including 40 world leaders, who marched arm in arm in Paris to proclaim, "Je suis, Charlie. We will not be silenced!". 

Or, it can be as subtle as well-intentioned, but insidious, career advice. I'll never forget the Ford executive who told me, "Anne, you've got to stop always seeing things through the eyes of a woman. People are getting really tired of it!" The "people" he was referring to, of course, were all men, many of whom would have preferred I always saw things their way, or at least stifled myself more often! 

My 2015 message is simply this: BE COURAGEOUS. Dare to continue raising your voice to make a positive difference. Everywhere we look, the human family is crying out for the mothers of the world -- women -- to step up and take an equal role in shaping the economic, cultural, educational, military and public policy decisions that impact all human possibility. 

I love the words of Admiral Michelle Howard, vice chief of U.S. Naval Operations, who is raising the Navy's game. She recently told a Washington, DC audience, "My definition of leadership is 'Not standing around and doing nothing while watching everything go to hell!'” Everywhere we look, things are going to hell.

Pick your passion. Then put your shoulder to the wheel and find the courage to let your voice be heard.

What Does Gamergate Reveal?

Sunday, November 16, 2014 @ 7:54 PM

GAMERGATE: If you haven't heard about the recent uproar and terrifying backlash against outspoken women who have dared to raise their voices against the pervasive violence toward women in video games, you need to know. Female game developers who have dared to complain receive rape and death threats. And Anita Sarkeesian, a feminist media critic who has done excellent reporting on the excessive violence and victimization of women, was forced to cancel a presentation at Utah State University after USU received threats of a mass shooting if the "craven little whore" was allowed to speak. It was my 22-year-old son, Kevin, who brought this outrageous situation to my attention. Hope you are paying attention to the images and messages that gamers in your family are saturated with.

GOLDIEBLOX TAKES ON BARBIE: Finally, here's some fun. Take a look at the latest GoldieBlox ad about the first action figure for girls. With the gift season coming up, hope you'll keep the message in mind as you choose gifts. Remember the words of the indominatable Leymah Gbowee and help "unleash the power of girls"!

BEST SCORECARD IS THE ONE WE KEEP ON OURSELVES

Thursday, July 19, 2012 @ 8:23 AM

Charlotte Beers is a legendary leader -- who is now sharing her decades of insight and experience about leading as a woman who understands her own POWER and is very comfortable in her own SKIN.  I call that female leadership skill:  Womaninity -- and write an entire chapter about it in my book, POWERING UP!

Here's a terrific interview with Beers done by the NY Times Adam Bryant.  It's packed with actionable wisdom.  

Leadership Test: Surviving Adversity With Dignity, Grace and Integrity

Thursday, July 19, 2012 @ 5:56 AM

How about this for a women's leadership book topic -- Surviving Adversity With Dignity, Grace & Integrity. The first person I'd interview would be University of Virginia President Terry Sullivan who was just re-instated after faculty and students reacted with outrage over her ouster by the Board.

What a fiasco -- but what lessons learned President Sullivan could share.  Hope she writes her own book one day.  She's a brilliant and terrific leader -- and a tough Texan who cut her academic teeth in Texas before becoming Provost at the University of Michigan.  I met her during her years in Michigan and interviewed her for my book, POWERING UP!  

Here's more from the Boston Globe on the leadership fiasco perpetrated by the Board of the University of Virginia -- they now have egg all over their faces and Sullivan has been re-instated.

100 Top Websites for Women

Wednesday, July 04, 2012 @ 12:44 PM

Here are two great sources of excellent information for aspiring women (and men interested in what we're up to!) who want to make a difference in the world.  Forbeswoman, where I am a contributing blogger, just published its "100 "Top 100 Websites for Women," including 85Broads and several other favorites of mine.  

And the League of Extraordinary Women is a treasure trove of fantastic, women- led organizations committed to helping to lift the human family.  Here's Fast Company's list of the Best. 

Enjoy.

St. Patrick's Day Reminder of My Greatest Mentor, Vince Doyle

Saturday, March 17, 2012 @ 11:20 AM

Here's My St. Patrick's Day "Top O' The Morning" gift to everyone who was blessed with a great father, as I was.  During my pioneering years as one of the first TV female sports broadcasters in the country -- including the challenge of fighting for equal access with male journalists to sports locker rooms -- my father, Detroit sports broadcaster Vince Doyle, was my greatest ally and a tremendous mentor.  Here's a St. Patrick's Day 1980 TV interview, which captures the magical influence that great fathers can have on their daughters.  Click here to watch.

Nobel Peace Prize Winner Tells Women, "It is Time to Stop Being Politely Angry."

Monday, March 12, 2012 @ 2:26 PM

When Liberian leader Leymah Gbowee, winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, speaks people listen.  And wait till you hear the challenge she issued to the women gathered at the 2012 Women in the World Summit last week in New York.  

I was there for every riveting moment.  Here's the column I just wrote about the event for Forbeswoman.

Is This A Hillary Moment?

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 6:38 AM

With our presidential election less than one year away and our nation dismayed with the leadership deadlock in Washington, D.C. the drumbeat is growing for a Hillary Clinton presidency.  I don't expect it to happen, but when the Wall Street Journal publishes a major Op Ed advocating her election, you know we've come a long way toward being ready to elect our first woman president.  Click here for the WSJ commentary.
