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.

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.

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.

Starting to Write a New Leadership Column on Forbeswoman

Saturday, April 16, 2011 @ 5:43 PM

Forbeswoman, a great source of fresh news and commentary on women, work and gender hot topics, has invited me to become a contributing columnist on leadership.  My column is called Powering Up Women.  I'll be writing about the next big challenge for women: opening the leadership locker rooms.  here's my first national Forbeswoman column.

Where Are Today's Geraldine Ferraros?

Wednesday, April 06, 2011 @ 10:51 PM

Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus hits the bullseye with her column today lamenting the lack of women leaders in public office.  Even younger women aren't running.  The discouraging facts that Marcus cites about how women are slipping in political leadership positions are why one of the themes of my book, Powering Up!, is that American women are Leadership Underachievers.  We've been stalled for well over a decade.  If you don't believe me, here's Marcus column.

Autoline Detroit's John McElroy Seeks "Aha Moment" Stories

Thursday, March 31, 2011 @ 2:37 PM

John McElroy, host of Autoline Detroit, the most-watched TV show for automotive insiders, and one of the most respected journalists covering the indsutry, invited me to his studios recently for a new series he's starting.  He's asking senior women in the industry to share the insights they learned from one of their most important professional "Aha Moments."  Mine is about dealing with workplace enemies.
