Extremes! Are Not Normal!

Going to Extremes Is Not Normal

Whenever I’m working with, or speaking with, someone of a different generation — whether it’s Millennial, Gen Z, Gen X — one expression they’ll never hear me say is “When I was your age …” I honor the past, where appropriate.

Home Is Where the Heart Is, Office Is Where the Work Is

  Imagine if your boss gave you a lie-detector test and the first question you were asked is, “Have you been putting in a full 40 hours a week during the pandemic while working at home?” How would you answer the question, assuming you didn’t want the polygraph machine to show your boss you were […]

Hug it out, America. Stop fighting to make noise.

Women in Charge

Are Role Models Heros?

Who’s Your Hero?
