Women's Leadership

Women's Leadership

Author Steven Covey writes, 'Anything less than a conscious commitment to the important, is an unconscious commitment to the unimportant.' The only elements we have influence over in the workplace are the ways we communicate and the ways we react. That's the good news. The bad news is, we don't really FEEL that way.

  • Managing

    Personal Development author Alan Cohen wrote, if you gave your inner genius as much credence as your inner critic, you would be light years ahead of where you now stand. Now that you've identified your inner critic, imagine how far you could go if that voice were not running the show.

  • Women's History

    In the days before women had rights, how did they survive? Research shows that one of the ways was by making sure they were liked. Of course, likability is a crucial component to being effective at work. However if this factor is overdone, it can lead to challenges in how people perceive you.

  • Value Strings

    When we talk about values, most people tend to go for the obvious ones like integrity, or honesty, which is a great starting point. But what do those words mean to you specifically, that might be different to others?

  • Values - Conclusion

    Roy Disney famously said, it's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are. Values are not morals or shoulds. Values are an internal barometer that tell us when we're on the right path, and when we're not.
