It’s tough for us to hear that during COVID, women have been leaving the workplace in droves across levels and sectors.

The Mother of All Leadership Challenges

March 12, 2021 | Lisa Marie Main

Recently, I was facilitating a client video conference on Zoom. The speaker, a young woman charged with leading an organizational initiative, began to outline her project update.

I’ve been coaching a new leader who moved her family halfway across the country to take a dream job only to discover the week before she started work that everything had changed.

January 8, 2021 | Sallie Lee

Have you ever stumbled across something that turned your world around? That’s what the odd-sounding philosophy and methodology called APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY did for me. And, it’s available to you, too. In late 1996, my friend and colleague Ravi Pradhan called me late one night from the Albuquerque airport saying that he had just attended a […]
