Daring to Have the Tough Conversations

February 19, 2021 | Wendy B. White

During Black History Month, after a year when the push for racial justice has been highlighted and accelerated in new ways, I’ve been reflecting on my own sadness that changes in our country, sought for so long, have not come easier. I am a white, educated, middle class woman who can freely walk into any […]

A Little Dimmer Today

February 3, 2021 | Wendy B. White

The morning sunrise is a little bit dimmer today. Beverly, an older wise woman, has been a dear friend and guide for me over the past twenty years. Whenever I am down, or when the earth feels shaky under my feet, or if I am confused about the next decision in my life, I have […]

How to successfully onboard and engage new hires

January 29, 2021 | Wendy B. White

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. It was March 2020 when the work world entered into pandemic lockdown, and so many of us began adapting to work from home. […]

The Hill We Climb

January 22, 2021 | Guest Author

The Hill We Climb by Amanda Gorman When day comes we ask ourselves,where can we find light in this never-ending shade?The loss we carry,a sea we must wadeWe’ve braved the belly of the beastWe’ve learned that quiet isn’t always peaceAnd the norms and notionsof what just isIsn’t always just-iceAnd yet the dawn is oursbefore we […]

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 […]

No Doubt About It

December 18, 2020 | Wendy B. White

This has been a challenging year for us all. It is easy to turn inward, as individuals and as organizations, to become focused on our own needs, stability, and for some, survival. It is not a year where most of us would naturally extend ourselves and look for ways to give back or to search […]

Traveling the Latitude of Gratitude

November 27, 2020 | Sallie Lee

Gratitude is good for us, so much so that November is National Gratitude Month in the U.S. And this week brings Thanksgiving celebrations. For those of us who opted to show our gratitude to others by staying at home with less family around than usual, it’s a good time to reflect on what and whom […]

Resilience, Part 2: Built to Belong

November 20, 2020 | Sallie Lee

Part One of this short series on resilience revolved around the idea that as co-inhabitants of Earth, we and all creatures are connected in a system of cascading, complex asymmetrical interdependence that is both compelling and daunting: my long-term resilience depends on yours. Acknowledging that interconnectedness places us on the road to greater safety and […]
