The Challenge of Change

When I brought my usual brand of laundry detergent home and went to place it on the shelf… it wouldn’t fit. Perplexed, I inspected the bottle and compared it to the nearly empty one it was scheduled to replace. The brand was the same, the volume was the same, it even had the same fresh scent, but for some reason, the cap design had changed. This bottle had a taller cap than its predecessor. I couldn’t see a benefit to [...]

Resilience SOS

We know that resilient behaviors can be learned – resilience is like a muscle that you need to work. You get knocked down, get back up again and flex that muscle a little more each time. I’ve written about building resilience before and it’s once again front of mind for me during graduation season and also in the work I’m doing with organizations who want to ensure their people are equipped for leading change.  […]

Try approaching diversity like you would safety

When I work with organizations – especially in the energy sector – it’s clear that safety is a priority and there are systems and mechanisms in place to ensure that things happen in a safe way. And when things aren’t happening as they should be, a safety dashboard provides a transparent and simple way to flag issues. It works because the business depends on it – and, of course, it is the right thing to do.  […]

When you get to the top, don’t forget to send the elevator down

There are many variations on the theme of this saying (I also like: when you climb the wall, throw the rope back) that speak to using our own success and good fortune to help others.  You’ve worked hard to get where you are and now it’s time to elevate (pun intended!) your own goals by helping others because great leaders create leaders.  […]

Putting purpose to work

Ten years into my career with oilfield services giant Schlumberger, I had a series of pivotal moments that were to change my life.  One of these moments was a trip to the continent of Africa that completely changed the way I viewed myself, my responsibilities, and my capabilities. Combined with other significant events in my life in 2005 – including achieving my PMP certification and the confidence that came with the credential – it was clear I had found my [...]

How to double down on your support for women in the workforce

The impacts of crises are never gender-neutral, and COVID-19 is no exception – that’s the bleak assertion of UN Women (the United Nations entity charged with championing gender equality). For countless women in economies of every size, along with losing income, the unpaid care and domestic work burden has exploded. In January of this year, 275,000 women left the U.S workforce (compared with 70,000 men).  […]
