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).  […]

The 3 B’s of Inclusive Leadership: Beliefs, Biases and Behaviors

We show up to work as our 'whole selves' and, in many ways, this is a good thing. Authenticity is important to well-being and pretending to be someone you’re not is an emotional drain. But with that also comes the challenge of respecting - and actively seeking out - those who are different from us. This is what it means to practice inclusive leadership - creating a space where different views, perspectives, and experiences are embraced.  Within us lies the [...]

Why You Need To Be An Effective Communicator (Now More Than Ever)

As we start a new year, the situation continues to evolve but it seems likely that we’ll be navigating working from home - and the dispersed and remote teams that entails - well into 2021. It’s not all bad news though, as working from home offers flexibility and productivity benefits. What has undeniably been lost, though, is in-person communication and the casual encounters [...]

An Important Letter for Racial Reconciliation

The events of this summer have moved me to my core. So I did what I do, I reached for my pen. Here’s an excerpt from my new book collaboration A Collective Breath.   Dear White Christians, I love you, and God loves you; but He needs you to understand some things. I need you to understand some things: 1. It is not (insert the name of a Black person you know)’s responsibility to educate you on the history of [...]
