Build Bridges, Not Walls

Published on August 2, 2016 Written by

I’ve been presenting on effective communication for 27 years now, and it has consistently made me check myself as well as my results. Like anyone, I can go on “autopilot” and lose focus on being intentional with my messages. When this happens, I revert to saying things the way it’s most comfortable for me to […]

Grief in Action

Published on June 14, 2016 Written by

When I started to write this introduction for our June newsletter, it was in the wake of my father passing away.

In fact, it is in conversations that […]

Why Networking Matters As a Young Person

Published on March 27, 2016 Written by

As a young professional I sometimes feel intimidated when attending networking events. I almost always feel underdressed (even when I’m not) and somehow manage to trip or lose my nametag without fail.
