Vulnerability + Strength = Personal Power

April 24, 2019

Tweet   Some people are drawn to forceful leaders. Others appreciate leaders who have a gentler approach. I — and many others — find the combination of vulnerability plus strength is compelling.

April 17, 2019

Tweet What a delight to receive a special gift a week after I spoke at the San Diego Professional Coaches Alliance.

Humor, at Someone Else’s Expense, Can Cut More Deeply Than You’ll Ever Know

March 15, 2019

Tweet   In my family caustic teasing was de rigueur.
