Leadership Daily

This blog is written for everyone who is interested in Leadership. Every day I share a story inspired by something in my week, along with a thought on how you might integrate this into your life.

What would it take to not need to worry about diversity

It’s International Woman’s Day. In honour of woman everywhere I wanted to share my thought on the topic of diversity. I love that such a movement exists to keep such an important topic alive. As I was writing this post, a friend sent this to me saying “In 1927 you...

Acknowledge their greatness

Yesterday, I talked about being mindful of where you drop anchor. When we anchor someone's mindset, it is much like anchoring a ship. The person will become attached and stuck to their mindset. When a team loses, I said it's better to tell them they didn't deserve to...
