Leading Through Grief with Emotional Intelligence

During COVID, we are grieving the loss of normalcy, connection, economic stability, and for some, the profound loss of a loved one. We are also dealing with anticipatory grief. We fear getting sick or dying, or seeing our loved ones suffer. We are collectively grieving with each of us responding in different ways and to different effects.   As leaders, we play many roles; however, a grief counselor is generally not one of them. Nonetheless, as we’ve learned since COVID-19 forever changed our world, the ability to lead through grief is a necessary skill.

Mistakes Happen. It’s What We Do Next That Matters Most

You see, I am a major contributor to our consumeristic culture. I see something shiny and I think I have to have it. A friend jokes that she hates going shopping with me because I have to pick up and touch everything on the shelves (although I’ve eliminated that practice due to COVID!).  Like so many of us, I am easily persuaded by marketing tactics. Now that we so rarely spend cash, it feels like I can simply swipe a card, click a button, or use my fingerprint and suddenly I have a new…

Women Need a Personal Brand

Personal branding has become a critical way for us to communicate who we are and what we care about. Each of us have skills, values, and expertise to share. We each also have the ability to share our narratives; and in doing so claim the power of our voices while empowering other women with our stories. Personal branding is an important opportunity to share our narrative, and in today’s increasingly digital world, regardless of your professional role, a personal brand is a must. “Your personal brand is your visual resume,” says leadership coach Ali Dunn. “When you’re putting yourself online, your brand will relay the message of what you believe and what you’re capable of; and where you’ve been and where you want to go.”…
