On Everyone A Leader®

There are many great examples of how Everyone A Leader (EAL) stands apart from traditional leadership curricula. It doesn’t simply tell you what it takes to be an effective leader, it shows you how to be an effective leader. It provides you with the tools you need to turn your ideas into action. It demonstrates the necessity of valuing all the voices that make up an organization–from clerical staff to CEOs.

But as an African-American woman who has navigated workplaces where Black voices are too often silenced, I believe that EAL’s greatest attribute is something even more powerful: Its ability to create a culture of belonging, and, in the process, help people heal.

The Importance of Self-Care and Keeping Your Resilience Cup Full

When I first heard “Take time for self-care,” I immediately thought, “Seriously, have you seen my schedule? Do you have any idea of the responsibilities I carry?” The idea of self-care has been preached for years – especially to women – from legitimate medical sources to unrealistic (and sometimes harmful) wellness marketing. And while most everyone recognizes its importance; it can feel more like an unjustifiable luxury than a necessity.

Leadership During a Paradigm Shift

“When a paradigm shifts, everybody goes back to zero,” Joel Barker, futurist. I remember when I first heard this phrase. It was the early 1990’s and I was just completing my internship with Dr. W. Edwards Deming, the father of the quality management movement in Japan and then here in the U.S.

A paradigm shift had occurred then as U.S. manufacturing raced to change its approach to quality and employee engagement. A paradigm shift has occurred again today. COVID was the catalyst.
