Over the past few weeks I’ve travelled 15,000 miles and visited 7 cities, sometimes on business, sometimes for personal activities. As you all know, air travel can be relaxing (ok, that’s rare these days) or a chore, a means to getting to your destination. My go-to airline here in the US has a slogan “Something Special in the Air” but is it really; is it really special? Most of my trips over the past weeks would say it was okay, nothing to write home about though, until my last trip to Miami.
There I am, Chicago O’Hare, waiting for my flight and five minutes before boarding is due to start the board suddenly announces, “flight cancelled!” Great, now what?
Book Review: “No Ceiling, No Walls: What women haven’t been told about leadership from career-start to the corporate boardroom” by Susan L. Colantuono
Susan Colantuono believes there is a third element, “the missing 33 percent” that holds women back from reaching the highest levels in business. That missing piece is “business skills.” Her book provides practical actions for women in leadership to implement in order to reach pivotal success in the boardroom and beyond.
A glimpse into the seamless transition companies are creating for women who are new mothers, highly educated, and re-entering the workplace after a career break.
Emotions are the things that drive us into action, whether it’s an action that takes us forward or one that takes us in reverse. The emotions are the real reason for running away from the commitment but we’re so used to coming from a place of “logic” that we rarely take the time to dig deeper and understand what’s really going on. there is a vast difference between deciding to do something and actually taking action to do it, in other words, making a commitment and sticking with it. We can do things differently for short bursts but its tough to sustain.
