Chief Joy Officer : Book Summary

To be a loving leader simply means to not be mean, harsh, impatient or unkind. It also means to simply NOT be vindictive, uncaring, sarcastic or hurtful. Doesn't that reframe it as something that is quite easy to do?

Kindness is free! Kindness is also the most valuable currency a leader has - kindness does not mean looking the other way. Rather it means the deepest form of caring (which can also be in the form of a tough conversation or a firing!). Kindness means having the wherewithall to say the words to someone that will stick with them for a lifetime (whether coaching, supportive or motivating words).

Thank you Richard Sheridan for the amazing Chief Joy Officer book!

The path to joyful leadership is anything but comfortable. It involves letting go of most of what you've learned or experienced. It means changing what you believe ABOUT the people who work for you and with you. It means getting back to your own personal definition of joy. One you'd be proud to have

The Power of Our Stories

Last year, I delivered a speech to the Union Pacific Law and Risk Management professionals in Omaha, Nebraska. I've published the speech on my website and wanted to share it with you all! My admonishment at the end of the speech:

SEEK OUT the commonalities you share with each other. Seek out the differences and variables in the way you present to each other. Seek out the stories. This is a big, sometimes scary and complicated world. Be willing to tell YOUR story. Only by acknowledging our human connection with each other will WE start to effect change in our communities and organizations.

** What areas of your life can you commit to seeking out the commonalities?

In 2018, I was asked to speak at the Union Pacific Law and Risk Management Conference. I excitedly said yes as it would be a wonderful experience to share my story. Little did I know that the theme of the conference was literally: TELL YOUR STORY. I’m sharing my speech with you here to encourage y...

A mother and son's photographic journey through dementia

This is BEAUTIFUL. Artist Tony Luciani was testing out a new camera when his 91-year-old mother, Elia, snuck into the background of his photos. The spontaneous images that resulted sparked a years-long collaboration, with Luciani documenting his mom's life and spirit as she lived with dementia. In this touching talk, he shares the stories behind some of their favorite shots, capturing the joy and grief of caring for an aging parent.

Conversation Challenge

Talking Race with Your Teen: a Conversation Challenge from Sara Alvarado ... starting October 2018 – Sign up today and do this with me?

From Sara's website:

Hey parents – are you talking about race with your teens?
If it isn’t a constant and ongoing conversation, it’s time to make it a priority. If you need to ask why, you probably aren’t ready. If you are scared, it’s okay, most white people are; you’re not alone.

If you are worried you’ll say the wrong thing, I want to push you through the worry. If you think you don’t know enough, I’ve got resources for you. If you have tried and stumbled and want some guidance, I’ve got your back.
If you want to learn with and from other parents, accept the #ConversationChallenge.

It’s free but not easy.

Talking about race can be hard…I get it. I wasn’t raised having these conversations with my parents but the cycle has got to stop with us. Because how can we expect courageous action if we are scared of the conversation? Time’s up.

I will lead you through 7 guided conversations designed to help you engage in open dialogue with your teenage children. I double dog dare you!

Pantsuit Politics

Thank you Beth from Pantsuit Politics for this beautiful tribute to Senator McCain.

I've seen several of you lovely people typing out everything that I said about Senator McCain on today's show, so here it is in full. Thank you for being wonderfully supportive and receptive as always. - beth

If you listen to Pantsuit Politics regularly, you know that I don't have many political heroes. The very word "hero" frightens me because it is eventually and always accompanied by almost certain disappointment, and a disappointment that wounds deeply. I'm sometimes envious listening to Sarah talk about Hillary Clinton. I wish I had that level of affection for any political figure. I've realized in the past few days that I'm closer to that affection than I recognized when it comes to John McCain. The word hero is tossed around casually when it comes to Senator McCain, and understandably so. His time as a prisoner of war, his decision to endure torture rather than be released ahead of his fellow captives, the physical prices he paid for his service -- he served with remarkable courage and sacrifice. But I view him as a hero less because of his bravery in battle and more because of his independent thought. I believe it takes more courage to challenge your friends than to criticize your enemies, and John McCain did this over and over again. As the world became increasingly partisan, Senator McCain remained commited to speaking his mind within the Republican party. It can be difficult to deviate from our party lines even from the comfort of our couches and smartphones. John McCain did it on the floor of the United States Senate, in front of cameras, and while looking directly into the eyes of his colleagues. This is real courage. I've never appreciated those who mocked the "Maverick" label and I feel real disdain for those who cheapened it through their conduct. Senator McCain did not spend his time endlessly railing about the left. Instead, he looked into his own party's eyes to say, we can and must do better. We need more Mavericks who follow that example.

Even as I felt disappointed in some of his decisions and comments during the 2008 election and even as I felt Barack Obama's call to change history, I voted enthusiastically and proudly for Senator McCain. Even as I disagreed with his aggressive foreign policy, I believed in him and his intentions. When I heard him tell a supported that Barack Obama was a good man with whom he disagreed, I knew that belief was well-placed. I long for another election between two fundamentally decent people who share a vision for a free and just America and differ in their visions of how to achieve that.

I did not agree all the time with Senator McCain, and in a way, that seems appropriate and important. He stood for bringing our own intellect to policy, for earnestly considering what is right and wrong, for putting our minds and bodies to the test when justice requires it. I am grateful for Senator McCain's life and service - including all the messiness of campaigns, the quiet strength so evident when he could not raise his arms but found other ways to speak emphatically, the wry remarks to reporters, and memorable calls to love and serve America. When all is said and done, John McCain is a hero of mine -- not because he is infallible but because he did his best and when he didn't do his best, he said so and made amends. I wish for more heroes who are beautifully human, who are willing to be wounded, and who fear moral bankruptcy more than death. Godspeed, Senator McCain. You left me and many better than you found us.

The new American Dream

Labor is a way of knowing. What we work ON is what we understand about the world.

What exactly IS "better off"? Why are more of us now living in intergenerational households? Happiness isn't a king in his castle. The happiest among us are those living lives ... intertwined with their neighbors.

Interesting thoughts from Courtney Martin ...

For the first time in history, the majority of American parents don't think their kids will be better off than they were. This shouldn't be a cause for alarm, says journalist Courtney E. Martin. Rather, it's an opportunity to define a new approach to work and family that emphasizes community and cre...

Catriceology: 30-Day Crash Course for White Women

Growing up biracial, but with a hard lean towards a white facing view of our world ... means that I've witnessed racism, but never been impacted by it directly. I grew up spending 99.9999% of family time with the white side and very little with the black side. It also means that because my physical appearance slants heavily towards "white passing", I've been able to comfortably sit in the middle of conversations when it comes to race, because people often don't assume I have a black father.

Starting tomorrow, I'm beginning a 30 day course with Catrice M. Jackson: International Speaker & Best-Selling Author as I've not done enough with my responsibility to address and break up racism and its long lasting impact - in my life and in the spaces of relationships I keep and foster.

It's time for me to do better in fostering space and moments for my white friends to hold themselves accountable, and to perpetuate (intentionally and authentically) opportunities for my black friends to feel that trust has been earned ... and most importantly to do that work for myself on an ongoing basis.

The course is open for enrollment until 9/10 if you are interested ... http://www.shetalkswetalk.com/30-day-course

Recruits, be warned. Husker coach Scott Frost is watching your social media

Good advice .... period! “Aside from GPA, when we’re recruiting kids, the next thing we’re going to look at is what kind of kid the person is,” Frost said. “And part of that is looking through every ounce of social media we can possibly look at. So if some kid tweeted something four years ago that’s bad, we’re going to know about it.

“And I’ll tell you this right now — if there’s anything negative about women, if there’s anything racial or about sexuality, if there’s anything about guns or anything like that, we’re just not going to recruit you, period. Piece of advice for you — what you put on social media, that’s your résumé to the world. That’s what you’re trying to tell the world you’re all about. That’s how you’re advertising yourself. Be smart with that stuff.”

If a football prospect wants to be recruited by Nebraska coach Scott Frost, he should know that the Husker staff will comb through his social media history checking for character. An uncle attending one of Frost’s camps last week captured the comments as part of his YouTube camp vlog. Frost told p...
