Dare to Disagree

How do you feel when you dare?

Jackie recently spoke at a conference with Margaret Heffernan. While sharing a ride to the airport together they quickly discovered they are kindred spirits with similar passions. Margaret’s TED Talk illustrates how conflict and disagreement should NOT be avoided, but should and must be embraced to inspire our BEST thinking!

Watch Margaret’s TED Talk “Dare to Disagree” here.

Lead He for She


If you market to, sell to, hire, work with, live with and/or love girls and women then this is a must watch (it is 13 highly engaging and potentially transformative minutes).

Emma Watson is advancing the United Nations “He for She” campaign She is formally inviting men into the gender equality conversation. We applaud the invitation and think it is worthy of continued attention. It’s time we work together, men AND women and COLLABORATE to strengthen our collective power.

If not YOU then who, if not now then when?

Surround Yourself

You are known by the company you keep.

That company (those friends) can draw you up (make you better) or they can drag you down.

Who should you be intentional about spending more (or less) time with?

7 Things Servant Leaders Say!































A great quote from one of the biggest thinkers we know and have written about,

Jim Goodnight gets it!

Servant Leader Sayings!

Change your words… change your world. Your words can be your greatest gifts or your most destructive weapons. Words and tone provide a window into your vision, your values and your ability to engage and inspire others.

So, whether you are running a company, leading a team, or managing a family, here are 7 things servant leaders say often to communicate more effectively and draw the best out of others.

1. Here’s our plan.

Lead with vision. Share a picture of the results you want to create. People will offer great suggestions if they understand the bigger picture. People appreciate a direct line of sight. Once people understand the where and why, then they can help define the how. A clear vision will also keep people focused and on track. And clarity gives everyone the confidence to say “no,” to things inconsistent with achieving your vision.

2. What do you need?

People need to know that you care about them personally and professionally and that you want them to succeed. Once you share the vision then it’s important for you to leverage every person. Servant leaders help pave the way for others to stretch, grow and develop.

3. Tell me more.

Ask for input and listen to understand. Let people know you’re interested in their ideas. Give others implicit permission to share their opinions. Zip it! Staying quiet, even if it’s uncomfortable, invites others to engage and offer ideas and insights.

4. Way to live our values!

Celebrate and recognize people who live the values. When people use the values to make good business decisions, engage in servant leader behaviors to add value to others, let them know you noticed. Make your values a part of your everyday conservation.

5. You can count on me.

Your team needs to trust you. So let them know, frequently, that you’ve got their back. Then you need to work like heck to prove it and deliver on your promises.

6. We can do better.

Good isn’t always good enough! Never let good get in the way of great. Celebrate people when they do well, but always be willing to coach people when they don’t achieve their potential. And always be an example. Don’t be afraid to lead by example, admit your mistakes and share your development plan – model self-awareness and change.

7. Let’s celebrate!

Be careful, don’t create a culture in which the only reward for great work is more work. Instead, make it a habit to celebrate wins (big and small). People are much more willing to work hard if they are given the opportunity to play hard too. As a team come up with some inexpensive but meaningful ways to celebrate your wins and offer inspirational shout outs to people who have earned them.

We want to hear from you. What are you doing to inspire a Culture of Servant Leaders?
