We see change everywhere. We have experts on change management and we tell leaders and employees to embrace change. It’s BS. Yes, it really is. Not that change doesn’t build character – it certainly does! But it’s easy to be passionate about the value of change when it’s our idea, our choice.

Weekends rock in our household. We sleep in and whoever sleeps the latest is the winner – we’re trying to convince my daughter that sleeping late is a good thing.

Is there really a glass ceiling? I don’t buy it. But I could be wrong. I know there are more men in leadership positions than women. I know there are industries where men have the advantage.
