Book: Women & Power

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 23:00:57 +0000

I was excited to find that Mary Beard had a book – Women & Power: A Manifesto (Amazon) – based on her talks about the silencing of women. Of course I learned about it on The Eloquent Woman, and had appreciated the Famous Speech Friday posts about the talks that it was build on. I think [...]

Remembering the Eloquent Woman

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:00:27 +0000

Nearly ten years ago, I found a blog called The Eloquent Woman written by Denise Graveline. I read it diligently, and reading it I learned so many things. I learned about speaking in general, about structuring talks, clarity in scientific communication. I learned about the way women have historically been excluded from speaking, the way [...]

Book: Open

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:00:56 +0000

I read  Open: An Autobiography – Andre Agassi’s autobiography – out of curiosity and a desire to mix things up; I don’t think I’ve ever read a sports autobiography before. I did not expect to love it, but I did – it had me gripped, and I finished it relatively quickly despite rushing around. It’s a [...]

Inclusion is a Hack

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 13:00:35 +0000

I wish more people understood that (in tech) inclusion – as we talk about it – is a hack. Firstly, “inclusion” is a shorthand for “inclusion of the historically under-represented”. The “historically under-represented” piece is the reason why we need the hack. What started with the deliberate exclusion of people of color and white women from a [...]

Book: A Higher Standard

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 13:00:56 +0000

 I was recommended A Higher Standard, and was pretty excited to learn about the first woman to become a 4 Star General (not that I knew what a 4 Star General was at the time… but it seemed impressive). Although, I’m not wild about military analogies and violence of any kind so I wasn’t sure [...]

Managing Up and Down

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 13:00:31 +0000

“Managing up” can seem like a dirty word, I definitely thought so for a while, and deludedly aspired to be the kind of manager who did not need to be “managed up” (thankfully I have friends like Camille to call me on my bullshit). Now I can accept that 100% my team have to manage up with [...]

Book: Option B

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 13:00:23 +0000

I think I cried reading every chapter of Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy (Amazon), most of which was in public as I read it during my trip to Barcelona. I teared up in various restaurants around town, and on the plane home. It’s a moving book, but also a hopeful one [...]

Try This One Weird Tip To Increase Leadership in Your Organization

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 13:00:58 +0000

As leaders, most of us have been in a place where we’re maxed out. It can be tempting to just do it ourselves and hope things improve. Another thing that often happens is that it gets shoved on someone else, and they’re left to deal with it. As a rule, I try not to hand [...]

Book: Men Explain Things To Me

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 13:00:11 +0000

I’ve been meaning to read Men Explain Things To Me for a while, but putting it off because I worried it would leave me feeling even more despondent about the world. I’m so glad I finally got to reading it though – it was so beautifully written and thought provoking. How correcting women relates to silencing [...]

Powerful Questions

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 13:00:09 +0000

There’s a question in my coaching prep that I can never seem to answer. Debrief of last week’s inquiry. (a designated powerful question for the week – the power is in the asking of the question – getting curious and inquiring into its meaning for you.) Before each coaching session, I go through and answer [...]
