Leadership Griot

My Twitter followers have come to know that I use “leadership smarts and strategic communications to change the world.”  These attributes reflect my life’s purpose: to make a difference in the world; to speak up and out when it comes to treating people fairly; to share what I’ve learned with others;  and to be imaginative in finding answers to big questions and solutions to big problems.

The Leadership Griot blog is inspired by the women I’ve worked with, learned from, been mentored by, and named for the West African oral tradition of “griot” or community advisor and leader.  Here I’ll discuss leadership tips and strategies, particularly those geared toward women — from millennials to “grown-up Girl Scouts” who want to step into their leadership professionally and in all aspect of their lives.

Having lead dynamic and diverse teams in nonprofit, foundation, corporate, government and political organizations, I bring 20 years of experience in leadership development and team building.  I’m most excited about the opportunity to guide women in identifying their work and life goals, and helping them achieve all that life has to offer.

I look forward to our conversations.
