“Good Christian women leaders/people ought to stay in their place.”   “Disruption always does more harm than good.”   “Legacy is for the rich.”    Lies, lies and more lies.   If like me, you’d bought into that narrative, you’ve been misled.   For the past few years, I’ve been captivated by the stories of two men:
Adversity is never easy.   I remember being up for a huge departmental promotion from my employer years ago. I had dotted my I’s and crossed all my T’s. For all its worth, I was beaming with anticipation of taking on a new and larger role within my organization. In my heart of hearts, I
Aretha Franklin. Legend. Legacy. Leader.   “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” -Maya Angelou    The kind of legacy we leave will only reflect the kind of life we lived. Seems obvious, but there is a bit of irony in
