Leadership development is not just for grown-ups. If you’ve been with me for a while you know how passionate I am about this. Most of us take a deliberate approach to developing other skills in our kids early on: we teach them to swim, to ride a bike, to read, and read music, as early as we can. Leadership development should be no different. The earlier we can ingrain these

On Being an Entrepreneur Mom:  The Inside Story thumbnail

There’s no better picture to sum up this year’s entrepreneur mom journey. My kids are in it with me and I with them. Seb (8) is the self-declared Chief Marketing Officer (he loves to say CMO)….he tells everyone he meets about how I can help them become better leaders. Ben (19) is a bit more subtle, but is kicking beneath the surface getting it done as the LGL Summer Intern (be sure to tune in on

The Most Dangerous Way to Measure Success thumbnail

Only you know if you’re accomplishing who you set out to be. Stop looking around at silvery glimpses of other people’s lives and judging yourself. Trust me, you don’t know the whole story. We never can. Define success on your own terms and stick to it.

In fact many moms hide their mommy status when interviewing for a new job. They may even strip their resume of relevant volunteer experience that would reveal their motherhood status. I’m in the other camp entirely. Most moms bring a maturity and level of endurance to their leadership that’s hard to gain as quickly from other leadership roles

Effective Networking:  6 Secrets Your Kids Know

We’d spent the last 5 days reconnecting as a family, completely dark from any semblance of social networking. Alright, I’ll be honest… all networking…each night my husband and I requested a table for 4 on this 5 night cruise to Mexico. It’s cool to meet other travelers… but not this time, we needed family and rest. The final evening’s entertainment was a magic show. My son

8 Ways To Nurture Leadership In Young Children

“Mommy, I’m not a leader.” Why do you say that? “Because John is the one that tells us what to do on the playground and we follow him. So that makes me a follower.” Ugh. Tricky. I’m not impressed by John’s “leadership.” I want my son (and all young children) to see kindness, listening, understanding, and caring about other people as important leadership

Inspiring Servant Leadership In Kids

Inspiring Servant Leadership In Kids

Simon says, following the leader, being line leader at school, many of the messages we share about leadership are simple: “I’ll tell you what to do, and you do it.” And if we’re feeling particularly cranky, “because mommy (or daddy) says so, that’s why” may even slip through our lips.
