What Legally Blonde Taught Me About (Not) Being A Brand

Legally Blonde

I recently became completely obsessive with Legally Blonde: Musical. Totally not still in vogue, but the Broadway show was recorded for MTV back in the day so my sister and I stayed up late one night googly-eyed and giggling over Elle, Emit and their better-developed-than-the-movie romance.

The Weakness In Strengths-Based Leadership

The Weakness in Strengths-based Leadership

I recently worked with a Vice President who was an up-and-comer in her firm’s global division. She was the “go-to” person on technical issues relating to Asian markets and she was intentionally developing her leadership style to incorporate coach, mentor and develop others in the company to work effectively with foreign partners. This was her primary career strategy until she ran into a buzz saw that threatened to leave her stuck at the VP level. It turns out that while focusing on the technical aspects of global operations, and developing employees to manage them well, she had failed to develop some of her bosses at the same time. Her “managing up” skills were weak at the executive level and she was uncomfortable with the delicate education and persuasion necessary to bring along some of her superiors.

Are Your Habits Stopping You From Reaching Your Goals?


Let’s say that one of your goals is to lose weight, get in shape, and live a healthier lifestyle.

That is your goal or destination – the place you want to go.

So what would the habits be, that would move you towards that goal? And which habits would move you away from that goal?

Thirty Days Facebook Free


In my last post here on Owning Pink, I acknowledged my addiction to Facebook and made a plan to take a thirty day sabbatical from posting, commenting and lurking on my personal Facebook page. I hypothesized that in doing so, I would free up space in my life for much deeper connections to the people around me and to my own spiritual and creative nature. The sabbatical has come and gone and I'd like to share the results of my experiment.

11 Ways To Live Fully -- And Stop Comparing

live fully

I always cry on my birthday. And I really don’t even know why. And that’s hard to admit as someone as introspective as I am. I like to know myself. And I really can’t put a finger on this one.

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Even in the summer, the weather here in the Pacific Northwest can be moody, unpredictable. In the grocery story, in the teller line-up at the bank, people shake their heads and say: “July!” mournfully.

Leaving Behind The Observer/Narrarator's Life

Leaving Behind
Memory Lane

Not long ago, I was cleaning out my closet and came across a container filled with pictures from the pre-digital camera phase of my life. There were pictures of my wedding, college graduation, honeymoon, first apartment, first house, my dogs in their puppy days, the second graders I taught, the kindergartners I taught, family gatherings, and life in general. A strange thought went through my mind as I strolled down memory lane with those photos. This is what life looked like back when I simply lived it.

Iron Man vs. Athena For CEO – Leadership Battle Of The Sexes?

Iron Man vs. Athena for CEO – Leadership Battle of the Sexes?

I recently saw Iron Man III with my family and it was a good time. Bad guys. Good guys. Destruction. Even a humble pie big enough to go around. As I enjoyed the pyrotechnics and good-guy triumph, however, I was reminded of how completely our comic books reinforce the most unhelpful of bad boy leadership stereotypes.
