What It Means to Make Black History

What It Means to Make Black History It's Black History Month! History is like a quilt, and each of us has our square in it – our own place, our own colors and patterns.

As we move higher in an organization and take on bigger leadership roles we have to let go of being the “doer”, learn to delegate. Build other skills: influence, collaboration, strategic planning, thought leadership, etc. It’s a tale as old as time.

Hurray! You have a fancy new ...

January 8, 2024|

It's a New Year! Will There Be a New You? One of my favorite things about January 1st is that it feels like a page has turned, and not just on the calendar. After wrapping up 2023, reflecting on successes and – yes – failures, we get to decide what comes next.  Who do you want to be in 2024? One of the best pieces of advice I’ve heard was this: You get to make a choice. And if you don’t like the outcome, guess what? You get to make a different choice. I encourage ...

December 6, 2023|

We Did It Again! Oops, We Did It Again! Just a couple of weeks ago, we had ‘the talk’ about celebrating our achievements. Maybe it put some good vibes out in the universe… because Ascentim just claimed another award from Inc.
