Most of us are critical about our leadership abilities. Often the conversation we have about our leadership is that we’re not enough or not good enough. We're tough on ourselves. Rarely do we stop and acknowledge the positive aspects of our leadership.

We can train ourselves to seek out the positive in how we lead. And this is what we’ll explore with my guest Dr. Kathy Cramer.

Dr. Cramer is a psychologist, Emmy winner and Oprah Winfrey Show guest and is passionate about possibilities and potential.

Join us as we discuss the discipline of leading from the positive and explore Dr. Cramer’s latest book Lead Positive.

There’s a mystique about bosses. Too often we place unrealistic expectations on them and that has an impact on the quality of the relationship. We create barriers difficult to scale in learning how to work best with our manager.

When we allow ourselves to see the benefits of an imperfect boss, possibilities emerge in transforming the relationship to one that can be fulfilling and enriching.

To talk about these benefits, I’m talking with former executive, coach, consultant and author Karin Hurt.

Karin is the author of the new book, Overcoming an Imperfect Boss.

For the longest time the measures of success have been power and money. Yet such measures leave many feeling as though there is more. The pursuit of these successful outcomes is often marked with poor personal care and sacrifices that chip away at our passions, hopes, and dreams. 

In this episode, Arianna Huffington presents an alternative to the traditional measures of success. It’s what she calls the third metric: well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving.

Join us as we discuss the third metric and Arianna’s new book, Thrive.

What do star performers do to let their leadership greatness emerge? How do you mine the wisdom of star performers to help others in your company or on your team create what my guests call a "star factory."

My guests today are Dr. William Seidman and Richard Grbavac. They are the authors of the book The Star Factor.

Together we discuss how to create a culture that lets more stars emerge in your business.


We all have a simple choice to make each day; however, the reality is its simplicity is what eludes us. We often overlook this simple choice. The choice is this: what if we choose to change something for the better. What cause are you willing to stand-up and think "What if . . ."

For any of us to do work that matters, there comes a point when we must choose to stand for something, or fall for anything. Today's episode is for those who are willing to choose a cause and stand up for it.

I interview CEO, author, consultant Patti Johnson. We explore themes from her book Make Waves.
