Want to be a Rockstar Leader?  Be Genuine.

Want to lead like a rockstar? Be genuine. Do you really want to be mistaken for the devil on the floor? You know, the one who wears Prada and never gives eye contact? Be aloof, and whether you are really a good person or not, we’ll never know. It’s the old corporate mindset: be removed, cold, unaccessible. The rockstar leaders that you can identify have pushed through that.…

About our hair at work: Let us live. Leave us alone.

Here’s the deal: that our hair is even a topic at work, positive or negative, is microagressive. Policing, monitoring even providing runway commentary at work is unnecessary, and it is annoying at the very least. Others have to dye their hair purple to get this sort of attention at work. This is the second time that sisters at this news station faced this scrutiny publicly. First with Demetria…

It can make a huge difference on IG too if you’re about business on the platform, like I am. Mine is always evolving to make it tighter, more concise, visual and always highlighting the “main thing.” This is your opportunity to communicate the value you bring. I get…

Karen’s gonna Karen

Last night’s VP debates put our superpowers as women of color on display. It showcased a professional black woman’s ability to navigate spaces that were not built with us in mind with grace, resilience and no nonsense. Kamala represented us well.
