Are You Ready to be First?
It's not unusual for a leader to step into leadership unprepared. However, as a ”first lady” aka ”leading lady”, the role can be devastating! Often when not equipped for this spiritual journey, one can become resentful of being thrust into a position that they felt was not what they were called to do. My guest, Stephannie Solomon, knows first hand what it's like to be a ”leading lady” and how to identify and overcome barriers to this leadership role. Please tune in! To connect with Stephannie please go to her website at www.stephanniebooks.com.

Do You Lead with Frigidity Like a Polar Vortex?
Our routines can cause rigidity as a leader. When rigid,  it causes flexibility that can create tension which leads to stagnation. There's a comfort in being inflexible, it means you don't have to change. Regardless of the reasons why we get comfortable in our routines, to be effective requires agility. Agile leaders are able to think and make decisions quickly and are adaptable. By being prepared through planning they are able to navigate through ambiguity and not be paralyzed by it, even in the midst of a polar vortex.
