Abuse of Power, Code And System...Frederic Bastiat

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men [or women] in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."

#LeadershipTuesdays: Leading Ethically...Linda Fisher Thornton

Ethical leaders set the tone for an organization. Their example is the levees for team members. How they handle breaches in organizational values will determine how the organization operates both internally and externally.

#LeadershipTuesdays: Seizing Opportunity

"If a window of opportunity appears, don't pull down the shade." 

--Tom Peters

On Tuesdays, presents #LeadershipTuesdays, a platform for a variety of voices and resources to develop, encourage and strengthen women leaders. Opportunity. We all want to get good opportunities and no bad ones. Good opportunities are ones that we are happy to receive. Ones where we believe that we can be successful. Bad opportunities invoke fear and dread in us and we believe that the outcome will not be worth our time or effort. We certainly don't believe that they will yield a successful outcome.

But what if we did not let fear or comfortability drive our decision? What if we put more value on how much we will learn, grow and contribute in the situation we are considering. It's easier to shrink away from challenges and situations that make us feel uncomfortable. However, l believe that leaders take on challenges, gain valuable experiences that they can share with others and grow their capacity to lead and function in a multitude of situations. Take the challenge and step out of the shade and your comfort zone. Open the window, pull up the shade and seize a new opportunity.

Follow #LeadershipTuesdays on Twitter, @LeadershipTues, to see daily posts with resources that help you develop and strengthen your leadership skills. Happy #LeadershipTuesday!

"You represent a people and culture the world will never know. They lived, toiled, suffered and then worked some more so that you could exist in this moment. So embrace this moment.

And as you go about your day and live your life, remember you represent their sacrifice and achievement. "You are your ancestors' wildest dreams." Now Represent!"

Shoot Really High...Cori Gauff

"My goal was to play my best. My dream was to win. That's what happened. I think people just kind of limit themselves too much. Once you actually get your goal, then it's like, 'What do you do now?' I like to shoot really high so that way I always have many goals along the road, but that way you have the ultimate goal."

--Cori "Coco" Gauff, 15 year old professional Tennis player
