Time = Love

Be Authentic!...@vnona

Someone needs your wisdom. They are crossing a bridge you already crossed.  They need to hear your story of how you were sad one moment, courageous the next, tired but kept going, took a break and started to live again. Your words may make the difference and cause someone to try again.

Leadership Tuesdays: Looking For Safety In A Storm...Faye Wattleton

“The only safe ship in a storm is leadership.” 

--Faye Wattleton




Every other Tuesday, WOMEN AT LIBERTY presents Leadership Tuesdays, a platform for a variety of voices and resources to develop, encourage, and strengthen women leaders. Today's article is, "How to Defeat the Dangers of Disrespectby Dan Rockwell (Twitter: @leadershipfreak).  You can find this concise article posted on our Women Making History Facebook page.  

No one wants to be disrespected.  When leaders disrespect those whom they have been given the privilege of leading, they negatively impact the productivity of the entire team.  They also encourage an environment where team members are more likely to disrespect each other. This type of behavior decreases morale and overall productivity.


Leaders must set the tone. They should respect their team members and they must also insist that team members respect one another.  Dan Rockwell's article gives some examples of disrespectful behavior and practical tips on how leaders can show value for others.

I Like Me!

Never be ashamed of who you are. You have to accept that not everyone is going to love you back, that's why it's most important to love yourself. It's not about being what everyone wants you to be, it's about being yourself and finding someone who truly loves you for what you are.

Leadership Tuesdays: Accomplishing Much...Helen Keller

“Alone we can do so little. Together, we can do so much.” 

--Helen Keller




Every other Tuesday, WOMEN AT LIBERTY presents Leadership Tuesdays, a platform for a variety of voices and resources to develop, encourage, and strengthen women leaders. Today's article is, "Leaders, Keep An Eye [On} Your ‘I’" by Joyce E.A. Russell.  You can find this article posted on our Women Making History Facebook page.   

It can be tough sometimes to find the right balance between taking credit for your accomplishments and presenting accomplishments as a team effort.  As women we are encouraged to highlight our individual work and not be afraid to talk about our successes.  However, as a leader you have to find a balance.  If you lead a team, it is important to share credit with team members especially when they are present.  Most of our difficult business problems can not be solved alone.  Good leaders and good team members are needed.

Leadership Tuesdays: Power...Beth Revis

― Beth Revis, Across the Universe
