#LeadershipTuesdays: Shine Brightly!...Marianne Williamson

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

– Marianne Williamson (Author)

#LeadershipTuesdays: What Are Your Employees Telling You About The Organization?

How employees relate to individuals internal and external to the organization is a reflection of its leadership. --Nona O.




Every other Tuesday, WOMEN AT LIBERTYprovides Leadership Tuesdays, a platform for a variety of voices and resources to develop, encourage and strengthen women leaders. Change is hard. Changing habits and behavior are very hard. Widely accepted research states that it takes about 66 days to change a behavior. 


If changing our own behavior and habits are very hard, imagine how difficult the job a leader has trying to change an organization's culture and behavior. However, no matter how difficult the task, the leader is responsible for the overall culture and climate of an organization. Because at the end of the day, as stated in today's quote, the organization's behavior is a reflection of its leadership. 

For good advice on changing organizational behavior, read today's leadership resource found in the Wall Street Journal, "How to Change Your Organization’s Culture" by Allan Murray. For more information on Leadership Tuesdays and WOMEN AT LIBERTY, click here.

Your Actions Will Define You...@vnona

If you're not a thief, you will not steal whether you're a beggar on the street or the CEO. Your #behavior defines who you are. If you want to change the things you don't like about yourself, you have to change your behavior. You must also change your environment and who you hang out with. Eagles hang out with eagles.

#LeadershipTuesdays: Go After Your Dreams...Carmen Nava

"If you really want to go after your goals and your dreams, it does involve taking some risks. Sometimes letting go is the hardest part, yet it opens all sort of doors.”

--Carmen Nava, Senior Vice President, Entertainment Group, AT&T



Every other Tuesday, WOMEN AT LIBERTYprovides Leadership Tuesdays, a platform for a variety of voices and resources to develop, encourage and strengthen women leaders. Today's quote comes from Carmen Nava in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Ms. Nava has more than 30 years of experience in operations, marketing, external affairs, human resources, customer service and sales. She currently leads AT&T Entertainment Group’s efforts to care for customers with more complex needs, while providing continuous improvements across the business.

This L.A. native and USC graduate took risks to get to where she is now and through her quote above she encourages leaders to do the same. She says that she left a wonderful community, home, and schools in L.A. to get the experience she needed to have the career she now has. She resides in Dallas, Texas, with her husband, Robert. They have one daughter.

Her story encourages us to take risks and not be afraid to leave the familiar in order to get the experience we need to obtain senior leadership positions.
