What Brings You Hope?

December 1st, 2016 Miscellaneous

I once joked at a meeting about my role as a CEO.  I said my job was to line up the workforce somehow and have them all move in the same direction independent of me. I knew I had to do that, all while knowing that I had 2,000 employees, each with their own direction and passions. I want to…

Let’s Get To Work

November 23rd, 2016 Miscellaneous

  The election is over. Let’s get to work. I was happy to remind you all to vote, and now the election is over.   In the course of the first week after the election, I lost count of the number of conversations I heard about what we should all expect. I can’t count the number of times I was asked…

The Same Thing Happens Every Night

November 16th, 2016 Miscellaneous

Last week I attended a great training workshop on how the best leaders make everyone smarter. I learned so much in a few short hours.  The training was a little more digestible than the book, simply called, “Multipliers” , and was written by Liz Wiseman and Greg McKeown.  The idea is that as a leader, you can act to bring…

VOTE!

November 8th, 2016 Miscellaneous

Today we are asked to elect the next President of the United States. Last week, someone came to my home to encourage me to vote for his candidate. I told him that I would vote and so would my husband. I remember when I registered the first time. I remember my mother telling me to get educated about the issues,…

It’s All About Relationships

November 2nd, 2016 Miscellaneous

“It’s all about relationships” is the seemingly universal tagline for Lifesharing. We use it not only here at KenCrest but also for the State Lifesharing Coalition. Relationships are what it is all about. When we reach adulthood, we expect to make our own choices as to with whom we will live with and share our lives. Most often the agreement…

Get Paid For What You Love to Do

October 27th, 2016 Miscellaneous

How many of us remember the first time we got paid for doing something?  I remember mine as if it were yesterday.  I was about 8 years old, and I was paid to pick beetles off my grandmother’s rose bushes. I recruited my friend, and we were paid piece rate, a penny per beetle.  In those days three cents was…

Charlie’s Son

October 20th, 2016 Miscellaneous

When I was growing up, every Saturday night was movie night. It was the only night we were allowed to stay up late. Some of you may remember the show, “Saturday Night at the Movies”.  Every week featured family-friendly movies. As kids, we didn’t care what movie was on, because the whole idea was to stay up late. My parents took…

Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.

October 11th, 2016 Miscellaneous

Years ago, when our son was young, my husband and I ran a small cub scout troop. I reached out to a local special education contact that I had and recruited a few of the boys from their school.  My husband and I hosted the group of 10. The kids figured each other out.  They learned their individual strengths and weaknesses.…

Reaching Higher- A Friend in need is a Friend indeed.

October 5th, 2016 Miscellaneous

Last week, the inspirational bulletin of my church suggested that we all talk about a time when we were in need and someone helped us. That prompted me to tell this story of one of our clients in Delaware. It was a Friday afternoon in September, and Mr R was late getting home.  His staff had wondered if the bus was…

Just say “Yes”

September 27th, 2016 Miscellaneous

A month before I started at KenCrest, I attended my first big management meeting.  There were over 75 people in attendance.  I had no idea how I was going to remember everybody’s names.I used a memory trick by associating the person with something else.  It worked.  The first two people I met were Vivian Reese from Cedar. I deemed her…
