Visualize the ideal situation: I visualize myself in a small meeting with key players of a project I am working on. I visualize myself presenting my prepared material. I think through how “this could play out”. I try to imagine the questions the key players in the room might ask.

On Leadership

One Very Vivid Memory That I have is of a Duplex Apartment Fire in the Heat of July.
That Day a Small Woman in Stature was in High Demand, of the Many Tasks I had That day, I recall Being Lifted through a Window, Crawling in a Small Space, Extinguishing the Fire, Pulling the Ceiling and Overhauling.
Those were the Days that Prepared me, the Experience I Needed to Successfully Lead an Organization.
