She writes on Leadership pitfalls to avoid
Leadership happens in the relationship whether it is between two people, a team, a whole organization, a church, or a community. And that relationship is characterized by many of the attributes present in all relationships such as assumptions, expectations, values, emotions, successes, failures, dreams and disappointments.
She writes on Leadership Skill: The Fierce Conversation
But honest, direct communication is what's needed in our organizations and in our relationships. In fact, an unwillingness to have fierce conversations will undermine a team and, potentially destroy relationships. As leaders, we need to be willing to say what we see, what we sense. We need to be able to name the real issues and be in conversation around what is real.
