Blog Slacker, but not a total slacker

Have been busy since March.  Not writing or blogging, but have been working on improving my graphic faciliation skills and using them in focused presentations. Two topics over the past few weeks have kept me busy.  One a conversation on perceptions of and pursuing quality in institutions of higher education (in September) and the other on priorities of online students at a student association conference in Bloomington, MN(October, 2010). 

In each conversation issues of quality are key.  Have also been continuing my reads about women's leadership and qualities of our leadership as this topic continues to intrigue me.  Lots of good articles out there, but for tonight share the following thoughts from a  Caliper Study:

About Women's Leadership Qualities

1. Women leaders are more persuasive than their male counterparts.

2. When feeling the sting of rejection, women leaders learn from adversity and carry on with an "I'll show you" attitude.

3. Women leaders demonstrate an inclusive, team-building leadership style of problem solving and decision making.

4. Women leaders are more likely to ignore rules and take risks.
