Near the end of the workshop, Everyone A Leader, we were asked to create and then share with other participants a statement about what…

Books can’t give you experience

By Camille Smith / May 10, 2018

I adore books. My shelves are filled with titles that promise insights about leadership, coaching, human dynamics, strategy, compassion, values.  After madly highlighting these work-related books in my effort to absorb their wisdom (and thus become wiser myself), I take a break and read fiction.  As it often happens in these non-work readings, the Ah-Ha…

Values are more than Skin Deep

By Camille Smith / August 6, 2014

Being an adult dedicated to helping people access their potential, be values-driven and experience an uncommon sense of satisfaction and success, I’m curious as to how folks wind up where they do and how they navigated the path to get there. Being a child of the 60’s dedicated to looking good, I followed the female…

What’s in your compass?

By Camille Smith / May 13, 2013

Hear any of these lately? We value integrity. People before profits. Teamwork. Responsibility. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Zero waste. Value diversity.

The garage is clean — what’s left to pass on?

By Camille Smith / July 18, 2012

After last month’s uber-cleansing garage clean-out and revelations, I now walk unimpaired across the floor, dodging only the occasional fur ball.  The walk is both exhilarating and disconcerting.
