    The Courage to Change – MLK 2018

    There is no great reconciliation, unity and peace to come without truth, without amends, without real apologies and ownership of wrongs. One cannot slap forgiveness unto pain like a Band-Aid on puss. It just won’t work. We are not wired like that. The wound must be cleaned first. When I…

    Communication – What Works

    Click on Picture for excellent tools to communicate effectively This is so true. I had a conversation with a client last year that taught me a valuable lesson in communication. We were working on a project with a killer deadline and a lot at stake for my client. I had…

    The #meToo movement moved me to create a course addressing gender equity. Companies often flee to sexual harassment training when gender roles, stereotypes, masculine codes, history, implicit bias and empowerment to stop harassment and inequity is what’s really needed. Women will soon be the predominate demographic in the workplace and…

    Draw More

    I watched Graham Shaw’s Ted Talk and was really impressed by the way he was able to take something that seems so complicated to people and make it super simple.

    I know many people think they can’t draw but they can. Everyone can, it doesn’t mean it’s perfect, or going…

    CARP in Infographics

    For week three of 6710 we are discussing CARP, four basic principles of design. When searching for an infographic that illustrates good use of CARP I went to my Pinterest account and just scanned through all of my pins looking for one that stood out to me. I thought this…

    Fail Forward

    Productive failure is already atrendin connected, collaborative, learning.  Research is mixed regarding learner center pedagogy and more controlled approaches. What we know for sure is we will win some and lose some in life.  Learning to fail forward is a win.

    Fear of failure is a common barrier…

    Of Koi and CARP


    One of the most common and familiar designs in traditional tattooing is the Japanese koi. He appears in a variety of ways on the human body, following the natural lines and patterns of the wearer’s skin, musculature and bone structure. He symbolizes overcoming challenge and adversity and represents a …

    Everyday CARP-ing


    CARP in design work is essential to use to ensure that the product maxes it’s purpose for the audience. I could have copped out and said that CARP just makes things “great”, but I went with the more professional response. I’ve been in the INTE program for 3 semesters now, …

    Reflections on the 4th semester

    I began my fourth semester of the ILT Master’s program at UC Denver about two weeks ago. This semester means I have finally begun the second half of this program and am on my way to crossing the finish line. I thought it would be a good idea to do…

    How should companies respond to the Muslim Ban?

    As concern about the impact of the latest executive order banning people from 7 Muslim countries from entering the U.S. grows, how should companies lead on this divisive issue? We can trust the research that integrity is of central importance to effective leadership.  Appearing incongruent will undermine your mission.

    Reflecting on your legacy, President Obama

    As I sit here, tired, drinking a Red Bull so I can finish this change proposal for the last class, in the last semester, of my Masters program all I can say is thank you Mr. President. It was President Obama who urged us back in 2009 to go back…

    Starting my semester in…Portland!


    I figured after a long break between the Fall/Spring semesters that the only thing I could do to re-energize was to go on PTO and get out of Colorado… for the first week of new classes! It was a spontaneous decision to come out to Portland last week, and I …

    2016 was a good year for music.


    We’re a few days into the new year, and I want to share my favorite 10 albums of the 2016 with everyone. No new albums have been released in 2017 yet, so this list is still in time. I wanted to write this post a few weeks ago, but it …

    Trayvon and Trump

    The outrage bubbled up in me like a volcano.  Hot like lava. At 10:30 pm I turned off the TV as early results showed him in the lead.  Surely this will turn in the night and I will wake up to some hope the idea of America could be real. …

    I wish everyone would take a step back and consider what they DID learn beginning in Kindergarten for most…we take turns, we do not shout at each other, we do not take things away from someone, we talk politely, we help, we are respectful, we collaborate and do our best, …

    on Passwords


    Learning by the seat of your pants can be rewarding, but it can also be exasperating. I am going to go with the exasperating for now, particularly passwords. On the culminating months of my CU Denver INTE trek I am STILL looking up and asking for and getting texted codes …
