Wendy’s Window: “No Room For Mediocre”
November 15, 2018
Madeleine Albright said, “There is plenty of room in the world for mediocre men, but there is no room for mediocre women.” History will show 2018 as the year of the woman. Whether we look at what came from the #MeToo Movement or the results from the midterm elections where a record number of women around the country were voted to various positions.  People have fallen in love with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and when she fell and broke several ribs, we were even willing to give up our own to help her heal.  We have examples all around us every day of women who are anything but mediocre. Even when we fall, we get right back up.   ... read more »
Wendy’s Window-Have People Totally Thrown Out Protocol and Etiquette?
October 25, 2018
I have owned my own company for over a quarter of a century and during that time I have had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life who encompass every station imaginable on the ladder of leadership and responsibility. Experience has taught me that no matter where you may stand on the ladder, showing respect and common courtesies to another human being is not only the right thing to do, but also the best thing to do. My grandmother would say, if you were to fall down the ladder, you better have been kind to others so the person below you will catch you.  ... read more »
Wendy’s Window-Turning Stumbling Blocks Into Stepping Stones That Lead to Great Leadership!
October 18, 2018
The question has often been posed: are leaders born or made?  Most theorists believe that leaders are made.  If this is true, all of us have the potential to be a leader. I believe that people become leaders based on exposure, experience and education. We are all made up of a combination of what we’ve been exposed to in life, what we’ve experienced, and what we make the effort to learn.  ... read more »

Over the past few years there’s been a major shift in bringing to light the injustices that women and girls have been experiencing for years.  There are many movements such as #MeToo, #BlackGirlMagic, #BringBackOurGirls and #GirlsRock just to name a few that are working hard to keep this message alive. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window-Fall: A Time of Change
September 27, 2018
I recently attended Mount Saint Mary’s University’s 2018 Women’s Leadership Conference. The theme was, “Responding to the Call: Leading in Times of Change.” The subject matter and discourse throughout the day was extremely timely given today’s climate. Even this new season, fall, represents a “time of change.” When we were kids, as much as we enjoyed summer, we looked forward to what fall would bring: going back to school, getting new school clothes and a chance for a fresh start.  ... read more »

Wendy’s Window-Suicide Should Not Be The Answer
September 14, 2018
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, close to 1 million adults report attempting to commit suicide and 800,000 people die due to suicide every year worldwide. It has also been reported that calls to suicide prevention hotlines have doubled since 2014.  Why is this?  The answer to this question is complex.  There is no one answer. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window-Traveling Opens Our Mind and Our Perspective on Life
July 19, 2018
Traveling across the country as well as abroad allows one to take in a variety of opinions and perspectives. Understanding different attitudes and points of view can help navigate the awkwardness of sensitive topics that I was curious to discuss. As I traveled through various parts of Italy and Greece recently, I had the opportunity to share my thoughts about forgiveness, humanity, hope, peace, love and happiness to a variety of people and what I found is that all of us have the same basic concerns.  One of those concerns pertains to the direction the world and mankind is headed in today’s political and global climate, but overall people still believe in humanity and that goodness will prevail.  ... read more »
