We are now 15 days removed from the national elections and I have very mixed emotions of where we are as a nation.

On one hand, I am openly happy and relieved in the knowledge that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in as President and Vice President on January 20, 2021.  On the other hand a not so secret hard truth was also laid bare on Tuesday, November 3rd,…… this country has a very long way to go.

A man I love once told me that I am what’s wrong with the world.

“You,” he had exclaimed in frustration. “You are the problem!”

I was in my early 30s and working as an Executive Producer in a TV newsroom. My sixth newsroom in four states, which to me symbolizes the sacrifice and hard work I had put in to build a successful career and advance in an industry that I can only describe as a 24/7 pressure-cooker.

I was having dinner with my parents when my dad, clearly exasperated and not intending to hurt my feelings, declared that as a member of the media, I was the problem.

At Think Tank of Three, we passionately believe that every person must stand against racial injustice.

We are women, empowering all women. This space is a space for you. We want black women and women of color to feel safe and know they have a voice here.

While major brands with vast resources have responded with large donations and advertising campaigns, the more relevant question for us is what can we do?

More importantly, what must we do?

Do you get updates on your phone saying how much screen time you have in a day? 

The average adult spends 11 hours interacting with screens a day. We use the internet for work, for play, for communicating… it’s nearly impossible to escape this aspect of our lives. 

We’re spending so much time in the digital world, it’s easy to get caught up in using bad manners and losing sight of what’s going around you in the real world. 

Netiquette, or internet etiquette, is the unspoken code of polite behavior that should be practiced in cyberspace.  There are no official rules for netiquette, but if you follow common sense, essentially you should be respectful while online.

What comes to mind when you think of a leader? Often, we think of people in the spotlight, like politicians, CEOs, and celebrities. But we can be everyday leaders too, and it doesn’t have to be big to be impactful. You are a leader, you just might not know it yet!

In this episode of Think Tank of Three, the trio talks about everyday leaders and how to become one.

I’m sure you’ve considered hiring a management consultant when you were faced with a business obstacle that was difficult to solve on your own.

But management consultants aren’t always the best answer.

You’ve heard of the phrase, “fake it ‘til you make it?’”

In an article from the Harvard Business Review, the authors reveal all of the ways consultants live by this motto. Some consultants are sold to us as experts even if they necessarily aren’t in reality. Here’s why instead of hiring a consultant, an agile coach would be a better investment for your company.

When I was young (and sometimes still now), my mom would say, “Kathryn, the Reader’s Digest version, please!”

I loved to tell stories.

And I loved to talk to my mom. Still do.

Reader’s Digest is the largest subscriber-based magazine in the world. It features short stories, jokes and advice. SHORT stories. I loved reading it when I was younger. But I couldn’t for some reason, tell a story succinctly like the “Reader’s Digest version.”

It’s easier when you write. When you write, you can go back and edit over and over and over. I highly recommend that. We’ll talk about that in a moment.

Life is hard. You don’t need me to tell you that. In fact, some of you may be thinking that it’s the understatement of the year! But I think this is a good thing. Life is hard when you live hard. You work hard, you mom hard, you love hard. And you wouldn’t have it any other way because by living hard, you create meaning and purpose. Success doesn’t just simply happen — unless you live hard and make it happen.

Living hard is all about defining your “why”. It’s not about how you make it happen, or what you do to make it happen, it’s about why you make it happen.

Why do you get up in the morning?
Why do you push forward when you fail?
Why do you do what you do?

If you’re looking for your why, your purpose, try living hard!

Throughout my career, I’ve been privileged to have mentorship from brilliant female leaders who show me what I am capable of, and who give me the power to explore and understand myself as a woman and a professional. Working alongside strong women has taught me a lot about the relationship dynamics it takes to be empowered and successful, both in and outside of the workplace.

I’ve had great experiences working with women, and I’ve had experiences so difficult that I started to become jaded about the overall idea of working with a female team. But, I will tell you this: every single experience was dependent on the female leadership, and the overall approach to building a strong team dynamic.
