Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on

Recently I received an invitation from a man to connect with his adult child on LinkedIn. He went on to underscore the value of networking. While I agree that this can be useful, this could also be putting the cart before the horse. Think about it. Networking is all about exposure. But what is getting […]

Leadership and Love: Great Bedfellows!

Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on

At first blush (and blushing), love and leadership are not strange bedfellows. My dissertation for my first doctorate was on mate selection.

Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on

The other day I watched “Michael Phelps equal the record for medals won by an Olympic athlete when he claimed silver in the final of the 200m butterfly as Chad le Clos of South Africa took victory with the final stroke.” But what I observed next was perhaps a stunned Phelps seemingly snub the friendly attempt […]
