A Platform of One’s Own

I heard a negative comment about Jada Pinket Smith’s new Facebook show which features three generations of black women having very transparent, vulnerable conversations.

I didn’t really understand why Smith using her very large platform to share what she’s learned on a variety of topics would be perceived negatively. And I wondered if the commenter was using HER stage similarly.

Rules of Leadership

I didn’t always make the best personal or professional choices during my military career…I wasn’t the savviest about cultivating mentors …I avoided the Pentagon like the plague. But my intent was to work hard in every assignment, be my best self, in and out of uniform, and always put myself in a position so I would decide when my career would end.

Because I knew I would not be given multiple chances to make mistakes.

“If you’re going to play the game properly you’d better know every rule.” ~ Barbara Jordan
