I appreciate the people who, as leaders or directors or administrators, must confront hard decisions and the discomfort they cause.
It is the burden of leadership to pick up the awkwardness of change or hardship and clear a path for the people under their care.
Today, it’s cool & hip to distrust anyone in authority. That distrust isn’t unwarranted, but systems and institutions cannot function apart from trust. Leadership — and follower-ship — is relational.
I write. I design. I cook. I read. I make music. I talk to people -- all kinds of people.
I used to teach and hopefully will do so again someday.
My dream job would be a cross between barrista and consultant, with a large helping of international travel and bohemian wandering through concerts, museums, galleries, and open spaces.
Somewhere back in time, my students started calling me "RameyLady" and the name stuck. I like it. There's a Ramey-man too. He's a much better writer but he seems to be too humble to share it with the world....at least, not yet.
