Inspiration & Wisdom
By Women's Executive NetworkMay 9, 2013
Recently at a WXN Breakfast in Calgary, 2007 WXN Top 100 Hall of Fame inductee and Corporate Director Kathleen Sendall was interviewed by WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery as they delved into a variety of questions. We think Kathy’s ‘Top 10’ list makes pretty good sense and is also a great conversation starter. Here are Kathy’s ‘Top 10’:
1. Never give up the search for the perfect mascara.
2. Never lose your sense of humour and ability to laugh, especially at yourself.
3. Listen - learn to keep your mouth shut and control your temper.
Curiosity Beats Criticism
By Camille BoivinApril 29, 2013
Today is a great day, because today we are bridging to an area I practise often with my coaching clients. It’s called Emotional Intelligence. (Chances are, you have heard of it, right?)

So you might be asking: where is the bridge, Cam, between Da Vinci and EQ?
The bridge is curiosity.Curiosity is such a gift. It opens us to the world.

How Dr. Rukhsana Malik Transitioned From High-Energy Physics to Senior Project Management
By Camille BoivinJanuary 28, 2013
Last week we met Senior Project Manager, Dr. Rukhsana Malik. It’s clear she’s an expert in solving problems and working with teams . She is the balancing point between business and technical perspectives, and has a knack – with the help of a board and some writing – to help people separate their work-problems from their emotional preconceptions. But how does someone with a background in high energy physics find themselves on a career path so far from the original trajectory? Apparently, it all started with a bit of Sister Leadership from Rukhsana’s own mother.
