    Dear Members:

    Why did the educator sprinkle sugar on their pillow on New Year's Eve?..... 

    ……. They wanted to start the year with sweet dreams.

    Laughter and joy are excellent ways to manage tough times, and laughter is scientifically proven to reduce stress. With our often-chaotic work and personal lives, we could all use a bit more of that tonic! And let's add some sweet dreams too.

    The Global Leadership League is also here to help you manage your complex lives. Five years ago, we started this organization as a way for us to become more connected in our profession, and we remain committed to giving you, our members, meaningful learning opportunities as you advance your careers. Yes, the global pandemic set our plans back a bit, but we are reviving ourselves along with others in the field. We owe our thanks to the amazing group of volunteers who not only founded The League but who help to run the programs for you.

    Please find the recording of our 2022 International Women's Day event HERE.  

    Irene Butter spent a part of her childhood in Nazi-controlled concentration camps, where she survived horrible conditions and tragedies. She tells her story on behalf of the six million other Jews who have been permanently silenced. Irene's account celebrates the exercising of empathy for others in even the most inhumane conditions, a relevant message in an age where similar hatreds and discrimination rise once again. Irene has shared the stage with peacemakers such as the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, and Elie Wiesel. She is a well-known peace activist, Holocaust survivor, and Professor Emerita of Public Health at the University of Michigan. Her award-winning memoir "Shores Beyond Shores, from Holocaust to Hope" is translated into five languages and available where all fine books are sold.

    This conversation was hosted on International Women's Day 2022 and was hosted by NAFSA's Women in Leadership Member Interest Group and the Global Leadership League.

    When was the last time you did something that scared you? 

    We know that comfort zone is so, well, comforting. But your professional growth could depend on you stepping outside of it.

    Are you aware of "conscious leadership?" Are you practicing it? Successful leadership should be defined by how much the leader focuses on others, also known as conscious leadership. These leaders honor their conviction and mission yet never lose focus of the elements in life that matter.
