Back in the Saddle

Every cowboy needs a rest and ta git sum ejukayshun. It’s been challenging and fun to explore Twitter and tie it together with Facebook and WordPress to make it possible to post something once and have it show up in multiple places.

Last Sunday I attended a workshop on the above and apart from the subject I was very impressed with the facilitator, Rebecca Le Heup. I expected the presentation to be somewhat limp but was happy that at the very least Rebecca was gorgeous. However, I was amazed how professional and in command of the subject Rebecca was. There were maybe twenty people in the class and we all introduced ourselves. She did write our names on the board but never referred to it and called us all by name the rest of the day.

I only mention this because of my experience through the years. In business I’ve seen many, many women that have been promoted to positions they were not really qualified to be in. This was done in order to smash the glass ceiling that needed smashing but resulted in weak performance usually hidden behind a wall of superiority. I’m a feminist and I suppose that these promotions were a necessary thing but they’ve had a weakening effect on business. This was partly why Rebecca floored me. She deserves to smash through any glass ceiling and perhaps even the roof. What a great example of a businesswoman (or being PC, businessperson).

Anyway, I’m back in the saddle and ready to round up more riveting subjects starting next week.
