    For women who may be “leaning out,” Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg’s urging to “lean in” requires some behavioral changes and deviations from how many women are expected to or accustomed to behaving. Fortunately, we have the power to do this for ourselves, through tiny tweaks that actually reconfigure our brains in ways that may make us more assertive, confident, relaxed, risk tolerant, and fearless.

    They’re the largest generation to enter the U.S. workforce and every business owner and talent recruiter is trying to tap into their DNA and engage them. These 18-35 year olds are 69.2 million-strong and wield a powerful voice. They are our future. How do we persuade them to work for us and bring their passion to our companies?

    Today, a growing number of top executives are recognizing the value of flow and exploring how they can increase flow across their workforce. Create More Flow (CMF) was developed to respond to the growing need for actionable strategies to increase flow in everything we do.

    Fall is my favorite season — cool, crisp air, shorter days, and football. I don’t even mind the hundreds of thousands of leaves in my yard. The hours I spend clearing them away provide ample time to think.

    But for some, fall can be a somber time. The gray skies and fallen leaves can be a reminder that certain things need to die to make room for the new life that will come with the spring.

    Leadership presence, that illusive but “we know it when we see it” quality, is a blending of personal and interpersonal skills that when combined, send all the right signals. It’s how you show up, how you make others feel, and how effectively you communicate both verbally and non-verbally. It’s the “wow” factor that sets you up for the next promotion and gives your career that extra boost.

    That’s what leadership presence is. Here is what it is not:

    One of the most discussed elements associated with employee performance and profit is great leadership. The various molds of a triumphant trailblazer that we have created throughout the last two or three decades promises a fictitious character that’s meant to either appear as a new aspirant or an existing associate who’s inundated with training courses, assessments and coaching until they’re ready to heroically save the day!
