Dear Micah/ WBC Friends,

Welcome to Spring, and Greetings to the Micah/WBC family,

This month John Fontana selected an article that originated in "Business Day" and later appeared in condensed form in the New York Times. The material is an interview with Lois Braverman who is CEO of the Ackerman Institute for the Family;Lois is a psychotherapist by training, and the theme of her discussion with reporter Adam Bryant is "Making Room for Differences."

John invites us to explore our family origins and make connections between family and work. In dialogue with Adam Bryant, Lois Braverman tells her three generational story of strong women and how that relationship influenced her leadership development. As Micah/ WBC tries to make connections between faith, family and work, these comments are quite appropriate.

When reading the article I also liked Lois' thoughts about "what makes the big difference in relationships" and how her approach affects leadership style. I was also impressed by Lois' comments about companies that get "bogged down" with "them" versus "us" attitudes. Her ideas about maintaining balance between empathy and tough decision making about people also resonated with me.

This selection is brief, but powerful. There are many insightful comments.

Enjoy the new season that brings nature's rebirth and the gradual transition to warmer days.
