Imagine this scenario. You are scrolling your Facebook feed, and you come across a post with a negative and inaccurate stereotype about your home state or country.

The Time is Now: Race, Denial, and Healing 

September 26, 2019 by Vicki Flier Hudson No Comment

I want you to imagine something with me. Imagine that there was only one Holocaust museum in the whole United States. And imagine that only a handful of US Americans knew it existed.

August 30, 2019 by Vicki Flier Hudson No Comment

What Is Global Leadership? Working in the corporate sector gives me great access to the latest business buzz words. They come and go about every couple of years, and some of them are more useful than others.

Get in Alignment! A Mini-Teambuilding for Busy People

June 27, 2019 by Vicki Flier Hudson No Comment

These days, everyone is busy. This is the most common word I hear among friends, clients, and colleagues. We are processing so much information via email, web, Skype, social media, and more.

Too Busy to Care About Culture?

April 25, 2019 by Vicki Flier Hudson No Comment

A manager walked down the hall of his U.S.-based multinational company looking puzzled. He sees a colleague from Brazil who asks him, “Is everything okay?” “Yes,” says the U.S. manager. “I just have so many meetings today that I’m not sure when I will get my work done!” Later in the evening, a global team ...

This blog was originally posted in 2015. I wanted to share the message again a few years later, as we could all use a little uplift!  Work/Life balance. Countless books have been written about the subject, and I’ve attended countless workshops whose aim was to help me achieve that goal. I hear the phrase across ...

February 28, 2019 by Vicki Flier Hudson 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I repainted the ceiling of my music room. It was a pretty awful task, to be honest. Imagine standing on a chair holding a roller and trying to paint evenly upside down. All while not dripping paint all over yourself. Why did I engage in this activity from Hades? As many ...
