Leadership

“Where books are burned, they will, in the end, burn people, too.” Heinrich Heine By: Gabriela Yareliz I write this in reflection of what we have been witnesses to, in the past two years. I won’t pretend to be some brave crusader, as I recognize in retrospect that in important moments, my dissent was aContinue reading “Leadership”

The Values that Stand the Test of Time

By: Gabriela Yareliz I keep thinking about how much values matter. When children are tiny, parents do their best to try to instill manners and certain values in their children.

Often, when we remove ourselves from the lens, we see things more clearly, and weContinue reading “The Roots of Relational Failure and Success”

The Lottery of Love?

By: Gabriela Yareliz Allow me to build my thesis: There are things that are very important to people when they are looking for a partner. We’ll call them the “nonnegotiable.” Weirdly, some can be amended by a persons choice to change or change of opinion; others are what they are.
