069: Sara Jane Rose and Sally’s List—preparing progressive champions

Women are getting more involved in politics as candidates across the United States. In Oklahoma, Sara Janes Rose has been front and center looking for women to run for office in Oklahoma to champion progressive issues, many of which are women’s rights issues. Sally’s List is non-partisan and has helped prepare women of both Democrat and Republican parties, who support a progressive agenda, to run. Sally’s list does not manage individual campaigns.

Rose started Sally’s List in 2010 in honor of her late friend, Sally Mock, who was an advocate for progressive women’s issues and a mentor to Rose.

In this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, I talk to both Sara Jane and Alyssa Fisher, the program manager for Sally’s List about how Sally’s List encourages progressive women to seek office.

068: Do you have itching ears?

Everyone is susceptible to being scammed. Even the smartest people can be fooled. President Lincoln is attributed with saying, “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” However, there is no evidence that he said those words as much as we would like to believe he did. It just sounds like something we think he might say.

In this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, I discuss the reason we might be inclined to believe falsehoods and fabrications. It has to do with the fact that we want to hear what validates us or promises us what we want. In either case, it’s because we have itching ears.

067: Disruptions provoke renewal

The history of the world is a history of disruptions. We human beings like predictability that gives us a sense of safety. We like to know what’s going to happen next so we can prepare for it. Disruptions throw us into a state of panic as chaos swirls around us.

But disruptions provoke a necessary renewal of the status quo by throwing it into chaos to shake us out of our ruts. It’s in the middle of this disruptive chaos that things get interesting and we adapt in ways we might not have thought possible.

In this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, I discuss why disruption is necessary and healthy for our continued survival. I share some examples and offer a perspective that disruption provides renewal. And that’s a good thing.

065: Disruption, chaos, and creativity

Chaos theory holds that systems tend to entropy toward an eventual state of unpredictability and chaos from which new patterns emerge. However, there is no way to predict what those new patterns will be. The possibilities are endless.

The status quo is an illusion because everything changes. In this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, I discuss this phenomenon and how our current experience with the COVID-19 outbreak is an example of disruption and the potential new systems that might emerge on the other side of dealing with it.

066: The status of women in Oklahoma—Kitti Asberry, Exe. Dir.

Kitti Asberry knows advocacy. She credits her father’s advice, “Nobody’s gonna give you anything, but don’t take anything that’s not yours,” with sustaining her through her experience as a union leader at Oklahoma City’s General Motors plant, as a political advocate and leader in her county and state Democratic party, and, now, as the executive director of the Oklahoma Commission on the Status of Women.

On this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, I caught up with Kitti at her office in the Will Rogers Building of the state capitol complex to hear about the variety of projects with which she is currently involved. We discuss her work with OCSW, the Oklahoma and National 20/20 Conversations on Women on Boards, and encouraging women to get involved politically.

Kitti is a graduate of Leadership Oklahoma (Class XXX) and a member of the Leadership Oklahoma City alumni board. In 2012, she was inducted into the Oklahoma Federation of Democratic Women’s Clubs Hall of Fame. In 2019, Kitti was named the Public Servant of the Year by the Women of Color Expo.
