A New Annotated “Master” Presentation

Sáb, 20/09/2014 - 00:39

You’ll find the end result here—a […]

Call me a “motivational speaker”—and I’ll be tempted to punch you. On the other hand, I have collected a passel of “inspiring” quotes over the years. I put this little set together for a colleague. All yours … “This is the true joy of Life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as […]

My response thereto: As leader, commit yourself fully to helping everyone grow every day. Gen A. Gen B. … Gen X. Gen Y. Gen Z. Nothing new. Damn it. People you work with can smell your […]

Did you see the recent article, “The Post-Post-Apocolyptic Detroit”? Before I met Tom Peters, I lived in Detroit. My husband had an idyllic, cookie-cutter suburban ’60s upbringing there with a family full of auto workers. All his grandparents were immigrants, happy to see their children thrive in post-WWII Detroit. He spent the ’80s in downtown […]

Wow! But something was nagging at the back of my mind, And I finally figured out what it is. Namely, constant disruption—at […]
