In my consulting work, I see problems I'm not sure how to fix. As a speaker, I get tired of saying the same things. I write a book so I can learn deeply about topics I believe are important, and so I can solve (or at least understand) difficult problems. Once I start writing, my inspiration comes from experience (e.g., personal stories) and from reading great books.(less)

So it’s only fitting we are naming the barn cats Jö, Héh, and Göh in honor of The Three Sisters. Before the colonists arrived in Central Virginia, the Monacan people lived here.Keep reading

“What we find changes who we become.”

“The journey transforms the destination.”

“time when learning how to learn (and unlearn) is central to success. Instead of hiding from change, let’s embrace it. Each time we try something new, we get better at getting better. Experience builds competence and confidence, so we’re ready for the big changes, like re-thinking what we do.”
