Leadership Thought 101… 4 Things That a Staff Needs to Know to Succeed:

Perhaps you’ve heard the old adage, “you’re only as strong as your weakest link.” Some times the weakest link in an organization is the result of a person not being in the right slot.

A Message From 1984…

In 1984 I read a book in which the author stated the following… “Pursuing freedom in an absolute sense disrupts the balance between freedom and form. A free culture relies on the form given it by its laws and morality to maintain order. Societies that lose this delicate balance may for a time become chaotic, […]

Church and State Myths…

Go Vote…

This will be the 14th presidential election in my lifetime and I believe that it may be the most important one to date.
