Resolution: This Year Create a Stronger, Smarter Organization

With this new year, you may be looking frantically for a new way to improve your organization’s competitiveness, talent, staying power, and smarts. You’re not alone.

The summers following his recovery were different from those before, now knowing firsthand one action can change existence. This was...

most noticeable in the middle of the road.  When running and playing on our small cul-de-sac, we looked up and around more than ever before. If we heard a car, even in the far off distance, we moved to the side. We readied ourselves for even the possibility of danger by getting out of the way. ... [read more]
