How to Become a Champion of Change

If you want to lead at work, keep your eyes (and ears) scanning for workplace “litter” (corrupt employees, gossip, wasted resources, unreliable partners, etc.) Show others where the litter is and get them on your cleaning crew.

What 9/11 Can Teach us about Focus and Success

Each day, we have a choice to focus on our fears and doubts or on our passions and joys. And that choice has to be intentional. It takes discipline not to get distracted by the news, the naysayers, or the doubts in our head.
