  • Do You Learn?

    Silly question? Maybe. Hang with me, please. This will be short – a couple / three minutes, tops. Do you know more than you did six months ago? A year back? Yep, we both know you do. How did you feel back then, before you knew what you know now? Did you sense there was something missing? Did you know you didn’t know? No, you did not. That thing ...

  • A Mistake, Responding Well, and a Public Call for a Public Apology

    I am about to break one of the rules of this blog. Years ago, I decided to never write about things that happen with clients until at least one year had passed. I am going to make an exception and write about something that happened very recently in the first part of this post. I confess I have been writing the second and third parts of this post ...

  • PASS Summit 2012, Day 1

  • Two New Slide Decks. Plus, the Week in Colorado.

    I had the honor of traveling the great state of Colorado last week, speaking at the PASS chapters in Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Denver.  At all three events, we had a stellar attendance and, at least in Denver, broke all the records in recent memory both in terms of overall attendance and in first-timers. ...
