In that show, we covered how important it is for us to connect and collaborate with others in order to provide the service and assistance that we were meant to deliver. Speaking from my own experience, it takes a lot of focus to figure out…

This week I had the honor of hosting General John E. Michel in my podcast Leading Beyond the Status Quo to tackle the question; Can leadership be learned? As the General explains, in the Military, their goal is to help individuals activate the latent talent that is within them to accomplish extremely complicated assignments. I completely agree with the General in his view that no one is born with all the necessary traits not only…
