Good Leaders: Is it Time for Your Bucket List?

On Father's Day weekend in 1999, I made the commitment to become and author. I created an outline and wrote the first 2000 words while flying from Minneapolis to London to visit my sister Liesl.

Good Leaders: Can you relax today?

I'm tired. The four months of January through April are the busy season in the leadership consulting business. Last week I got up before 5am, five days in a row. It's a good tired. But I'm tired. With that, good things are ahead...

Good Leaders: What habits help you be grateful today?

The words, "we felt compelled to do something in our son's honor," caused the lump in my throat last Friday. The speaker at the Good Leadership Breakfast, Marc Miller, was sharing how in his state of grieving over the sudden loss of his son, he felt called to start a non-profit to honor the name of his child, Gunnar.
