Respect is the Solution to Everything

Comedian Rodney Dangerfield made famous and drew a lot of laughs for his line, “I get no respect, I tell ya.”  In reality, a lack of respect is not a laughing matter.  In fact, when it comes to leadership, it can be one’s undoing.

The Future of Everything General George S. Patton once said, “Lead me, follow me or get out of the way.” More than 50 years later, that famous quote takes on new meaning as we transform the way that modern workers both lead and follow.

Pay Positive Energy Forward

Pay Positive Energy Forward

The Future of Everything. Many years ago I had the pleasure of serving some local folks at a food kitchen.
