This is an update on my new book – LIVING in the Light of Day. I am so very proud of this – it’s my best book yet.

With so many approaches and theories on leadership available, most of which are well worth exploring, I wanted to share with you what I know the evidence-based research shows to be the one link that ties almost every other leadership theory together … that link is INTENTION.
Altruism for many people conjures up needing to almost give up one’s life and dedicate it to a cause … which is great for those so inclined, but for most of us, that’s not going to be practical or desirable.
The really cool thing about being clear on your personal values is in difficult times, they become your guide and blueprint for making the best decisions and taking the best actions.
