  • Food For Thought – Pare Back Complexity

    In my Trusted Advisor program I discuss the concept of wisdom with participants.  We draw out what it means and what it looks like.  I always ensure that simplicity gets onto the whiteboard.  At the end of the day, we all know that when we hear about something new that is very, very simple we are singularly impressed.

  • My First Post in Global Risk Community

    I'd like to introduce myself in this post. Having served in Defense for 20 years, I gained lots of experience in Crisis Management and Risk Management. Those experiences helped me in many other areas of life and profession. In Production, Marketing, and in Management I applied my previous experience and could get through successfully. I found the Global Risk community interesting and packed with lots of information. I also write of several sites on Various topics. I have written more…
