The Ceramic Cup

I heard a story about a former Under Secretary of Defense who gave a speech at a large conference. He took his place on the stage and began talking, sharing his prepared remarks with the audience. He paused to take a sip of coffee from the Styrofoam cup he’d brought on stage with him. He took another sip, looked down at the cup and smiled.

Primed to Perform

Recently I was encouraged to read Primed to Perform by Neel Doshi, and Lindsay McGregor, and I could not have been more delighted. The style of writing fits precisely with my learning style of essentially teaching by example. The case studies and examples are compelling and the data yields tremendous value that I found to be directly and immediately applicable to my daily work life; and to a lesser extent also with how to help my kids be more successful too.
