Conflict with Class – Scalia and Ginsburg

Scalia and Ginsburg

In this political cycle in the United States, Donald Trump has raised (or should I say lowered) the bar when it comes to conflict.  His sophomoric responses to reasonable debate are mirrored by a lot of people on both the right and the left on Facebook.

Classless conflict is not a new phenomena.  Our society has been on a steady slide towards this mentality over conflict for many decades.  Can we stop the politicians from acting like children?  No.  But we can stop our children and ourselves from acting like politicians.

Leaders Keep Commitments. Period.

How Strong Is Your Character?

“(Commitment is) doing what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you were in when you said you were going to do it has passed.”

James Brown, Co-Founder Arena Growth Partners

We all make commitments to others. Sometimes we wish we hadn’t made those commitments. It happens to me all the time. I’ll set an appointment with a potential client. I’ll say “yes” to helping someone in their yard. I’ll tell my family I will take a day off from work. But, then something happens. Continue Reading…

  • Meetings are boring.
  • Ideas are vanilla.
  • Results are average.
