I use this blog to collect and make available some of my articles, insights, and guidance for the business owners, salespeople, and top executives I coach. My clients can easily find my best guidance on goal setting, running meetings, stress reduction, and other topics important to anyone running a business. You can even learn how–and why–to meditate. I have videos, instructions, posters, and research results on this blog and a podcast on iTunes.

You are welcome to use all this in your work and to pass any of my posts along to your colleagues. I only ask that you preserve the attribution to me and not alter the content.
