The blog Good.co recently published a very useful infographic that’s making the rounds. They aggregated much of the data associated with workplace engagement- and disengagement. In one neat package, they sum up the actual cost of ignoring the growing disengagement problem… What to do?! Well, it starts at the top. If you want engaged employees,  read more »
I recently attended an international conference for Christian book buyers/sellers from around the world. Now I’m preparing to deliver a keynote speech at a national conference for book lenders—i.e., librarians. I’m excited about this opportunity because I’ve loved libraries since I was a kid. When many of my friends wanted to play outside, I preferred  read more »

One of the defining characteristics of authentic leadership I talk about most often is the willingness to do what is right… …even when it’s not easy, convenient, or expedient. Last week I tested another group of Junior Black Belt candidates. Throughout the test the instructors hand one of the candidates a page with a difficult  read more »
This is the 13th (Oooer, not superstitious, are you?) in a series on characters and places featured in Joinings:A Seared Sky. This background information isn’t covered in the book but will enhance the reading experience. For some of my people there are character drawings, supplied by Alice Taylor or myself (but I'm still learning how to draw, so bear with me!), maybe a video interview, and accompanying script. I’ll do short pieces of fiction, deepening knowledge of certain minor characters as... read more »
