Tired Of Losing Good Players?

Tired Of Losing Good Players?

All I wanted was a place where a sweet, bright, compassionate, curious, courteous little boy could go kick a soccer ball around with some other kids. So we looked at a local soccer club sanctioned by an apparently reputable national soccer organization. We paid a few hundred dollars and were quite excited. We suited and geared up. We had a… Read more →

A Memory Of Memorial Day

A Memory Of Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, 1998 – thirty years after I came home from Vietnam – I had the honor of being asked to speak to a few hundred Americans assembled on a parade ground. I was asked about what it was like “ … in those days …” As I look back at that speech I remain proud that I told… Read more →

A Few Results Thoughts

If you seek a leadership “position” or a leadership “title” because you want to be – or to be seen as – a leader you have missed the entire point. Inspiring others isn’t about us. It’s about them. It’s not about a title or a position or calling one’s self a “leader.” That is simply ego riding on the proverbial… Read more →

An Apology

In an act of frustration and yes, anger, I posted something on my website, Facebook and elsewhere that could have resulted in a third-party questioning the ethics and reputation of a long-time, much trusted and beloved friend. Anyone who attempts to do that is, quite simply, wrong. Had I known of my friend’s other relationships I would never have posted… Read more →

"This Way To The Egress ..."

“This Way To The Egress …”

Just as I thought. That so-called, “de-fund the police movement” has not truly caught on. It was a flash-in-the-pan media-circus moment and many of my friends and clients fell for it. So, once again, a lot of anger and worry and angst and victim-think from chicken-littles and hand-wringers and pants-pissers wasted on reacting and emoting and feeling badly and lobbying… Read more →

We Need A New Political Party

We Need A New Political Party

We need a new political party – the party of Americans. By Americans. Of Americans. For Americans. It cannot include seditionists, traitors, cult worshippers, insurrectionists, authoritarians, provocateurs, cheats, hypocrites, advocates of civil war or downright pandering wackos selling the soul of The Republic for a few sound bites on ad-driven media and a few votes from the obscenity that is… Read more →

The Effective Job Performance Review

The Effective Job Performance Review

First, a little Bedtime Story for all employees – particularly for those who might think this organization exists to give them a job: Once upon a time there was a magical place where ones continued employment and promotional opportunities were predicated upon their willingness to demonstrate more value-added in the workplace than the sum of the resources they consumed. The… Read more →

A Trained Organization versus A Learning Organization - Installment 2

A Trained Organization versus A Learning Organization – Installment 2

As I noted in the first installment of this opinion piece, I recently completed an online course provided by Harvard University entitled, “Introduction to Family Engagement in Education.” My initial intent was to continue learning as much as possible about how our family could improve our effectiveness as coaches for our son as he negotiates a different field upon which… Read more →

To My Friends In The Last Best Place

To my friends in Ravalli County – and throughout Montana … please put aside your unfounded anti-science claims, your victim-like lamentations about your “rights,” your purely emotional partisan snarkiness … and focus on your responsibilities to all our beloved other friends in Montana. In order to claim that you are, as I am so fondly inclined, “The Last Best Place”… Read more →

A MUST READ For All LEOs

A MUST READ For All LEOs

I am honored to know Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich. He is dedicated to family, to his community and to his profession. When politics run roughshod over reason and integrity, when liars gain prominence and are obscenely blessed by the courts, when other elected and appointed officials stand by and do nothing … well, Sheriff Ozzie is the guy you want on… Read more →

Was I Pissed When I Wrote This? Yeah, Probably …

One of the stupidest, most insidious, seemingly plausible things foisted upon employees and the public by too many Chiefs, Sheriffs, Colonels, County Commissioners, Legislators, City Councils, City Managers, County Administrators and Mayors across the United States is the notion of “do more with less.” What a stupid, stupid thing to believe and a stupid thing to say. It betrays an… Read more →

Do Not Take Your Buddy's Paycheck For Granted

Do Not Take Your Buddy’s Paycheck For Granted

Recently a long-time friend retired as Chief of Police. After he had been at home for a few weeks, he called me. “Hi!” he said. “Greetings, my Friend!” I replied. “I need your help with a little thing. You see, I am increasingly concerned that my wife is going to kill me in my sleep.” “What?!!!” I responded, knowing his… Read more →

You And I Are Not Above Saying, “I love you.”

Please, please listen to one another. Before you blow that off, look around you. There are too many broken family relationships, too much negativism and hopelessness in the workplace, too much child abuse, too much domestic violence, too many people with financial, drug, alcohol and coping problems, and, my friends, too fn many suicides. Please, please, LISTEN to one another…. Read more →

Rid the ranks of the “It won’t work” and replace those folks with, “How can I help?” Rid the ranks of “Us versus Them” and replace those folks with “Let’s build coalitions.” Rid the ranks of “They are out to get us” and replace those folks with “We need to listen, adapt and focus on Strategic Advantage.” Rid the ranks… Read more →
