From March 27 to April 11 my wife and I sailed aboard the luxury cruise ship, Azamara Quest. We stopped in the Azores, Gibraltar, Cartagena, Mahon, Cannes and Nice. It was a really tough gig, but dang it, somebody had to do it. My wife and I happily complied. Actually, she just went along for…
So you want to be a thought leader, do you? Seriously … if someone asked you to come up on the stage, could you do it? Would you do it? The number one reason why people are lousy speakers is because they don’t have anything to say. If you have something burning inside, you’ll find…

Now THAT’s leadership. Well done, Zahra. Seriously, can you teach me how you did that?
I spent more time in the car driving to and from San Ramon from my home in Sunnyvale but the 20 minutes of jumping up and down (it’s how I talk – can’t help it) and the 10 minutes of Q & A that followed made the trip well worth it.
