Watch The 'Tude, Dude

Last week, two boxes arrived for my children from Amazon. A dear friend of mine emailed me and told me she had sent them each a book. And she was wise enough to know that opening the box is part of the delight. So she sent two separate boxes. I brought them in from the front porch and they squealed with delight.

A path of interaction...

The RBC team here is growing. This growth has inspired me to think a little more about the nature of teams. What makes them tick? why do they work? why do they fail?

Different talents and strengths are brought to the table to be shared effectively and utilized in the best possible… Continue
