Time for #realtalk

#realtalk—situation  Often we place our livelihood in the hands of people who never asked to manage it—our employers.  I’m sorry but it’s true.  We miss the fact that in order for many organizations to survive processes had to be dismantled because they were either no longer effective (or efficient) and supporting them... Read More »

Change or Die

Who owns who?

Who owns who?

When you buy something, you can join any number of tribes on any number of days and feel part of something bigger than you feel.
