The 12 Dimensions of a Service Leader

In early 2006, I met a retired businessman who wanted some help with his writing and editing. We would meet for breakfast and have these great conversations.

One morning, I asked him what his story was and he said he had co-founded a courier company – one of those three-letter company names that didn't ring a bell. IBM, UPS... That kind of thing. I didn't recognize what he said.

After leaving the meeting, I started seeing DHL everywhere. Since then and over the years, I've been lucky enough to help this visionary business leader, and one of the books we wrote is The 12 Dimensions of a Service Leader.

Be inspired, check it out

Shark Rescue

Out of the 2008-2009 financial crisis came the motivation to launch and run a  campaign to protect sharks and our oceans.
There's still so much work to be done!

From 2009-2016 Shark Rescue helped raise awareness of the unsustainable and brutal fishery. Dormant but not dead, here are a few highlights.
