“A willingness to see ourselves in perspective, and to view our problems as relatively routine, provides the emotional space to think more broadly and deeply.”
— John Engels
“An elephant matriarch does not rule by force or fear. In a time of crisis, every member follows her lead. Her authority is complete because she has gained the respect and trust of her family.”
Joyce Poole, Ph.D. Kenyan Elephant Researcher

One of the highlights of 2014 was my December 4th visit to the United States Military Academy at West Point.
At the invitation of Colonel Bernie Banks, Director of Behavioral Science and Leadership at the Academy, I presented a two-hour program on Advanced Coaching Skills to 35 company commanders.
All members of this racially and gender diverse group had field leadership experience in the Middle East. Many graduated from the Eisenhower School of Leadership in association with Columbia University. Among other duties, the commanders are responsible for individually mentoring West Point cadets. It’s in that capacity that Colonel Banks requested my assistance.
