More leaders need this right now than ever…

I had a fantastic mastermind session last evening. While we exchanged a lot of ideas, insights, and reflections as usual, the most important thought was shared by a participant:  “Sunil, I believe more people need to experience what you’re doing.

This too shall pass

Could this be the worst the world has ever seen? With all due respect and without minimising the seriousness of the situation — I don’t think so. We’ve see more than a dozen crises’ over the past 20 years such as the Y2K/dot com bubble burst (2000), 911 attacks (2001), SARs (2003-4), the global financial […]
