It is kind of like I am off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Except, there is no man behind the curtain. Over the weekend, I visited the man I call the wisest in the world. This time the conversation was so provocative he asked me to

It has been several years since I have written an article about a gentleman I call the wisest man in the world. In a December 2, 2014, article, many were outraged by his comments and called him a eugenicist. While some did not like what he stated, others thought he was brilliant and provided real solutions to some of society’s most pressing needs. As a rule, he tends to think

For more than a century, people have believed love is the solution for almost everything. Yet, more than 50% of married couples divorce, even though they claim to have fallen in love. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is considered insanity.
In this video, I talk about a realistic solution to relationship problems.

When you watch Hollywood movies, the message is love will save the day. The same message is communicated in music. Yet, the divorce courts are filled with couples that relied on love to make their holy matrimony work. For some reason, love did not save them. In case no one has noticed, love has

The book I wrote, Here’s Why You Can’t Find Love, it is still surprising readers. In a recent interview with a psychologist, even he was surprised when I revealed how everyone is being taught to look for the wrong things in a potential mate. By changing this

In the US, Hollywood and romance novels have done a great job of shaping ideals of love. The eager handsome man who jumps through hoops to win over the passionate woman who is the love of his life. In the movies, they show

With change happening faster than ever, businesses need internal mechanisms that consistently orchestrate transformation. Transformation cannot be demanded of people. Nor can executives pay people to do it. Like a special forces team that is

Several years ago I wrote an article stating CEOs will become more people focused instead of finance focused. That means executives would come from sales and marketing or have backgrounds in psychology, social anthropology, economics and sociology. These executives would no longer be committed to financial reengineering or buying

In the most quintessential display of masculinity, last year four gentlemen interviewed me while they all sipped on spirits and puffing on Cuban cigars. They wanted to know my perspective on intimate relationships and what motivated

At some point, countries oppose one another. It could be for land or other natural resources. In other cases, there are behind the scenes politics the majority of the population never hears about. To deter conflict amongst nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was created. NATO exists to

This video will disrupt the minds of most people. Throughout history, we have been taught to believe in many things that later proved to be incorrect. In this video, I talk about how we are taught to be helpless, victims. While it is most likely not the intentional, the belief stops people from really understanding self. Many of you may find yourself experiencing cognitive dissonance while listening to this.
I would love to hear your thoughts.

There is an old debate. People question whether leaders are born or made. The experts seems to believe leaders are made. As history shows, there have been great leaders who moved society in an ideal direction. Then there have been leaders who left an ugly mark on history. Will tomorrow’s leaders reflect today’s mindset? Or will they usher in a movement that is desirable for every civilization?
This is a big and complex subject. Stay with me on this one. Most people think succession planning is only for CEOs of corporations. I would like to expand it well beyond CEOs or businesses.
When you are the CEO, you have to prepare the organization for the day you will retire. That means when you retire, there is someone who has been

Throughout our lives, we learn from many people and places. For some reason, we attempt to keep the knowledge in silos or chambers. Work is for work and love is for love. Are we missing opportunities?

Many people believe being a boss is all about telling others what to do. From another perspective, some of the most effective leaders give their people huge problems to solve. The leader steps back and allows staff and management figure it out. While this can be disruptive, it is a powerful path to breakthroughs.
The trick to this method is being able to navigate self and others through chaos and uncertainty. Those are two aspects of life that most want to avoid. Yet, the breakthrough is almost always on the other side of a breakdown. Therefore, you must be able to lead others through the breakdown.
What are your thoughts? How do you lead people into a breakthrough?

The word toxic has become a popular part of US culture. We call men toxic for being masculine. Women are toxic for being feminine. Soon we will call dogs toxic for barking. In the US, we have become so obsessed with accusing others of being toxic that some people are afraid to be themselves in public. Isn't that
