Dave Gardner's "Thank God It's Monday" on Too Much Ouzo? #leadership #greece

Greece had a referendum a week ago and voted “no” to accepting the terms of financial bailout from the European Union. The “no” vote stems from nationalistic pride, not common sense. While the Greeks were momentarily happy for “standing up to the EU,”…

I've had my office space at Pacific Workplaces in Sunnyvale for over 6 years. Keith, Pam, Kimberly and Lori make this an extraordinary place to do business. People who came to meet with me were always impressed by the facilities and how they were treated by the team. Beautiful facility, fabulous team and wonderful tenants.

Making the complex simple
Introduction

I get up every morning to share this truth with executives globally: in this moment, anything is possible.

This means...

  • ease and simplicity replace frustration and complexity
  • people, processes and systems seamlessly and tightly connect my clients and their teams to their customers and partners
  • my clients become sought after by prospects, customers, potential employees and investors
  • revenues and profits soar 
  • business is exciting again. 
The reality is simple: Your future really is right now. Anything is possible.
