Do you want to get trained, or do you prefer to learn?

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 17:57:47 +0000

“I see you’re listing the Straight Talk for Leaders as an Executive Course. What’s an executive course?” I got that question more than once after launching. As explained in the need to launch to learn, I overlooked some key details. Despite the energy I put into building something useful, I never explained it. Allow me […]

If you really want to learn, you need to launch

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 16:50:36 +0000

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 20:55:10 +0000

Ready for some straight talk on your leadership? Let’s start with a gut check question: Are you valued for your leadership as much as your technical competence? Or does your organization consider you a leader or just the security person… with a team? Survey says… most answer “the security person.” It’s confirmed by perception surveys […]

How a missed opportunity led to the leadership straight talk framework

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 17:57:18 +0000

“I’m here to sell you.” As he uttered the words, I winced as I looked up from the back table. The audience of security leaders acted in unison. Heads went down. Phones and devices came out. Eyes darted. People stood to leave. Opportunity missed. But then he added, “I’ve been selling to security leaders for […]
