Become a better communicator, a better leader, and a better human.

Leadership, strategy and communications can be a bit dry, and in some cases, authors make solutions sound prescriptive. As if a list or a formula will help you out of your jam.

Here’s the thing: we spend so much time bogged down by everything coming at us today that we miss many of the lessons that have been with us for decades, centuries, or millennia.

Leaders abound in literature and history, and their stories (for what is history, but a set of stories?) can serve as lessons and guideposts today in communication, leadership, and integrity, leading to better relationships.


“Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.” — Samuel Johnson, 1775


You don’t need to have a grasp of arcane historical events, the ability to quote Tennyson, or the insight to draw parallels between then and now. I’ll do that for you.

Won’t you join us?


Thanks, and I’ll see you on the internet.

Oh, and you’re probably wondering about the bow tie. The bow tie is timeless and timely: it never goes out of style because it’s never in style.
