Listed below is a series of free articles to help you become a more complete and powerful person and leader.

They are divided into four development categories: Organizational, Professional, Team and Personal Development.

Some of these articles are my answer to a question sent in by readers from the Q/A section of my monthly newsletter, The “Whys” Leader.

These “newsletter articles” each come with a two or three minute video in which I expand or elaborate upon the issue at hand.

Feel free to read as many as you like, then after reading an article may I suggest that you send it to someone in your company whom you think might benefit from reading it.

Even better, please share it with your favorite charity, spiritual or non-profit organization.

Enjoy and then pass it along.

Your friends will benefit and you will be and feel the better for doing so.
