Lessons Learned from the Ukraine War

By | June 29, 2022

[June 29, 2022]  Earlier in March, after Russia invaded Ukraine, I published two articles titled “Early Lessons from the Ukraine War” (here and here).  These were written less than three weeks after the invasion and were a good start.  Now, with four months of study, we have learned much more, which applies to those who study leadership.

By | June 28, 2022

[June 28, 2022]  Discipline is the key to a good life.  But, we don’t often ask the question, “What is discipline?”  Dr. Jordan Peterson1 does a great job of discussing the issue of ‘discipline’ and walks us through what he sees in the concept.
