Simon Sinek: Practice Being the Last to Speak

Simon Sinek is a favorite around here. We’ve written about him specifically in the past, and there’s a huge overlap in many of the themes we teach… This is a great addendum to some of the posts we’ve written in the past on listening, understanding, and seeing the other side. Simon’s advice, Be the last… Continue Reading

To Be a Better Presenter, Prepare for Floods (or Anything!)

This post was written by Amy Fenollosa, Director of Learning at The Latimer Group Last week, we narrowly escaped a technological catastrophe… We had a total flood in our office.

Sheryl Sandberg and the Value of Sharing Your Story

Today’s post was written by Amy Fenollosa, Director of Learning at The Latimer Group.
