Last year, I sat down and did an on-camera interview and discussion with my very insightful friend and former SVP of Walgreens, Randy Lewis. Our little talk produced 17 individual segments and 2 bonus clips loaded with my business expertise and case histories, much of it based on the central concept of Alfred Adler – the pioneering founder of Individual Psychology.
Behold that old sink in a small enterprise, hardly
a centerpiece effort, but still taking up space in a
corner of the warehouse.
A wire soap dish hangs from the faucet and a ragged
gray towel has its place dangling from a rusty rack at
the sink’s side, and the faucet drips.
Do we talk about the faucet presenting itself as a
still-life scene, or the drip or just the sink—as its own story?
Tired of being on teams that don’t work and waste your time? You know there are many teams that are successful, but you, and lots of other people, don’t know the secret to their success.
