Retreating from the Whirlwind

The biggest challenge for most leaders is retreating from the whirlwind of business and life to get some space to reflect, refresh, adjust and renew. In business leaders are paid for the quality of their thinking but sadly because of the intensity of business that quality gets eroded. I am proudly associated with the Below The [...]
