Become a FourWay Winner

Become a winner in life's four domains – work, home, community, and self (mind, body, and spirit).

This is the main idea in a program called Total Leadership that I teach at the Wharton School and at companies and workshops around the world.

Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life.

The only way to fail with an experiment is to fail to learn from it.

Failed experiments give you, and those around you, information that helps create better ones in the future.
