None of my business comes from Matt Dietz, a Farmer's Insurance agency owner and seasoned podcaster, focusing on business and finance.  It was a pleasure to be a recent guest where we talked through the history of Design Group International, the methodology of Process Consulting, and my work with Maestro-level leaders.

Stepping away, stepping in

That which combines in us

Maestro-level letter is a weekly, Sunday morning, brief essay developed for executive advising clients and colleagues.  Given last week's blog post and video resource on the Three Turns of the Executive Leader as compared to the life of Moses, this edition of the letter seemed a good sequel.

Three Turns of the Executive Leader (video)
