“Trust The Trainers. Regardless of the topic, most agencies have someone that has made it their mission to be an expert in the area. The problem is that most of them haven’t sewed on stripes or obtained some higher rank that gives them a seat at the boring table. If a leader wants to provide their officers with the safest environment possible, empower those that are dedicated in doing just that.”

Yesterday I posted an article about my recent experiences surviving Burning Man.  The traveling companion I mentioned in the article is my friend Nathalie.  I met Nathalie on a very adventurous trip to Costa Rica a few years ago and she accompanied me to Burning Man this year.  Here are her impressions of the event. 

Nathalie is incredibly smart and a far better writer than I am.  She has recently left a very lucrative corporate HR career to focus on her own business coaching, teaching, and developing leaders.  If your business is in need of some HR or leadership development, I’d encourage you to contact her.
