We don’t know when, we don’t know how, and we’re not even exactly sure what the new reality will look like. But at a certain point, this too shall pass, and organizations will be in growth mode.
A teacher (I can’t recall which one or I would name them) once gave my classmates and me a piece of advice that stuck with me: In a stressful situation, imagine the worst thing that could possibly happen, consider how you would react to that, and stop worrying in the meantime.
The United States is home to the best universities and research institutes in the world. Our research institutes have played a central role in making the United States the most advanced, innovative and prosperous nation in the world.
To me, it was a thunderclap. Years ago, when I was in Congress, we were in the midst of a tense, contentious debate. Members had gotten irritated, levying charges back and forth, and tempers were rising. It was starting to look like we might just go off the rails. Then one member stood up, a…
The simple news clip caught me totally by surprise. In an instant I was back in my senior year of college, on my feet and pumping my fists in joy over that incredible, wonderful, improbable 1980 Olympics victory of the U. S. hockey team over Russia.
I read with much sadness the report of the Bryan City Council meeting. After reading about the proposal of the DORA project, I could not help but compare this proposal to by-gone days:
They’ve been called the snowflake generation. Some leaders say Millennials and Generation Zs are adverse to hard work. I disagree, strongly. My team and I regularly work with organizations brimming with young people on fire for work. They difference is, younger generations want meaningful wo…
Plenty of people who say they support Donald Trump do so with this caveat: I may not like the way he says something but look at what he’s done. Problem is, when you take a closer look at what Trump has done to hurt the livelihoods and healthcare of his base that argument quickly falls apart.
Right now, many Ohioans are struggling to make ends meet. Even people with supposedly-middle-class jobs don’t feel stable. Wages have barely budged, and the cost of everything is up – higher education, health care, child care, and – critically — housing. We are in the midst of an affordable …
The older you get, the more the immutable laws of nature are revealed to you. Monday afternoon immersed me in a hands-on tutorial of one such law: The difficulty involved in working on a ladder is directly proportional to your age.
A great tsunami of events have been hitting the newspaper business. It isn’t hard to figure out that the growth of the internet and the slow death of smaller retail businesses has lead to a steady decline in newspaper stability.
The new year is a time to look back on the accomplishments of 2019 and look forward into the new year. Reflecting back on 2019, I’m really proud of the work my team and I have done in Congress to help Ohioans and their families.
The words passion and purpose are often used somewhat interchangeably. It might surprise you to learn, purpose and passion are two distinctly different things. And one is significantly more effective for driving performance than the other.
Let me get this straight: Kamala Harris and Julián Castro are out of the presidential race, while Pete Buttigieg and Tom Steyer are still in? And there may not be a single person of color onstage at the last debate before actual voting begins with the Iowa caucuses? And this is the Democrati…
A machete-wielding man’s attack on American Jews in New York on the seventh night of Hanukkah last month was yet another chilling reminder that a wave of hateful anti-Semitism still infects our country.
Most Ohioans can get access to a steady, fast internet connection at work or home. Unfortunately, for Ohioans living outside our big urban areas, broadband access can be hard to come by. This lack of access creates problems every day.
If we fail to support our print media through subscriptions and advertising, we have a great deal to lose as individuals, as a community and as a nation. The loss of local in-depth coverage sets the stage for my concern. Hopefully the following will explain my rationale.
It is easy to give thanks when things are going well. It is harder to do so when life has dealt us difficult, demanding and depressing situations. But just as a smooth sea never made a good sailor, the most genuine expressions of thankfulness are created in the crucible of adversity.
