Dear Donald Trump Supporters…

I know that this entire political arena has become vitriolic, full of hatred and name-calling, insults flying to and fro. Well, to start off, I am not going to insult you or call you stupid. I know many Trump supporters. While there may be a rough profile of a Trump supporter, I know many who come from every nook and cranny of US society. Smart people. Successful people. Great parents to their children. Loving brothers and sisters. God-fearing, good people. You can’t ever paint an entire group of people with the same brush. I know if you are reading this, you have your reasons for supporting Donald Trump.

Harambe the Gorilla & Other Situations that Require Perfection

MANILA, Philippines – One story that has featured prominently in recent weeks is the case of my hometown zoo in Cincinnati and the shooting of a rare silverback gorilla named Harambe in order to save the life of a three-year-old child, who somehow wandered into the gorilla enclosure. Public opinion is coming down on one side or the other. Some people are on the side of Harambe, and blame the parents for lack of proper supervision of their child. They are signing online petitions for “justice for Harambe” and mourning the death of this majestic creature.

Beware of the ‘Consultant’

dear friend of mine who owns and runs a large family business in consumer goods hired a so-called “expert consultant” a few years ago to help HR redesign the company structure for future growth. The consultant they found spouted lots of stories about projects he had worked on, and really sold himself as an international guru on organizational design.
