Things That Matter 2.0 is an extension of the series we launched last year. Go to Upcoming Episodes to see what's coming. The series is intended to highlight characteristics of good leadership, amplifying themes featured in advisory work on government relations, law, and human rights and in my book On! Achieving Excellence in Leadership.
The goals are to provide good, practical, sometimes thought-provoking value to followers on various platforms. This is my way of making a contribution to improving leadership in our community and country.“Things That Matter” began in January 2021, when John Weston and others sought to build on his non-partisan observations on leadership published in his book, On! Achieving Excellence in Leadership. The format was to invite well-informed, provocative speakers on the show, moderated by Mr. Weston.
