       Dr. Carl Couch, of the Baylor Healthcare System, recently enrolled in our Winter 2016 Fellows Program, which starts with a 2-day Launch Event.

       By Lim Kim Pong, Halftime Coach and Founder/CEO of StrengthsAsia My first encounter with Curt Lisveld was in a classroom on the Gallup Campus.  Curt is the guy that taught me everything I know about strengths.  He made it real for me.

By Bob and Susan Karcher, Authors, Who Are the Joneses Anyway? “It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.” Ephesians 1:11 (MSG) At one time or another, most of us have used the expression “keeping up with the Joneses.” We’re talking about a legendary family that has the world trying to keep up with them.

The Silver Lining of An Economic Downturn

By Lloyd Reeb If you’re beginning to seriously think about your second half of life, and the markets drop like they’ve done recently, it can cause even the bravest soul to stop and think. What if this is the beginning of a long period of low or negative growth? Maybe I should just sit tight and wait out this volatility until I can see some economic blue sky ahead.
