Personal Leadership Blog

From personal experiences and forward thinking, my blog shares insight on what it takes to be a great leader in all areas of your life.

Dinner of Truth

Key Point: Becoming more self-aware is just plain hard. I’m reading Tasha Eurich’s great book “Insight”, which is a comprehensive tour on the subject. It’s an important read. The painful truth is that we all have blind spots and yet most people around us are reluctant to share insights or feedback that might be perceived […]

Disrupted Assumptions

Key Point: What if most assumptions that we currently make about the world were disrupted? Well, that was the most profound impact to me personally after ruminating over the Singularity Summit I attended in Toronto last week. Yes, the exponential technology introduced at the conference included much of what I’ve written about in previous blogs, […]

However, TEAMING versus great teamwork is both subtly yet profoundly different. This coming week, I am privileged to have […]

Key Point: “9 to 5 is for the weak.” That is the slogan on a popular t-shirt.

It’s duly noted that some people like “Crush It” guru, Gary Vaynerchuk, tells his […]

We took a little break and at the same time recognized it was necessary to refresh the “old” Lornerubis.com website. We had to take the site down, which made our time away a little longer than we planned. […]
