After the seminar I found myself almost unconsciously planning time blocks for getting projects done, calling time outs for my team to get focused and thinking several moves in advance, which is something I had not been successful at before. Now it seems natural. I will never forget the lessons of consulting "The Old Tribal Chief". Our society has many "tribal chiefs" if we just open ourselves up to consulting them." ~ Brian Hepp, Director, Quve, LLC
