In the Company of Heroes: Life-Shaping People, Life-Changing Moments [NOOK Book]

Overview

If you were lucky, mentors showed up to guide you through life's challenging times. You owe your heroes and need to pass their favors along to others. You're invited to meet 15 exceptional people who shaped my life. Most are no longer with us, so this book is part of my pay-back. I hope it will prompt you to remember the heroes in your life, and to keep those gifts alive by sharing them.

Meet the Author

Semi-retired consultant, active college instructor, author (6 books for HRD Press in 2007-8), regular contributor to the Cincom "ExpertAccess" business e-zine. I hold one of the early doctorates in Human Resource Development, lectured extensively on project management on an international circuit, worked with clients to install systems, and was heavily involved in civil rights, supervisory, and management training. Came to Lithuania in 1998 as a volunteer, and never left. I live in Vilnius in a former monastery, heat with wood (by choice), and love cooking for friends. Living in Europe is special everyday!

    OK

    Here's the thing, at one point in my life I felt if I started a book I had to finish it no matter how bad it was at holding my attention. Well, I'm too old for that philosophy now, not enough time left.....I gave it 20 pages.......that was enough.
