Wandering Into Wisdom

This blog chronicles the knowledge, insight and wisdom I encounter every day as a leadership consultant, executive coach, educator, father, friend and citizen. This site is dedicated to my father, Louis (Jack) Laughlin, who passed on to me an appreciation for wisdom. A special thanks to my friend Isaac Cheifetz, a businessman and journalist, who helped me understand the value of blogs and encouraged me to write one.

Clear and Simple*

I know someone who was invited to watch a Space Shuttle crew in the simulator. He tells about an interaction that demonstrated how clearly and simply people can communicate to manage a situation.

Captain – Do you see the problem?
Pilot – Yes
Captain – Do you have a plan?
Pilot – Yes
Captain – Are you ahead or behind?
Pilot - Ahead
