The topic of this show is
Quantum Leadership. The universe is all a buzz about the possible discovery of Higgs bosons -- the stuff that gives particles mass.  This broad field of quantum mechanics teaches us all about matter and energy and how these things interact with each other.  It takes "hard" mathematics to really undestand these concepts.  This show will talk about "leadership math" and how concepts of probability, infinity, and discontinuity help us approach our greatest leadership

Voice of Your Muse - June Survey Results
Thanks to those of you who took the time to fill out the Desert Experiences survey.  Sharing the Muse in you enhances your life as well as the lives of others. Here's a summary of what you said.
The number one grand challenge you shared was that of raising your children.  The unanimous fear was fear of failure.  Most people got a lot of inspiration from their supervisors.  But, a divine connection was sited most often.  Finally, the respondents cited faith and prayer as what sustains them through difficult times.  
Thanks again for taking the survey and I hope one of you got that gift certificate! Don't forget to participate in the July survey.
Please forward to your colleagues who may be interested in personal and organizational leadership issues.  I welcome your feedback at  Did you miss some issues of this newsletter?  Check them out here.
