Author, columnist, and blogger with a long career in business management, management consulting and executive coaching. I've authored and published seven books: "You, Your Self and the 21st Century,"The Flowers Are Talking to Me," and "Faith Stirred Not Shaken," Christianity in America,"The Martian Prelude," Faith Stirred not Shaken, 2nd edition," "On Coaching with The Birkman Method." I try to keep this in mind when I write: Sometime back I was watching an old movie titled Biloxi Blues. At one point a young man named Epstein, warns the protagonist, a fledgling writer, played by a very young Matthew Broderick, "when you compromise your true opinions you commit yourself to mediocrity."
