Mentoring Bold Leaders

"Reward spectacular failure; punish mediocre success." This traditional leadership-development maxim has long been attributed to Ramses II, but it was probably adapted from a folk saying by the Greek-Christian redactors and curators of the great Alexandrian library sometime around the middle of the third century.

Dr. Grant, I watched videos of your lectures for five and a half years and enjoyed every minute of it. Every minute of the lectures, that is. Taking the "Opportunities" is another story...
I am delighted to find your blog. I miss your random rants and musings. Your post on Alfred the Great brought back fond memories of hearing you say "It was on this day..." twice a week for a year.
You gave me a love for history and for learning. Thank you.
