Monday’s blog will continue insight from Jim Collins “Great by Choice.” One of my clients and partner provider wrote a blog that provides insight into the current economy that I thought my readers would find interesting. Read his short blog Ray Dalio says this is no recession.
Dalio runs the biggest hedge fun and has received a better return on his investments than Warren Buffet. You can read more on Dalio in this Wall Street Journal article Ray Dalio Down on Europe, High on Fed. If you read it I’d be interested in your perspective on his views on the economy.

Last blog we discussed the importance of meetings fitting together. Your meetings should cascade or telescope from the first meeting of the year which should be your annual planning meeting. This should be about 2 – 3 days depending upon what you need to discuss, how complex the challenges are that the organizations faces, and when you last did a proper planning and strategy session.
