The general public, the media and especially members of the U.S. Government have been shocked at President Donald Trump’s propensity to use Twitter multiple times daily in order to make sure people understand how he is thinking. Putting aside whether you like what he is saying or not, it’s impressive how clearly his brief messages have been communicating the general direction that he wants to take the country.

Bob regularly writes blog posts and articles with his areas of focus being leadership, organizational effectiveness. Below you will find the titles and hot-links of his most recent efforts:
Fortune Magazine recently ran an article on the growing number of examples in Silicon Valley where entrepreneurs have taken a “fake it til you make it” approach to starting a business, only to have the whole thing blow up in embarrassment. Their primary example is Theranos, the blood testing company which, after rising a huge amount of start-up funding, tanked completely after it became known that its technology seldom actually worked. The entrepreneur behind it, who was very persuasive and successful in raising funds, has been banned from owning or operating a medical lab for two years and some investors are suing.
Back in September of 2015, the CEO of Volkswagen was forced to resign just days after the U.S. environmental authorities disclosed that the company had rigged diesel engines to cheat on emissions tests. The disclosure led to civil and criminal litigation against the company, which has pleaded guilty to federal charges including conspiracy to defraud the U.S. Government and U.S. consumers.
