I continue to use the advice and wisdom you imparted to us in the early days of forestry on a nearly daily (and sometimes hourly!) basis. At my youngest daughter’s parent teacher conference two weeks ago the teacher asked [our daughter] what things she wanted to work on for the next semester, and she began with “well, I want to avoid saying negative things, and when I want to say something like that I want to state it as a positive… my dad does that.” [She] just turned 12, so we are trying to share your wisdom.
I thought Jim’s session on litigation was superb. It was I who called it the “fastest 90 minutes in workshop history” in my evaluation. Thanks for the insights. I haven’t stopped quoting Jim since I got back to work on Wednesday.
I understand the brigadier generals orientation is going to take place this month. I hope you are an important part of that week. I remain firmly convinced that our general officers must be well grounded and well informed about dealing with the media… What you have been teaching is on track, and I hope you will have sufficient time in order to convey what they need to know about dealing with the media. Overall, I think we had pretty good success in getting the Marine Corps story told. It was not without its share of lessons learned however, and I look forward to discussing them with you so those things can be incorporated into our discussions with the general officers.
Periodically, something from you comes across my desk. Today, it was an Executive Action piece on crisis prevention. I have always admired your clear thinking and the quality of the materials you send out. It’s good information and also a useful marketing model.
…our heartfelt thanks for all you have done to meet what is certainly the biggest challenge we’ve faced in our business lives. We will keep you posted as our saga plays out; we are deeply appreciative for your wise counsel and unflagging energy.
I appreciate the time you took to contribute to the professional development of [our agency’s department of] Public Affairs and to inform us about advising and counseling the boss. Your comments really resonated with our group and were exactly what I wanted them to hear the first day of our symposium. Many in the audience are responsible for providing honest and truthful counsel to their bosses on a daily basis. You gave me and my team a better understanding as we work to become trusted advisors to our senior leaders.
Again, a huge thanks for joining us.
