L&D/PI: Thankful for My Many Mentors

In the USA – This Is a Day of Thanks

I’m especially Thankful for the support of my many mentors over the decades – and especially to the late Geary Rummler, the late Ray Svenson, and Neil Rackham – and these 39 other people – that I have tried to acknowledge in my past series of Blog Posts entitled: My First Friday Favorite Guru Series (2012-2015):

Note: Some did protest after my posts that they were not Gurus. I replied that Gurus are in the eyes and perceptions of the beholder. Me. IMO.

Perhaps you share some of these with me. I know many of them influenced hundreds and thousands in their career development.

To All – Thank You!
