Letters / August 2006


Hi Russ.

I have just read your web site and recent interview with the authors of Leadership Agility. A Conversation with Bill Joiner and Steve Joseph. I really enjoyed it and kept wondering of course if I had attained their ultimate level of leadership Agility…(It’s now 5am here in Sydney and my birthday June 8-turn 55 today…I guess i will have to wait until Oct and find out!).

Letters to Integral Leadership Review

Letters / September 2005

Greetings Russ,

…I was a student of Joe Rost (1995-97) at USD. Joe just forwarded to me a link to your interview with him…it was great! Congrats!…

Letters / September 2002


I just wanted to thank you for the great work you’re doing with your newsletter. The time is right for a new approach to leadership, and many of us are sensing the greater possibilities while we experiment with new approaches.

Your newsletter brings together the big ideas with a practical …


Letters / January 2002

Thanks for your consistent sharing of your e-journal! I appreciate it!!

Russ, you might consider doing an article on why diversity is good business. The reality is that diversity does effect the bottom line. I personally go to businesses that represent the values that I hold, when I have a choice.
