What Your Boss Can Learn From Bruce Springsteen

Last weekend I was on a road trip with my son. We went to Virginia Beach to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. This was somewhere around my eleventy-seventh Bruce show since the 1980’s; it was my son’s first. This trip was something we’ve talked about for a long time. One of the […]
