"Fearless HR" is really a business book for HR professionals.  From my early years in the training business, I have always been working with companies to improve business performance.  And when I became President of Spectrum Interactive, I had the same orientation--how to leverage talent and improve processes.  Strategic HR and driving business results came naturally to me.

One of the truly unique experiences in my life was developing training for the release of the Macintosh in 1984.  It is a long time ago now, but I still remember meetings with all the key figures; and the product still amazes three decades later."
