    Wow great lessons learmt, what stood out for me is how John differentiated information from communication, I think I’m more of the information guy, pass the information and make sure everyone hears it, now I know better, I would apply the principles John read out, by doing this I know it would leave an impact on the soul of my team, making us see every goal as a possibility. Thank you
