    I have been reading the monthly Leadership Tips since November 2001 and the emergence of the new site [weLEAD In Learning] provides so much great information. I equate it to spending quality time with some of the greatest minds in Business/Leadership circles. There is clearly something for everyone.

    Thanks so much!"
