    I stopped by to visit. You just followed me on twitter. I visit the twitter page and website of all the people that follow me in the hope that we share some passions. Three of my favorite websites are Harvard, Wharton and MIT. I frequently comment on HBS. I love Goldsmith on leadership and Sarah Green’s weekly case study.

    I love your website. Great, thought provoking content. You really have a lot to be proud of. I’m fortunate that you’re going to share it with me.

    I’m going to take you up on your kind offer. How about a post on collaboration from another point of view. Collaboration is the buzzword in business, today. When is there too much collaboration?

    Now that’s an interesting question! I’m going to look into it now . . .
