Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.

If we study learning as a data science, we can reverse engineer the human brain and tailor learning techniques to maximize the chances of student success.

I vividly remember a conversation I had many years ago in 1974, which marked a turning point in my leadership journey.

John C. Maxwell
