Tipping into the light 
Jennifer has been traveling the pathways of her ancestors who courageously embarked on journeys across the ocean and into the unknown.

Learning from the World Cup 
World cup fever has Zafer in its grip. The strategy of the players is not really far from the strategy of all of us in our lives: Do we play to win? Or do we play so that we don't lose? How can you learn about yourself and your leadership from thinking about the Beautiful Game?
