Changing Times, Leaders & Laggards: August At C-Level
Times, they are a'changin'...

Texas has finally busted a 5-year drought. Heinz is buying Kraft... Halliburton buys Baker Hughes. Trump is leading the pack. Blackberry is barely holding on. Oil prices $100+ this time last year, today $50. Then, there's Bruce Caitlyn Jenner. Oops, too far, my bad.

Along that theme, we've been making some changes here at Triangle Performance. This newsletter is new, for example. We try to make these things informative and valuable enough to read. We welcome your comments on both design and content.
  • Our website redesign is finally done:

  • Finally, our 2015 Survey of Senior Leadership is complete, and results are in-see below for details
  • Tell us what you think. About our content... about our new layouts... about life and leadership in general. We want to hear from you.
