Did you know that for the first time ever, a majority of Americans (51%) today are single? Today, young people are texting instead of talking, sexting instead of playing spin the bottle, surfing internet porn instead of sneaking peeks at Playboy magazines.
Ion was invaluable in deftly guiding us in the "reinvention" of our foundation. The foundation leadership was so impressed with Ion’s performance and professionalism that he was then asked to join the Board of Directors, where his communication, organizational and analytical skills combined with world-class experience continue to make an outstanding contribution.
Ion has managed to capture, in a succinct and universally applicable framework, how we can learn from and master our own mistakes. His simple yet effective checklist will help you to use your mistakes - big or small - to grow and improve in a conscious and deliberate way.
Whether you're the head of a Fortune 500 company or the head of your family, the lessons in Ion's book will help you make the most of your miscues and transform them into magnificent mistakes.
