About

The Afterwords blog reflects on applications to corporate life I’ve harvested from non-fiction books.  These aren’t the business books being read by most executives, but stories about historical events.  Granted, these books aren’t where most business leaders are going for new insights, but I’ve found they are a rich source.  By pulling these insights out of fascinating stories and episodes in history, they seem to have more staying power.  At least they make for interesting telling.  I’ve found that history offers lessons that help us see the whole forest where others see only trees.  Learn more about me from my LinkedIn profile.

The photo header for my blog is a picture I took in July 2010 while hiking on the Colorado Trail where it passes Twin Lakes, Colorado.  In the background is Mt. Elbert, the tallest peak in Colorado.  This hike led to Interlaken, an abandoned resort on the shores of Twin Lakes.  Here’s a photo I took of the old resort.  It was a beautiful day and definitely worth the hike if you’re ever in the area.
