Kevin McCarthy, the presumptive successor to John Boehner as the Majority Speaker in the US House of Representatives, got himself into a bit of hot water last week with comments he made about the Benghazi hearings.

I had a week full of great conversations. Discovery chat with Erhard Ruettimann, a personal break-through specialist from Zuerich. Stream-of-consciousness banter with better-workplaces-champion Bill Jensen, author of the new book Future Strong. Mentorship talk with Rich BonGiovanni, gifted leadership trainer who is launching his own training firm. New business opportunities brainstorm with entrepreneur Faisal Hoque over Thai food in a strip mall in Orlando. Sipping coffee at a Starbucks with fellow C-Suite coach Scott Livingston, sharing coaching wisdom.
All very cool people.
