  1. Jeff, what a great post and thought provoking reminder. I would add one thought. Having a reputation is often a prediction of what someone or organization may do. As a leader, often a reminder of expectations because you have a reputation. Also interesting is what WolfRamAlpha shows about the declining use of the word reputation since the 1800s, has it become less important?*C.reputation-_*Word-

  2. David, thanks for your note. Agree it can be a predictor. This is both an opportunity and a challenge.

    If we lead with action, we will most likely do that.
