“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
Make It a Safe Trip
For terrorists and other criminals, there must be few targets more inviting than high-net-worth individuals who fly privately. Which countries are safe? "None," according to Edward L. Lee II, author of Staying Safe Abroad: Traveling, Working and Living in a Post-9/11 World. Lee knows what he's talking about, having spent 30 years with the U.S. State Department, where he served as a regional security officer in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East and helped develop post-9/11 anti-terrorism strategies.
His 325-page book is an easy-to-carry 4½-by-6½-inch collection of everything you need to know about traveling safely, from threat assessment to eye-opening statistics. The volume is available from online booksellers such as Barnes and Noble and Amazon.
