Bill George, Harvard Business School professor and author of "Finding Your True North," gives advice to both new and experienced leaders.
They've been called the most successful husband and wife comedy team in history, and you'll find no dissension in these ranks. George Burns and Gracie Allen had a chemistry and wit about them that had no parallel. In this sampling of programs from the 1940s, George and Gracie face new livelihoods (and livestock) and mad undertakings (and misunderstandings). They budget and blunder alongside Bill Goodwin, Meredith Willson, Mel Blanc, and special guest Jack Benny.
The Great Presidential Debates features five pivotal debates in the race for the White House: John F. Kennedy versus Richard Nixon in 1960, Jimmy Carter versus Ronald Reagan in 1980, Bill Clinton versus George H. W. Bush versus Ross Perot in 1992, George W. Bush versus Al Gore in 2000, and Barack Obama versus Mitt Romney in 2012.
From the grand old man of comedy, George Burns to the up-to-the minute observations of today's everyman, Dave Barry, these great humorists share one thing in common: their very individual, often raucously funny perception of the world around them. Laugh and enjoy!
"Sorry Dave. You have overdone boogers."
One of the country's most trusted leaders offers time-tested and real world advice for leading in economic hard times. From business giant Bill George, the acclaimed author of Wall Street Journal best seller True North, comes the just-in-time guide for anyone in a leadership position facing today's unprecedented economic challenges.
In the spring of 1947, Gracie turned her eye toward things that are fresh and new: a new hat, a new hemline, and a new home. The real estate wrangling of Beverly Hills most brilliantly befuddled wife finds the Burnses bunking with various members of the cast, occupying a janitor's apartment, and even living seperately at the YMCA/YWCA. All's well that ends well...but, until then it's hilarious!
