Reporters are among the first at any crime. What it the reporter was the criminal? Washington Post reporter Ryan Caulder's assignment in Rwanda to follow a trail of government sponsored human trafficking goes horribly wrong when he upsets the wrong people and gets thrown in jail. After weeks of torture and abuse, he returns to Washington DC a shattered man. With a new job, new girlfriend and new control over his life, he is once again blind sided when the general who ordered his incarceration in Rwanda comes to Washington.

On-going coaching and development that can be a “game changer” for all employees! All great coaches know how to ask good open-ended questions and how to give effective feedback. They keep a balanced and honest perspective that separates the person from the problem or issue; coaching to leverage their unique strengths and helping them improve weaknesses with a mindset focused on continuous improvement. This ongoing coaching and development can be a “game changer” for all people and teams with access to it. But what about the teams and players that aren’t empowered—or even allowed—to expand their roles?
