Hi Everyone. Robert Whiteside here.

I read a nice quote today by Mr. Fred Rogers (the Mr. Rogers we remember from PBS).

He said:  “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’”
What a nice quote, and one which reminds us that, regardless how dark some days may be for us and others, there are almost always helpers. And of course, we can be helpers for others anytime we choose. Indeed, there are innumerable opportunities to help, with every step we take.

This is one of the very big things I like about the Verbal Defense & Influence (VDI) program. Every single aspect of it conveys an exemplary service ethos. VDI is a discipline which, in the hands of those who seek to help, can transform individuals, families, workplaces, and societies.
