Interview with Chef Todd Mohr Founder of www.WebCookingClasses.com

Mike Carruthers:
Cooking on the grill outside is in many ways harder than cooking the kitchen. For one thing food tends to stick to the grill.

 

Chef Todd Mohr:
People complain to me about that all of the time. How do I get things to stop sticking? Well that’s one of the most important things is to #1 get that grill very hot to begin with.

Interview with Sylvia Ann Hewlett, author of the book Executive Presence: The Missing Link Between Merit and Success

Mike Carruthers:
To acquire executive presence you need confidence, poise and great communication skills. But what’s often left out of the equation is the right appearance.

 

Sylvia Ann Hewlett:
And you know appearance is fascinating because leaders talk out of both sides of their mouth. They say look we don’t really think appearance is that important in the long run it’s like 10% of the equation.

Interview with Cormac O’Brien, author of the book Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents

 

________________

 

Mike Carruthers:
We’ve had 44 United States Presidents and some of them have been a little bit quirky.

 

Cormac O'Brien:
One of my favorites is the story of James Monroe. He got into an argument with his own Secretary of the Treasury, a fellow named Crawford. It got so bad that Crawford started threatening violence and the President had to chase the guy out of the White House with a hot fire tongs.
