  • Hi Erin
    What a sad note.
    What a great guy.
    I have read and re-read ‘Leading Teams’ to the point that the cover is falling off.

    Can you give me some information for a blog post I am writing?
    I know that J Richard Hackman played an instrument in an ensemble because I recall an illustration he used.
    However I can’t find it and would like to mention the instrument.

    I love the story Teresa Amabile tells of how JRH lifted her up to see the flowers.
    He must have been such a nice man.

    All the best
