    I recently read "Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln – 12 Powerful Secrets of History’s Greatest Speakers" by James Humes.  One chapter is titled Power Stats.

    I’m often unimpressed by news of rich people donating money.  It’s not the gesture I object to, it’s the big deal that is made of it.

    If Bill Gates were to pay the same percentage of his wealth to take his spouse to a movie that the average person does, it would cost him $19 million for the film tickets.

    Companies often only get a fraction of productivity from their employees.

    I can see that all the tables seat eight.  Well, consider that two of you at each table are going to to back to your office and work to correct the other six’s mistakes.

    What a powerful way to illustrate this idea!
