Here’s the view from my phone in Dubailand. It’s truly an amazing place.

I was there for the first time this past weekend teaching a leadership program through Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. A friend was teaching a course on how to have difficult conversations, and I was teaching a course on leadership behavior and how to lead effectively.

Probably the most interesting thing about Dubai is that they’re having financial difficulties, too. Only the biggest difference between Dubai and the US right now, is that Dubai is asking for help. They’re asking teachers to help them.

So we’ll see what happens.

Now that I’m home again, I’m not too sure what to make all of it yet. I can’t really make any conclusions, just “Wow.”
