Dear Messrs Auzenne and  Horstman et al:
As the year comes to a close I just want to tell you how much I appreciate the podcasts you produce. 
I must admit I was skeptical when I came across your site, but quickly realized your philosophies were very similar to mine. It was encouraging to see I had been doing a fair amount “right;” but of course I can always get better. To wit:  I find that your ‘Casts help to crystallize the actual actions I can take to make me and my team better. In 2010, my 1:1’s were better and more focused, I am now providing  better feedback to impact future behavior and  more of the right stuff is getting done. I think I’ve had a heck of a  year at work and I owe a significant amount to your shows and methods. Thank you.
Best Wishes for a Healthy and Prosperous New Year to you and your team!
