Inflated or fake project´s ROIs (Return on Investment) can finally lead to inflated corporation´s ROCEs (Return on Capital Emloyed) and to the red ink bottom lines. Too many inflated corporation´s ROCEs finally can succesfully pin down to the touch pad the Adam Smith´s unvisibe hand by well known Quantitative Easing visible hand. Such devil race can usually bring well known market and monetary bubbles which historicaly represents a full manifestation of global financial crisis. Above mentioned two wisdoms or rather approaches, are famous quotes of two wise men. The “Festina Lente - Make haste slowly“ quoted by Octavianus Augustus, Roman Emperor and the „Time is Money“ quoted by Benjamin Franklin, US President. Two wisdoms seems to stay in oposition one to another. But are they really? And even more important question, what are their implications to the global financial crisis?

About 15 years ago I was a young soldier, serving in the Israeli navy. After spending a weekend at my grandparent’s house in the city of Nazareth, I was waiting at the bus station to travel back home to Tel Aviv. An old lady from a different community was sitting next to me and just like that, we started talking. Although we were neighbors, I knew very little about her culture and language. We talked for a few moments until the bus arrived. And right before I got on the bus, the old lady asked me to stay. “Let's talk a little longer,” she said, and I decided to stay and wait for the next bus, Later on that evening when I arrived home I watched the news and saw that the bus that I was supposed to go on had been bombed during a terrorist attack. That day I realized that the voices of peace are not being heard in our news, but they can be heard if we simply listen. You see, a small conversation between two women had the power to save our lives. While the world heard the news, they heard a story about those who died, I heard a story about those who are living. This experience paved my desire to seek out and share the untold stories. In my work, I am a communication skills trainer and storytelling coach. For the last 15 years, I have made it my mission to guide and inspire agents of change; managers and organizational leaders and help them to make better results.
