    Summary: A complete pleasure and total learning opportunity. The time Ambassador Ray took to first educate, then teach me on the best ways to build trust and unity among parties who historically dislike or distrust each other are what make me a success today. I will cherish his mentorship throughout the remainder of my professional career and for the rest of my life.
  • Photo_user_blank_big
    Summary: Working with Charles Ray has been an extremely rewarding experience. I have learned more about leadership and managment from him than any other leader in my career. This has been my best assignment in the military primarily because I had the honor to work for Ambassador Ray.

    Summary: ABM Charles Ray is the best Leader I have worked ever for!
  • Photo_user_blank_big
    Summary: I enjoyed Ambassador Ray's ability to set the tone and vision of the Embassy. I enjoyed even more his rare ability to then let us do our jobs while still staying in touch with us. He knew who we were and what we were doing without micromanaging us.

    Hello to everyone. I haven't been on in a long time because I've been busy at the new job in Zimbabwe - an interesting and sometimes exciting place - and working on my latest books. I'm not up to my tenth, including a book of essays that the embassy distributes free to schools here, and which is on the State Department web site for worldwide use. Check out my new blog site at http://charlesaray.blogspot.com

    I'll have to check out your books. I enjoy reading your various points of view. How long have you been working on your new book? Yes, I am busy on Facebook. I like the games, especially now that I have a new computer, it makes it easier. Hope to hear from you soon!

    I'm glad that you finished your book. What did you name it? So, your game is so-so? How are you doing otherwise?

    Good morning, my friend! How are you? How's your golf game? Have you had a chance to go out and practice? How is your book coming along? I know you are working hard, so I thought to ask.

    Happy New Year to all my friends, and friends to be. May 2010 be far better than 2009.

    Thanks for accepting the invite.
    What's the key to building consensus when there is distrust among the ranks? Do you think that an unpopular leader can be effective?

    I'm usually on until midnight! It's been busy lately with going to my step-sister's wedding in NJ! The flight going up was delayed, but it was great to be there and see everyone again! How did your speech go? You get another chance to practice your golf game again! That is great! I'm so glad that you do what you do! I guess there is a little pride there! I'm glad that you help so many people!
