1993 was 19 years ago. Like any year there were many events that are memorable. Some even changed the course of the future. Here is a short list in no particular order . . .
Israel and PLO Sign Peace Accord – PLO leader Yasir Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin shook hands in Washington D.C., September 13, 1993, after 45 years of fighting.
Czechoslovakia splits – The Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic were formed in the split.

The company now known as The Kevin Eikenberry Group is founded – September 30, 1993, Kevin Eikenberry ended his successful career for the Chevron Corporation and started helping individuals, teams and organizations reach their goals through learning. Over the years, the work has become more and more focused on the roles, challenges and skills of effective leaders.
All of these things seem like a long time ago to me, except the last one.
