Why subscribe to Timeless & Timely?

The past enlightens the present.

Maybe you’d like to become a better communicator, a better leader, and a better human in 2021. And maybe you appreciate thoughtful writing that will make you think differently.

Traditional leadership, strategy, and communications pieces can seem formulaic or prescriptive. As if a list will help you out of your jam.

But one thing we all love? Stories.

Leaders abound in literature and history, and their stories (for what is history, but a set of stories?) can serve as lessons and guideposts today in communication, leadership, and integrity, leading to better relationships.

Each week in Timeless & Timely, Scott Monty provides advice and counsel of the past as a guide to understanding and acting on the issues and ideas before us today.

Tell Me Some Stories


“Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.” — Samuel Johnson, 1775


Who is Scott Monty?

I’m a former Classics major who went on to get an M.B.A. and eventually became the first executive at Ford Motor Company to lead digital communications and social media globally. During that time, I was exposed to all parts of the business and to leaders across the world in various industries.

Along the way, I realized there are fundamental behaviors we share and that leaders are everywhere around us, with lessons ready for us — if we’re ready for them.

But this isn’t just stories from the past; it’s about applying what we already know to what’s going on in the world around us today.
