Here’s a poem Seamus wrote:
Have you labored through 2018,
And found it went all too vapid and fast?
Have you made a resolution or two,
And found them waft all away like dust?
Have you ran past myriad hurdles,
And found your chinked armor thickening?
Have you slayed many demons,
And found your success ever more blazing?
Have you slowed down now and then,
And found yourself and many whom you love?
Have you stood firm and dug your heels,
And found friends and even foes lifted you above?
Have you wondered of the year ahead,
And found countless doubts and questions?
Have you wondered what you hope for,
And found blessings like gold that glistens?
So it is our wishes for you my friend,
That past battles be stripes on your shoulder,
And on all the roads and valleys you travel,
Be the wisdom and peace your life find anchor.
A blessed New Year ahead!

One of the hallmarks of leadership is to have immersive experiences that you can relate to personally, and then nuancing them to help develop your own people working with you. However, short of being hands-on on every single task, what are some of the options for gaining such experiences, especially for an emerging leader, a leader in training, or even a leader already entrenched in the field but placed in even more challenging environments?
Why should leaders start looking beyond new Western management thought and the singular and often quoted Art of War? Can leaders learn from mission-critical professionals like airline pilots in managing people and businesses better? A recent radio interview presented us the opportunity to share our thoughts.
