road

Most boys are scared.  It must be something they are born with.  Some are afraid of the dark, afraid of the first day of school, afraid to fight, afraid to dance, afraid to ask a girl out, afraid to make a tough decision, or afraid to fail.  They end up spending a lot of energy “hiding,” hoping nobody will catch on.  Sadly for men, some things never change.

Click.

Click.

Click.

A dead battery. Nothing can be more frustrating than jumping into your car five minutes late for work with your breakfast bar and hot java in hand, only to hear click, click, click. Then begins the ever-elusive search for a neighbor with jumper cables. Continue Reading…

David-goliath28
Stan Ward is one of the most engaging teachers on leadership I know. He’s engaging because he uses stories. I’m excited to have him guest post for you. – Kevin

Here’s a new leadership lesson from an old story. What can leaders learn from the story of David and Goliath? No, I’m not suggesting a “defeating the giants” pep talk.
