Some of the greatest thoughts on leadership have come from some of the most amazing people in my life.
Our oldest son, Rob, once said, “When we don’t understand the LESSON at the right time, life makes us understand the same LESSONS at the wrong time.”
The thought holds such merit when it comes to leadership. When we do not understand the lesson at the right time, we find ourselves dealing with them at the wrong time.
To be sure, the lesson here is to pay attention and learn it right the first time around. When we do, our leadership influence grows.
