On this day in leadership history in 1961, The Mercury-Atlas 5 spacecraft was launched by the U.S. with Enos the chimp on board. The craft orbited the earth twice before landing off Puerto Rico.
What’s the leadership lesson? Find the courage as a leader to do the thing that you’ve been putting off—lean into the pain of your fear to do know what you know is right. Don’t let a chimp up-stage you!
