The Latest Recommendation from Lee’s Bookshelf – “Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters”

Sully Sullenberger The Latest Recommendation from Lee’s Bookshelf is Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters by Chesley B. Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow. Even though this book was published several years ago, it has some great nuggets of wisdom from Sully Sullenberger.

In it, he reveals the important lessons that he learned through childhood, in his military service, and in his work as a commercial airline pilot. At heart, it is a story of hope and preparedness–that life′s challenges can be met if we′re ready for them. It’s also a great reminder that, even in these days filled with war, tragedy, and economic uncertainty, there are values still worth fighting for.

Many times, the best lessons learned are from those who are willing to share their experiences!

On This Day in Leadership History, February 22, 2015

Tennesseee Constitution

On this day in 1865, the state of Tennessee adopted a new constitution that abolished slavery. As we still witness the ups and downs of race relations in our nation today, imagine the strong leadership that it took to abolish the act of slavery while still in the last months of the Civil War.

Growing as a leader takes the willingness to accept new paradigms and ways of thinking. Where do you need to be more objective and grow as a leader? Choose to lead with this attitude in your family, team, or community!
