On This Day in Leadership History for June 19, 2016

We’re celebrating fathers today! On this day in leadership history in 1910, the first Father’s Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington, at the YMCA by Sonora Smart Dodd, who was born in Arkansas. Her father, the civil war veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who raised his six children there.

What’s the leadership lesson? Fatherhood is one of the most remarkably powerful ways to influence those around you. We honor you and say thank you!
