Lessons from a “Grandfather”

Earlier I wrote about heading up to Annapolis to watch a Naval Academy football game.  While I was there, I spent a few minutes touring the stadium which has recently been renovated.  As someone who has a passion history – especially military history – I always enjoy wandering around the facility and looking at its various tributes to the US Navy and Marine Corps.

In my wanderings I just happened to overhear a conversation between two young college students (from the visiting team) and a soft-spoken, “grandfatherly” gentleman.  In a brief 30-second conversation he gave them a significant lesson, and reminded me of a very basic tenet of leadership.  (4:39)

WOW. What a great story! Thank you so much for sharing it. And I agree the wisdom and leadership lesson shared by the “grandfather” is a priceless reminder to anyone; myself included. He is a leader.

Thanks Wiz.
