Leadership Lessons from A TSA Decoy

I’ve made countless pre-dawn trips to airports. My early morning quiet ride differed because I wasn’t intending to travel anywhere, or even drop off a passenger.

Live & Lead Vibrantly (Intro)

I stopped creating New Year's resolutions several years ago. Instead, a word captures an overarching theme or intention. For 2021, my word is "vibrant," as in living and leading vibrantly. While I still set goals, with objectives or milestones laid out by quarter or month, I also invest time to reflect how my planning and execution [...]
