On Leadership

One Very Vivid Memory That I have is of a Duplex Apartment Fire in the Heat of July.
That Day a Small Woman in Stature was in High Demand, of the Many Tasks I had That day, I recall Being Lifted through a Window, Crawling in a Small Space, Extinguishing the Fire, Pulling the Ceiling and Overhauling.
Those were the Days that Prepared me, the Experience I Needed to Successfully Lead an Organization.

I am  drawn to Rupi Kaur's work.

She throws out the rule book of poetry writing and she is HERSELF.

She is AUTHENTIC.

She is REAL.

She HURTS. She LOVES. She is LIKABLE.

Do don't have to be an award winning poet, but you have to be authentic.
