Leadership: An Extraordinary Lesson from George H.W. Bush


Leadership: An Extraordinary Lesson from President George H.W. Bush

The last five days have provided a rich lesson on leadership. Almost immediately after the passing of George H.W. Bush on Friday, November 30, I started noticing the words being used by people who knew him best to describe him. So I started jotting them down.
