2/28/20 - Benavidez Demonstrates Levels of Humanity

I’m not sure who needs to watch this, but there are levels to the human will. This man is made of the same things you are. He has inside of him wonderful traits and less-than-admirable ones just the same as you do. Mr. Benavidez developed the parts of him that would later earn him one of the most remarkable Medal of Honor citations in US Military history. 

I watch his speech at least once a year for a bit of perspective and I hope you like it. Keep going.

I remember reading the MLB Scouting Report for a teammate of mine in high school, DJ Lewis. He was a man amongst children. He came from a passionate, loving, and strict Jamaican family.

We’ve talked about other leadership paradoxes, including but not limited to the notion that leaders are responsible for outcomes they can never have perfect control over. This paradox is just as troubling, but in a different way.Let me first say, the reason leadership is such a common topic here is because we need it and ...
