Developing Leaders Through the Lessons Life Gives Us

Relevance VS Significance

There is more to life than drawing a paycheck, more to achieve than retirement.   When my time is up the words on my tombstone  will not be “He did his job adequately”. I will be significant.

What is Leadership?

A leader can extend his reach beyond his presence, can ensure achievement not through personal effort but through development of other leaders, those who can carry a vision forward without direct supervision. Leaders create other leaders.

Teaching Styles

To learn we have to be engaged. An effective educator can do more than just present information in an organized manner. An effective educator can establish the connection with every student that enables their engagement, their commitment to learning.

Working with Other Cultures

I learned Spanish at about the same time as English, raised in other cultures as a matter of routine. I have learned to see different cultures as an opportunity to learn new things, to see life through a prism different from my own. There is always something to learn from the world around us and exposure to other cultures grants some of the greatest learning opportunities.

I remembered getting ready for my first hurricane onboard – everybody knows I’m a newbie, and it seemed like...

Ten things about living on a boat

Boats are awesome. Living on one is downright groovy and I say that with confidence because I have a whole two months experience in doing so. Even so, there are a few things I wish I’d known before we moved onto the boat. We have lived in a lot of different houses, but houses are different. They are neutral; a house doesn’t care if you’re there or not. It simply is, and you live there with little interaction. A boat is almost a living thing. It’s like a cat,...

Moon over troubled waters

A couple nights ago we had been working all evening on the boat, stowing stuff away, trying to figure out which breaker had to be in which position so that switches on the walls actually worked, that sort of thing. Fun stuff for new boaters. After dinner I decided to take a shower. In the middle of getting into the shower I decided to check something in the engine room first. Translation: I went stark naked from one end of the boat to the other, hoping that no neighbors...
