Getting to Know You

Looking in all the wrong places

Feb 26 2018

In light of the Florida shooting, we look for leadership issues in the most unlikely places. We're not talking gun control or advocacy, but we are talking about talking: get to know your employees, your bosses, your co-workers, your neighbors, and on and on. Taking the time to get to know someone you interact with can make all the difference in the world.

So, here's our dilemma: We are certainly pro-gun, pro-life, and pro-awesome (and that is 'professional' awesome, bee tee dubs), but we also recognize there is a problem with guns in this country. In light of the recent shooting in Florida, we discuss the systemic issue that surrounds these types of incidents and the potential causes that lead up to them. We believe that while some of the tragic incidents would have happened regardless of gun control (i.e. 9/11, OKC, etc.), we also believe we cannot look to our politicans and law-makers as our saviors to this current state of affairs. As we have been talking, this is a systemic problem. That means we all have a role to play. To quote a recent guest, 'the responsibility lies with each and every one of us.' Parents, coaches, teachers, pastors, state officials, all the way up to the POTUS have a part to play. We all have responsibility and we dig into this for today's episode. We are going to try and keep it focused on leadership examples and principles, but hey, we're human, we veer from time to time. Be sure to let us know what you're thinking.
