Stewardship & Leading by Example

In a world weary of embezzling, self-indulgent executives and conniving CEOs, it's gratifying to read accounts of corporate leaders who live and breathe the principles of service and stewardship.

As we sat there, buckling our seat belts and checking out the televisions in front of us, a middle-aged man with slightly graying hair stood up in the front of the plane. He had on the long apron that JetBlue flight attendants wear, with his name stitched into it. "Hi," he said, "my name is Dave Neeleman, and I'm the CEO of JetBlue. I'm here to serve you this evening, and I'm looking forward to meeting each of you before we land."

Would that more of our corporate and political leaders do likewise.

Back to work ... essays (and photos from last night's St. Paddy's Day mixer) will be posted soon, hopefully.
