Remembering Our Values
Our election in the U.S. showed an evenly divided country. My friends are blue and red. Some workplaces probably have been unpleasant due to differing attitudes about the candidates for President. It is time for healing. I thought James Corden on the Late, Late Show rose to the occasion, "Now is the time to remember our values."
The Chicago Cubs won the World Series of baseball. I watched Game 7, the network discussions afterwards, and Mike & Mike on ESPN2. I have read online news articles. One of my favorites was Jeff Passan’s “How Theo Epstein broke another curse and built the World Series champion Cubs.”
I am not a baseball aficionado but I understand factors that usually lead to individual and organizational success. As I binged on the aftermath of the World Series and learned about the Chicago Cubs, principles and concepts came to mind:
Day, D. V. 2000. Leadership development: A review in context. Leadership Quarterly, 11: 581–613.
