Where do we get guys (and women) like this?

“   ‘Where do we get guys like this?’ the reporter asked.

                The answer is as simple as it is profound. You give them to us. You parents, you families, you brothers and sisters, grandparents, uncles and aunts, friends, you loan us these wonderful young people. They are the fruit of our country, raised by caring parents or a single parent, nurtured in love, and taught that Americans are supposed to have concern for the rights, freedoms and needs of not only our own citizens, but the citizens of the world … The credit for their goodness, and their greatness, rests with all of you back home. The mothers, the fathers, husbands, wives, all of the family members, all the friends, the teachers, the preachers, scout leaders, football coaches, volunteer youth workers of all sorts, each person who had a positive impact on the lives of these young people deserves a piece of the credit.”

Leadership coach, trainer, and speaker

Currently working in healthcare as the VP of Facilities Development for a large long term care facility in northern New Jersey. Recently became certified by John Maxwell to coach, train, and speak using his material. This has led to working with individuals and organizations wanting to raise their level of leadership and over all performance. Finding that to be a real passion, the blog / web site has become a platform to share thoughts and resources that have been found to be helpful.
