My first post today is to share a great article I read about a CEO that had to rebuild an entire management team after a plane crash. I loved reading about the process to rebuild: give the team appropriate grieving time and then move those who are meant to stay, onward.
It reminded me a bit of the Hollywood film, “We are Marshall” which I cared for more than the critics. It’s a about rebuilding a football team after a plane crash.
Lastly, and also on the sports and leadership theme, I really enjoyed, “Invictus“, a Clint Eastwood film where Morgan Freeman plays Nelson Mandela. The story is about using the Rugby World Cup to help unify South Africa. I enjoyed the good leadership modeled in this one including the need to take chances.
