Leadership Lessons I Learned From My Parents
How Their Values Shaped The Leader I’ve Become Today
In January of 2019, I became CEO of Whitnell. I consider it a great privilege, and a great responsibility, to lead Whitnell into our next phase of growth. Leadership is, in fact, a topic that is important to me. I see all sorts of examples today of what it means to be a leader. My colleague Bob Peckenpaugh wrote an article called why we need leadership now more than ever. I think he’s right. We do need good leaders that we can trust and count on. We need leaders with visions and realistic plans and a willingness to keep executing even through adversity.
I aspire to be that kind of leader. I believe it’s important for leaders to be clear about their motives, why they do what they do. I can think of no better way to explain why I do what I do than to tell you about my parents. Their example shaped me into the leader I am today. Here are leadership lessons I learned from watching them.
