Pretty Big Shoes to Fill

Today, on the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, we're reminded that great leaders, such as Dr King, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, and others leave us challenged to be our best selves.  None of them were perfect, and none of them had all the answers.  But their gift was that they always held to what they believed was right, fair, just, and sensible--even when it was personally risky to do so. 

We hope that all of you who are or who will be managers someday are able to hold fast to your own "line in the sand."  For, as a leader, you have some pretty big shoes to fill!
