The "River" of Leadership

Like a river, strong leadership moves ever forward
regardless of what might lie in its path

Whether sand, rock, or imposing mountain;
water always finds its way

It can be forceful or subtle, yet,
strikingly relentless and ever present

Never giving in - never giving up,
wearing away whatever resistance it may encounter

Taking any course necessary in order to accomplish its goal
Whatever that goal might be

Yes, leadership is like a river, always moving forward and
in a promising direction, bringing with it all that it touches

Like a team with a captain maneuvering a ship through treacherous waters,
setting the right example with their positive actions, choices and behavior

Never giving up, never giving in, and with true belief in their teammates
and the direction they wish to travel

And like a river, always moving that team onward, and in a positive direction,
toward its ultimate potential and toward their ultimate goal



Maybe a goal like the STANLEY CUP!!!
