We ended our trip at the north perimeter of the Grand Canyon where fewer than a thousand visitors come a year. Then we said our farewells, having built strong bonds and experiencing many exhilarating moments together. I’m going to miss my trail companions, but I won’t forget the insights they gave me.
Leadership can be lonely. We sometimes have self-doubt, second guess ourselves, and wonder if we are leading our teams in the right direction. I often advise leaders during these times to focus on what we have achieved—our successes.
It means focusing on our strengths and bringing them to the table.
Thanks to my father for instilling in me the deep value of “keep on keeping on.” My tenacity and humility have served me well, both in my career and on this trip.
I wish you much self-belief, a journey of growth and renewal, and the ability to trust your gut.
