“The leader’s role is to set the stage not perform on it”

5,127 attempts

My 17 year old daughter sat her driving test last week.  She failed.  “I’m not the kind of person who fails”, she growled, staring at the results sheet when she came home. Now, my daughter (she would definitely want me to make this clear to […]

Snow

Snow
