My childhood years come to mind while writing this Leadership Development series....as well as my prayer for eagle-eye vision. I grew up on a cattle ranch. Not a sprawling, luxurious ranch a movie star buys to escape a crazy life. This was more like a Laura-Ingalls-Wilder-Little-House-on-the-Prairie ranch. Our home was an eight-hundred-square-foot tar-papered homestead shack. Not bad, except that we had no running water. Yes, I used an outhouse every day of my life, until I was thirteen years old. Looking back now, I think - How did we do it!!?? 

Who are the key leaders, managers, coaches, and mentors who invested in your leadership development when you were still an "emerging leader" - still rough around the edges? What sage words were deeply imprinted into your heart or head, even though it may have happened decades ago? Today, I pay tribute to one of these people. Janie Jasin, author, speaker, coach, mentor, and dear friend, deserves my deepest gratitude.
