  • keep your eyes on the road ahead. | Shannon in Ottawa

    Excellent post on leadership from Shannon in Ottowa. She says

    “When I was learning how to ride my motorbike, the instructor reminded us over and over to keep our eyes on the road where we want to go. Allowing our gaze to stray and linger on oncoming traffic or the ditch will lead to disaster: You drift towards your focus. To avoid an accident, keep your eyes on the road ahead.”

    Great post for those in leadership or in schools.
