“In addition to a long career in business, I have had the privilege of working with leaders in education over the past decade in geography that reaches from New York City to Dallas and Weslaco, Texas to a tiny Asian country called Brunei. What I have learned is profound and consistent regardless of geography, culture or language. Leaders are teachers whether they realize it or not. Teachers are leaders whether they like it or not. Kids watch adults — Teachers. Principals. Parents. Police officers. Store owners. Neighbors. To kids, all adults are leaders. Their behavior — not their words — teaches what is important. On their best days, adults teach character and dignity, a willingness to confront reality, concern for others, patience and forbearance in the face of challenge. On other days, adults may teach something very different. The question for every adult who may be observed by a child: What are you teaching?”
