There is a ton of literature that tells people what leadership is about and how you can become or be a better leader. But what if I said that the most important lesson on leadership can be learned from a horse?

Thoughts on self-discovery, optimism and future preparedness

Not at least in the last 35 years have I seen a global, unanimous hatred for something as inanimate as a year. 2020 is the one singular demon of all our lives. Lives were lost to disease, natural disasters, riots and depression. We have all witnessed real-life apocalyptic scenes from…
