To all of my friends here on the Leader Business blog, please let me wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season! I thank you for helping shape my leadership journey and for allowing me to be a part of yours! May we continue to grow together in 2010!
Please remember the men and women who are separated from their families during the holidays. As shown in the video above, technology helps close the distance, and I will be grateful for that during my own deployment next year. But they certainly need our prayers for their continued safety and for success in their mission! Thanks to all of them for what they are doing for all of us. Freedom is not free and we should be grateful for those who are paying the price around the world.
Please remember our leaders, especially those who are deployed and doing all they can to keep morale high during the difficulties of separation. On Christmas in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, as was the case in previous conflicts, the mission still goes on. Strong leadership from nameless men and women leaders helps deal with harsh conditions, difficult missions, and the emotions that come with separation during the holidays. Thanks to all of them for what they are doing!
Happy Holidays to the troops and to all of you. That's Leader Business!
