Really impressed today going back to work after the 5-week Federal government shutdown…
And who is at the front gate, in the dark and freezing cold welcoming every single person back?
The director of the agency!
And not only that, but he is handing out morning donuts to the crew.
This was a truly spectacular display of leadership.
I’ve seen this only one other time in my 30-year career and that was at the Secret Service, where the director stood behind the dessert table at the agency holiday party serving out the ice cream.
Humility and giving are what true leadership is all about.
I am proud to serve under such leaders as these. 😉
