Anna, Ben and I returned to the scene of the crime to celebrate our Shared Commitments.
Thanks to the Bloomington Public School System, Anna communicated “visitor” and “Supermarcado” with girlish sincerity in a way that the young officer decide to show pity on the stupid American 50-something male driver. The officer returned from her car, waved her finger at me like a two-year-old and said: “No citacion – no more U-turns.”
After visions of spending the night in a Mexican jail, I was grateful, relieved and significantly humbled by my leadership lesson from vacation.
Good leaders make a habit of negotiating shared commitments with their teammates before venturing off into bold new territory. And they embrace the skills, talents and unique abilities of their team members to keep them out of trouble.
