We vote on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November because many years ago, traveling to polling places required horse and buggy. People didn't want to force voters to travel on a Sunday and disrupt church, and they wanted to avoid having voting fall on All Saints Day; also, Wednesday was market day. So they chose Tuesdays.
There are all kinds of leaders in the world from every walk of life doing great things to make the world a better place. In early 2019 I came across a post by Matt Gerber about suicide, and after reading it, I instantly knew this was someone I wanted to interview, so I began to do my research on him and what he was doing.
As sometimes happens when I reach out to someone to do an interview, even though they accept, for a variety of reasons, it may never come to fruition. When I never heard back from Matt, I figured it was not meant to be and moved on. When I received an email more than a year later, I was surprised, but I was even more interested in knowing what he had been doing.
REFRESH YOUR LEADERSHIP Disconnect and Get Away
No matter what kind of leader you are, for sure, to be effective, you need to take care of yourself, which means recharging by disconnecting. It had been more than three years since we had gotten away anywhere, and just as we were beginning to think about where we might go, we and the rest of the world found ourselves in a pandemic none of us could have imagined.
David Surber is an experienced Supply Chain Operations Leader with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) focused in Global Business Management from American Military University. Serving for more than a decade in the U.S. Army David is a passionate believer that we can all find Fulfillment in the work we do. That as a leader it is a sole responsibility to ensure that the needs, wants, desires and dreams of our people can be merged with the goals and objectives of the business. It doesn't have to be one or the other. I recently had the privilege and honor to ask David about his Military service, experience and thoughts on leadership.
