What I learned about leadership driving a bus
Crossposted from the Expanding the Narrative blog
My story begins on a Saturday morning in early March. It was one of those beautiful spring days and I was on a bike ride with my friend Bonnie on the Cedar River Trail. I had recently finished my immersion role with the King County Facilities Management Division as part of the King County Bridges Fellowship program to develop leaders. So I was thinking about leadership stuff when I heard a loud splash.
I slowed down and Bonnie caught up to me, smiled and said “Did you see the beaver?”
I said “NO! Dang it I have always wanted to see a beaver!”
And that’s when I had my first “bucket list flash alert” of “I am 55 years old and I may well go to my grave with the only image of a beaver in my mind being that from Narnia!”
