“You don’t command wind in the direction it blows, but you command a ship in the direction it sails.”

The C|Y|G team’s goal regarding chronicling Iconic Captain’s is to learn from these Leaders!
These CAPTAIN’S are in the position to influence others by their actions or inactions, and not to be silent in your or their own mistakes.
Alexander Pope is quoted as saying, “A man should never be ashamed to admit he has been in the wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.”
The first step in learning from a mistake is to admit that you were wrong. This is never easy to do, and it doesn’t take much imagination to understand how much harder it must be for a commanding officer to make that admission to his subordinates.
Failure is instructive. We rarely learn when things go well. We grow through learning from our mistakes. And when we share those lessons with those around us, it means less mistakes need to be made before we all collectively learn the lesson.
There are many attributes I admire in my leaders. Decisiveness. Patience. Conviction. Courage.
However, from my collective experiences, the trait I admire the most is insightfulness.
An insightful leader can be humble enough to learn from their mistakes and strong enough to share the lessons learned with others.
Let us learn together with these case studies of ICONIC INDUSTRY CAPTAIN’S!
