I come away from each monthly meeting of Vistage Group 1107 with a jewel. This one was from Paul Heagen who shared with us a quote from his daughter - "Just be a Dad".
I am part of the male species that during an obligatory short period of listening - jumps into problem solving and recommending solutions. Add to that, the Dad scenario of attempting to solve problems without even being asked - we have this great vision of being the expert coach on the playing field of children. Or maybe the boss giving advice to a subordinate.
So the lesson today is - stop engineering and "Just be a Dad"
