I suspect that every large organization has a few awesome giants.
For me, awesome giants are the executives respected by all for their intelligence, for their gravitas, and for their ability to cut through the noise. No problem is too large for them. They see the way out and they show you the path — not the easy one but the necessary one. They demand of you more than you think yourself capable of and set you up for success. They do not lead with fear, but their awesomeness can be intimidating.
One such giant, now retired from my company, is Paul Beach. Paul just launched his own blog to share his thoughts on government, politics, public policy, corporate compliance and ethics. I am so pleased to be once again in a position to receive, from afar, Paul’s wisdom. I will look forward to each new post.
