For A Leader
by DW Green — December 27, 2017
As 2017 draws to a close, I would like to thank our clients, business partners and vendors for your business and for your friendship. I’d like to thank each of you for the positive influence and impact you have had on my life and on my company. I am most grateful and appreciative of our relationships. I am honored to work with each of you. Thank you.
To acknowledge the end of the year, it seems both fitting and proper to share this leadership blessing with you. I am inspired by Mr. Donohue’s words and read them often.

The healing of wholesome words,
The encouragement of the

The springtime edge of the bleak
May you have a mind that loves
So that you can evoke the bright fields
That lie beyond the view of the
May you have good friends
To mirror your blind spots.
May leadership be for you
A true adventure of growth.
