I am sure I am not the only one who has been thinking about leadership over the last few days. Leadership, as we all know, is not tested when seas are calm and skies are blue. Leadership is tested in a time of crisis. It is in times of crisis that leadership matters most.
These thoughts were in the forefront of my mind as I was reading Peter Moore’s excellent book, “Endeavour: The Ship That Changed the World,” which tells the story of the ship best known as the vessel on which Captain James Cook and his crew sailed their voyage of exploration and discovery between 1768 and 1771.
