Obviously, the biggest leadership topic in the news is Barack Obama’s inauguration. As a country, we have such high hopes for his success given the challenges we face. Will he be able to deliver plans and actions that address the problems facing our nation here and abroad? It’s not as simple as thinking he “can do it,” because Congress and the Senate also play a role. However, it feels great to have optimism and HOPE that positive change is on the horizon for each of us.
