Parent to child is like leader to direct report.

At it’s best it is honesty and trust – with no exceptions.

It is in being willing to fight (to the ‘death’, if necessary) for this relationship – at any cost.

To teach.


To grow more leaders.

Better leaders.

Even better than ourselves.

That’s what helped us, right?

How would we not spend our lives repaying the debt of gratitude?
