What is Your Crucible?

What is Your Crucible?

Yesterday was officially the first day of Summer; I hope you have enough margin in your schedule to enjoy it! I enjoyed reading this extended blog post from HBR and I also love the opening photo! After reading the post, I thought about the leadership crucibles the Lord has led me through and how they have greatly shaped my leadership.
