The focus of this bio is to share my perspective... It is of great significance that I enter these words with one hand; while my other arm cradles the bundle of my infant child. The methodical process of entering these letters emphasizes the importance of each moment, each opportunity, every smile and tear that adorns parenting. As I focused upon the systematic process of leadership development within the financial community, I immediately recognized parental symbolism within the processes created to develop and empower global leaders. Processes that foster a natural balance of knowledge and internal desire: True leaders contain an internal fire and courage. Philosopher Rollo May defines courage as being identical to the functions of the human heart for the human body; courage is the heart of the psychological virtues. Leaders are developed from their desire for more and empowered by the ability to achieve more. As a parent, I have an honorable position as the leader of my children. As a man that aspires to become the best father for my children: I embrace the lessons of my past and present leaders. Without them, I may lose focus; because of them I am more powerful, influenced and driven to leadership potential.
