For many of us the greatest leader in our life was our mom. Mothers care, and they lead like it. They do so with love, by example and with courage. Mothers are often our primary developers, nurturers, teachers, coaches and support. Abraham Lincoln said it best when he said “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” It is my opinion that a mother’s care is Heavens model of leadership.
In watching this video you have to ask did this mother fail or is this 10 year old little boy just a “bad seed?” What type of leadership failure in a home would cause this? Is a mother really the boss of someone? Would it ever be okay to engage in this type of conflict (besides the slap of course) with an employee? And finally, is his name really “Dude?”
