(3.06) Leadership in the heat of battle.

Two sporting teams, both alike in dignity, In fair London, where we lay our scene, 
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” 
(with sincere apologies to Mr Shakespeare…)

What leadership object lessons can we take from a recent sporting controversy. Where two teams, two captains, face what seems to be the same event, but opposing narratives provide us with as glimpse of how complex leadership in the heat of battle can be like. You may not know, or even like, anything about this sport, but it certainly gives KG Paul plenty to talk about.

And we welcome our new sponsor!

Annandale Cellars has generously agreed to support our project with the most delectable array of wines. Owner and manager, Chris Loth, will curate and select a bottle for every episode, and we will proceed to drink it!! Of course, all in the service of some leadership insights.

Our first bottle from our newest friends is a Crudo Shiraz 2022 (Luke Lambert), a gorgeous red in the Rhone style of Southern France. Smooth and slightly ‘spicy’ in the mouth, it is a very satisfying drink. We encourage you to check it out at Annandale Cellars!

Please join us, we’d love your company. Sláinte friends!
