In Jamaica

I’m in Jamaica again for another leadership practices inventory workshop with the police dept. My seat mate today on American Airlines was an entrepreneur who introduced Jamaican “Tastee patties” to Belize and his business is doing well. Took 2 years of working 14-15 hour days, six days a week, to get it up and running, and now, a few years later, he is able to live in Jamaica while his business thrives in Belize with his brother running the daily operation. I love hearing stories like his. I asked him what he does as a leader that makes his employees enjoy working with him. He said he pitches in wherever needed — from cooking to cleaning up — so his employees know what is important to him.

I’m looking forward to finding out what is important to the leaders in my workshop tomorrow.
