Touched on the role of failure in leadership growth from the Q Source (Q4.5). Without failure, we are not able to learn and grow as leaders. Fear of failure often causes stagnation in our ability to grow as leaders and HIMs. We should embrace our failures, and learn and grow from them to become the best leaders that we can be.

As an incredible gesture of goodwill, the leadership team gave me some money to help me out during this tough time – knowing that I was laid off in July, they wanted to help a fellow pax. However, I do not have a great need for money at this time, and I want to do something meaningful with the funds. I have decided to create a fund of sorts that we can use to help any fellow pax if the need should arise. If the money is not used by the end of the year, I hope that we can find a good cause to put it towards.

Danish seemed to have injured his shoulder. I hope that we can support him in anyway possible, and he is able to continue workouts. He has been an important leader and motivator for the Lighting Rod.

Over and out, Bunny
