“Leadership is the art of accomplishing more than the science of management says is possible.” – Colin Powell
This week my travels found me starting Monday with my typical WIG calls, the Berkshire Hathaway Energy weekly call, then traveling to Palm Springs for the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Marketing Forum, which I just left today.
Elsewhere in the country, this week we sadly lost Colin Powell. He was the first Black U.S. Secretary of State, the youngest-ever chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, a four-star U.S. Army general with combat duty in Vietnam and a national security advisor, and for decades, his leadership has had a profound impact on our nation’s foreign policy.
