Through sheer resolve, he managed to not only survive the most horrific conditions imaginable, but walked out better for the experience. Dealing with the “Brutal Facts can be difficult! “Admiral James B. Stockdale” “What separates people, Stockdale taught me, is not the presence or absence of difficulty, but how they deal with the inevitable difficulties of life.” Jim Collins “The Optimist did not survive in the POW camp, because they were continuously disappointed and soon gave up hope and died of a “broken heart” James Stockdale “The Stockdale Paradox is a signature of all those that create greatness…. They maintain unwavering faith that they will not just survive, but prevail. And yet, at the same time, they became relentlessly disciplined at confronting the most brutal facts of their current reality.” Jim Collins “Leadership is equally about creating a climate where the truth is heard and the brutal facts confronted.” Winston Churchill “Churchillian” Character

1. Lead with Questions Not Answers
2. Engage in Dialogue and Debate, not Coercion
3. Conduct Autopsies without Blame
4. Build Red Flag Mechanisms vs. Are you going to rinse your cottage cheese?

-Dr. Kari Davis “ Stay Calm and Teach On!”
-Dr. Demekia Biscoe “Greatness is a Matter of Conscious Choice!”Jim Collins Reference
