20 May Ireland – Arrival

What a difference a week makes.  One week ago, I was getting stitched up after a bad bike crash in Phoenix.  Today, I had a fantastic lunch meeting with Western Union executives in Dublin!  Much to be grateful for!

IMG_2299I have never had a smoother trip to Europe.  The flight arrived early, our hotel room was ready at 11am (unheard of), I slept on the plane, and I’m not feeling any jet lag!

IMG_3002 (1)Thanks to Jacqueline Molnar, Chief Compliance Officer at Western Union (and Self-Reliant Leadership Crucible alumna), the meeting with the key executives in Ireland was engaging and inspiring. We had an exceptional conversation about business, leadership, cultural nuances, teams, challenges, mountaineering, Oscar Wilde, and even politics!  It’s inspiring to see the leaders of a large organization so dedicated to growing their organization by developing their people.

It’s good to be home, and looking forward to welcoming our students here tomorrow evening!

Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing. Oscar Wilde
