Accompanied by my father Alan, I shared many leadership lessons imparted by the amazing supportive leader, the late Inspector Dave Stevenson.
I shared one of the most memorable lessons. I was standing beside Dave on the police Academy oval, a place I could confide what was happening in my life, and received some wise advice.
This day, I turned to him. Choosing my words carefully, I said in a low soft voice, “Dave, you are the most respected leader I know. What is your secret?” He responded, “Greeny, it is really quite simple, I say please, thank you, and treat people how I like to be treated.”
Simple? Yes! A powerful leadership lesson? Extremely!
To learn more about the leadership style and legacy of Dave Stevenson I invite you to read the valediction I wrote about Dave for his family here: twiceshot.com/tribute.
