In the 1960’s my father left his civil service job at the State of NJ DOL, to pursue a career in the private sector. Having achieved a Masters in Labor Relations / Business Psychology, he followed the money and prestige to Wall Street. What he found broke his heart.

Apollo 13 is one of my favorite movies. Anyone who has ever worked with me knows how frequently I’ll reference this excellent film which reenacts one of the most stellar (pun intended) American achievements and moments in history. It is chock full of great examples of team work, leadership, personal accountability, problem solving and good ole ingenuity.
