Beyond Great

Pilot Chesley Sullenberger was recently honored for his successful landing of US Flight 1549 in the Hudson River of New York. This was the first time in 50 years that a major aircraft crash-landed in the water with everyone surviving.

From the pilot who somehow managed to beat the odds and land the plane in one piece, to Josh, the passenger who actually read the safety card, so knew what to do once the plane landed. (note to myself: read the cards!), to the many people who stayed calm - Flight 1549 is an amazing story of teamwork, leadership, courage, luck and just plain beyond great.

Where can you go beyond great?

Whether you lead a company or team, sell products or a service, choose a context of beyond great and watch your people and business thrive.

"The greatest thing a man can do in this world is to make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given to him. This is success and there is no other." - Orison Swett Marden
