“A great man leaves clean work behind him and requires no sweeper up of the chips” Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Stepping into a new position can be a daunting task. Even more so, if you are placed in a position to clean up a mess left by your predecessor. Fortunately and blissfully, that is not something that I am faced with. My transition to COO with Lake Truck Lines has thus far been seamless. This is something that no doubt has to do with the strong foundation laid by the ones that came before me. The task at hand and for years to come is to leave a clean path for those who follow.
The foundation has been laid for success, but in order for it to remain that way we must not be content to just maintain the status quo. We must continue to learn and grow…to build and innovate and leave a clear path for the generations to come.
