Who is your leadership role model
Helene St. James Detroit Free Press Published 7:28 PM EDT Mar 23, 2019 LAS VEGAS — As Dylan Larkin embraced wearing a letter on his sweater this season, two key role models have been Niklas Kronwall and Thomas Vanek. The Detroit Red Wings are skewing younger, leaning on Larkin, Andreas Athanasiou, Tyler Bertuzzi and Anthony Mantha, among others, to lead the team back to the playoffs. But the Wings believe young players need veterans to show them how to be good pros, and Kronwall and Vanek each in his own way do that. “Kronner is a guy who comes to work every day, loves the game,” Larkin said Saturday. “He’s a huge part of this culture that we talk about all year, where things may not be going our way but our work ethic every day has not changed.

Carol Cain Free Press Business Columnist Published 8:00 AM EDT Sep 22, 2018 Give Donald Trump credit for the tax breaks and regulatory reform that have taken place under his watch. But when it comes to serving as a role model for our nation, our 45th president deserves a resounding F, Jeb Bush says. The former Florida governor and presidential candidate will address the West Michigan Policy Forum in Grand Rapids on Monday. “He is not my role model as it relates to values I would share with my children and grandchildren,” Bush told me in a conversation ahead of his visit. Bush also won’t be among Republican candidates looking to throw their hat into the ring to possibly replace Trump in 2020. He told me he is done running for elected office. “I had my chance and gave it my all,” Bush said about his presidential run in 2016. “I was honored to be a candidate.” “There are different ways to make a … [Read more...] about Jeb Bush on President Donald Trump: ‘He’s not my role model’
Conservative champion: Kyle Kashuv has defended the Second Amendment after surviving a deadly school shooting. (Fox News) Parkland tragedy survivor Kyle Kashuv has emerged as a role model for young conservatives across the country -- and it was never more evident than this week, when he helped plan the largest-ever high school conservative conference. Kashuv -- a staunch defender of the Second Amendment -- played a key role in the Turning Point USA High School Leadership Summit, which was held in Washington, D.C., and attracted more than 800 students from at least 40 states. “It’s great to see these kids here because these are the leaders in their high school campuses. These are the kids who are going to energize and motivate other kids to come out to vote and to volunteer and to push conservative values,” Kashuv told Fox News. Kashuv – who will enter his senior year at Stoneman Douglas High School in the fall -- booked many of the speakers … [Read more...] about Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv emerges as conservative role model, Second Amendment champion
Chairman Candidates Offer Broad Choices and Visions for a Blue Future “The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower HOUSTON- Tremors and aftershock fallout continue as some Harris Democrats are clamoring for unity, inclusion and historic changes in leadership in the party starting at the top. The leadership and future of Harris County Democrats is at the center of great debate and hangs in the balance as several candidates square off to replace resigning Democratic Party Chairman Lane Lewis.
