What does great leadership look like to you?
True security and great leadership looks for ways to give place to others. Great leaders can put other people’s strengths on display. They know it’s not solely about them. I’m honored to call Jan Rutherford a mentor. Jan is a leader who can truly do the above. He has shown me an amazing range of leadership styles that both inspire and bring hope. Jan is a US-Irish citizen and a retired Special Forces green beret. He lives in Oregon with his lovely wife Jackie and leads trips to Ireland with MBA students from The University of Denver. I’ve learned a lot from him and have enjoyed watching some of his hard test crucible expeditions with executives and military veterans all over the world.
