When Did You Realize You Were a Leader?
My best recollection takes me back to a Pizza Hut during my college days. The weekend had come and a dozen or so friends gathered for an evening dinner and lively conversation. And boy was the conversation lively. No one could hear the waitress as she repeatedly returned to take our order. She was patient, but after coming back several times, I could see the frustration in her eyes. So I took charge. While my friends kept up the chatter, I quickly placed the order for the pizza. The conversation didn’t skip a beat and voila, a short while later to the surprise and dismay of my friends, pizza showed up (enter sheepish grin as I excuse myself to wash my hands).
