Leadership Stories...Reading on an Airplane

While waiting on Labor Day while my air plane which was number 1,847 for takeoff, I had the chance to read through most of the current issue of Fortune magazine. A couple of interesting articles caught my attention…the first was Why McDonald’s Wins in Any Economy. Great story about why the Golden Arches is winning and why the CEO, a quiet, unassuming guy is leading the way.

In addition, while the days ahead will find a run of stories about 9/11, the magazine also carried a moving piece about Sandler O’Neill, a company that I’d never heard of that lost 66 employees on that sad day, and it’s resurgence led by a reluctant, yet powerful leader.
