It is a terrible feeling to watch a dangerous condition build and gain momentum; standing still and waiting for it to hit with full force. It is easy to become paralyzed with inaction in the midst of such a storm, but that is precisely when it is most critical that we act—rather than simply react. Tapping our inner courage, we must calculate the best way to alter the battleground and go on offense. Many “assured” outcomes have been turned on their head by courageous leadership under fire. 

—Mike Hazell
