Don't Be An Armchair Coach/Critic

Great leaders accomplish great things because they take risks and are decisive. They make the best decisions they can with the information they have available. Will they be right 100% of the time? Of course not. But the test of greatness is not "what mistakes did the individual make" but rather "what did they accomplish". Their lives need to examined in the context of the totality, not the isolated events.


Leave the statue where it is and tell the WHOLE story. Provide historical context. Ask questions. As the sign outside the Oskar Schlinder Museum in Krakau Poland says: "Ask yourself 'What would I have done?'"
