Clint Eastwood is a global icon. He makes films that impact emotionally. Leadership is knowing ourselves and those we are responsible for as people and behaving accordingly.
One day, (over 10 years ago) I was the Duty Officer supervising a very serious incident. It was a blazing hot day. The time was 5 PM. A man in shorts and a tee-shirt with a little dog came up to me and said: “ Who is in charge here?”. I replied, “That’ll be me.” He said, “ I’ve just found the dead body of a girl nearby.” I asked him to repeat what he’d said so I could scrutinise everything about his body language, tone of voice. An experienced Sergeant took charge of the existing incident’s conclusion. I went with the man and sadly it was true. The full panoply of a Major Investigation was enacted. About 9 PM I became aware that it was getting dark. We had all been on duty six hours and adrenaline had meant that I had given no consideration to refreshments. I rectified this in a creative manner. People remember how you make them FEEL. Why director Clint Eastwood is the voice of real America.
