Naples. Jacksonville. Miami. Destin. San Francisco. As the jingle from Sesame Street goes, “one of these things is not like the others.” If you’ve traveled at all during the pandemic, read a newspaper, or if you generally don’t live in a 1,000-foot-deep hole devoid of all technology, you probably know where I’m going with this.
The difference in the quality of leadership throughout the pandemic has been impactful for everyone.
