Leadership History Lesson for February 21st

On this day in leadership history in 1950, the first International Pancake Race was held in Liberal, Kansas. The friendly little competition between Liberal, Kansas, and Olney, England, with women running 415 yards down the streets of each town flipping pancakes, has been going on for more than 70 years now. It is still the only race of its kind on the planet.

What’s the leadership lesson? Honorable leaders know that it’s important to have fun and create some friendly competition amidst the work. Strike a healthy balance in your day-to-day work.
