On This Day in Leadership History, July 19th

On this day in leadership history in 1985, Christa McAuliffe of New Hampshire was chosen to be the first schoolteacher to ride aboard the space shuttle. She died with six others when the Challenger exploded the following year.

What’s the leadership lesson? Even when not knowing the future, honorable leaders choose courage and some risk to advance in their areas of strength.
