“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.”
Meister Eckhart

In 1863, in the midst of a Civil War that had been raging for more than two years and shortly following the Union victories at Vicksburg and Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation to Americans:
“Set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving.”

Colin Powell

Successful organizations possess numerous attributes that distinguish them from their competitors. Leadership is the key component that contributes to the success of these effective teams.
