Driving A School Bus

Reading time:  31 seconds – plus

Sure, you can drive a school bus.  Just stop at railroad crossings, make wide turns and learn to work the flappy stop sign.  Piece of cake.

Until the F4 tornado is bearing down on you and the eleven kids sitting behind you.  The chapter on avoiding a tornado was missing from your School Bus Driving for Dummies text book.  You have just seconds to act – your leadership is critical right now!.  What will you do?

This is not an imaginary scenario.  It happened in Henryville, IN and the person at the wheel was Angel Perry.  The good news is that she was up to the task of leadership in that place, at that moment.  Before you click through to read the full story the way the Contented Cows guys tell it, get clear that you’re that bus driver every day.  The people who look to you for leadership need the same things from you that those eleven kids needed from Angel Perry.

This isn’t a practice run-through; it is your life as a leader and it’s happening in real time.

Here’s a link to the story.  Be sure to pause to watch the video as instructed.  When you’re done, sit back in your chair and answer this question: “How can I be as good a leader every day as Angel Perry was that day?”
