Eating Plants & Pacesetting Leadership
Eileen McLellan extolled the virtues of plant-based eating. It emphasizes whole, minimally processed foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts. She talked about food quality, and promoting a diet that features locally sourced, organic food whenever possible. While the focus is on plants, animal products are not off limits, but should be limited. Additionally, eating plants helps prevent heart disease and reduces the risks of developing diabetes.
MY PACESETTING LEADERSHIP STYLE
Clayton Horn manages Planker’s restaurant. He describes his leadership style as ‘pacesetting’, and knows that he moves and thinks faster then most of his employees. He gets frustrated when they slow him down, and he is working on the Toastmaster principle of stopping to listen. He doesn’t want to be labeled as a control freak, but admits that it is his natural tendency.
