My Father The Hero

Posted by John Mees on Nov 20, 2014 1:19:10 PM

My Dad is Superman. No, he’s bigger and badder than Superman. He’s a metamorphosis of all of the superheroes. I can’t remember ever needing him and not overtly receiving his helping hand. Once, I needed to design a car for the Boy Scouts Pinewood Derby. Pops was there (I won by the way….hard to compete with a scaled down model of a Ferrari). I had a difficult time as a young boy keeping my fluids inside me while sleeping. This is no lie. Guess who was there to move me to the dry side so he would be the one wading his way through the night on the wet side. Yup, Pops did that. I wanted to attend UNC, Chapel Hill. Someone special to me placed a call to my high school to let me know my dream had come true. Yup, it was Pops. I wanted to see the world after college. Having not a penny to my name I needed someone to make it happen. Pops was there. He has been there every time. He’s my hero.

Posted by John Mees on Jul 11, 2013 4:30:28 AM

Over the last decade, reality shows have become more and more popular because of the assumed realistic drama they create.  Viewers get wrapped up into the realness of them,  and feel as if we are gaining insight into someone's real life.  What we don't realize is that insight is often scripted, and what we are gaining is entertainment, not a prism from which to view the human condition.

Not Just Physical

Posted by Jordan Snider on May 2, 2013 11:00:57 AM

Coaching Views on Leadership

Posted by John Mees on Mar 11, 2013 4:41:16 AM

Leadership

As a high school Spanish teacher, coach of varsity golf and junior varsity basketball, and director of a summer camp, I am particularly sensitive to the leadership potential of the team members of which I lead. Through my experiences, I have found that leadership manifests itself in numerous ways within numerous personality types, but the common thread among all good leaders is that others consistently follow.
