I was inspired this week by the story of a teenager who set out to walk 10 miles – in the snow – to a job interview. I guess I wasn’t the only one who was inspired because the story made national news. This just proves that responsibility is so rare, it is newsworthy.


So what are the hallmarks of a responsible leader?  I would say if you held these traits up against this young man’s actions, he might just pass the RESPONSIBLE test.  How about you?
