You cannot separate a real man from his values or his leadership skills. No where is this more apparent than when you watch a man with his children. Whether he’s watching his daughter take her first steps and catching her before she stumbles… Or, vigilantly guarding his infant son while he fretfully sleeps in a hospital NICU… Fatherhood is an important leadership role. .

To all the dads that understand the value of teamwork, setting priorities, making responsible choices and rewarding good effort at home, I thank you. To all the dads, that put fairness in front of ego and share decision making and goal setting at home, I thank you. And, especially to my son, Geoff Overholt, and my son-in-law, Justin Kirby, I thank you. And, I celebrate the gift of who you are with your families, your business community and with the world.
