"Turbulence is inevitable, but misery is optional. Make turbulence work for you."

"If you say your people are important, you better mean it."

Captain Lambert,

Many civilian CEO’s do not talk this way. Of course, when the profit you produce is the most important thing and the stockholders do not think much about anything other than that, the job can be both turbulent and miserable. I think Capitalism is great but one has to be creative and then follow up on those thoughts, as this CEO points out.

Very Respectfully
