Action Wheel Leadership

"Denial is Not a River in Egypt"

by Dana Perez
(Portland, OR, U.S.A.)

Dr. Bob Terry conducted several workshops throughout the west coast for 500 U.S. Department of the Interior Fish and Wildlife Service managers. I attended all 12 of the two-day workshops that covered the principles of Dr. Terry's Authentic Leadership: Courage in Action model. One of Dr. Terry's many quotations that stuck with me is "Denial is Not a River in Egypt." A frequent comment that Dr. Terry would use when he encountered managers who denied the value of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. I have read Dr. Terry's publications several times over the years and continue to learn more during each reading.

Bob's Trips

Thank you, Dana. I remember well all the trips I arranged for Bob to be with your U.S. Fish & Wildlife group. He was always excited to be with you.
