Walk like Sec. Jesse
“The death of Sec. Jesse Robredo becomes a celebration of life.” BCDA President and CEO Arnel Casanova said during the Lead Like Jesse seminar I attended many years ago. And yes, indeed! Though I did not get the chance to meet Sec. Jesse Robredo personally, the far-reaching effect of his integrity and sincerity echoed in the hearts of the privileged individuals who worked for and mingled with him. And that stretched and extended up to my reach. Since then, his acts have moved me and inspired me to walk like Sec. Jesse.
I do not have a corporation. Neither do I lead a nation nor a small community. But I have a family. And within that family are children I would want to grow up seeing a dedicated and sincere mother who leads by example. That is where I do my walk.
