Back a year and half ago, Fargo, North Dakota (my home state) was going through a potentially devastating flood. Associated Press reported a story about Fargo’s mayor, Dennis Walaker – the hero of the Fargo flood. Here’s an excerpt from the story:
“When an 8-year-old girl died after the car she was riding in spun out of control and was struck by another car, Walaker blamed the crash on a rut that the city failed to fix. He thought it was important to let the driver — the victim’s 15-year-old sister — know it wasn’t her fault, and he wasn’t worried that it could open up the city to a lawsuit.”
When is the last time you or anyone else in your firm acted like this?
