Movie: Extraordinary Measures

This is an awesome movie and an excellent example of leadership in action.  Inspired by true events…

The story starts with John Crowley (Brendan Fraser) whose two young kids have a deadly disease called Pompa. They are not expected to live longer than a year or two at the most. Heartbreaking… But John decides to do something about it.  He goes to see a doctor and scientist named Robert Stonehill (Harrison Ford) whose research about the disease could be helpful.

In the end, John helps Stonehill finance his research, in hopes of making a cure…

The question of leadership is that often times it is real life situations that demand that we step up to take the lead on something – rather than wait for someone else to do something about it.
