Today at UNC Pembroke two exceptional women are retiring-Marla Locklear and Nancy Crouch. Both are leaders because they know how to serve others.

Sometimes when I am exercising or driving I hear a new song come up on my Discover Weekly Playlist from Spotify. That new song has lyrics that make me think about leadership.

discover weekly

That happened two weeks ago on a 3 mile hike on a cold January morning. It made me think of the exceptional leadership capabilities of women especially Nancy and Marla.

Here are the first 3 verses of the lyrics:

Way back when
In the beginning of time
Man made the fire then the wheel
Went from a horse to an automobile

He said, “the world is mine”
He took the oceans and the sky
He set the borders – built the walls
He won’t stop till he owns it all

And here we are
Standing on the brink of disaster
Enough is enough is enough is enough
I know the answer

The first three verses are followed up by the chorus found below

Put a woman in charge
Put a woman in charge
Put the women in charge
Put the women in charge
Put a woman in charge
Put a woman in charge
Put the women in charge
Put the women in charge

The song is called “Put a Women in Charge” and is performed by Keb’Mo and Rosanne Cash.

Roasanne is the oldest daughter of the late Johnny Cash-photo below from the 1950’s


Keb’Mo is a blues artist that has won 4 Grammys.

The song was released in November just after the historic number of women elected to congress. Often times women are overlooked but my experiences is often a women is the right choice for a leadership skills not because of gender but because of the results she gets with the team she is serving.

If you want to listen here it is

Thanks Nancy and Marla – I think Keb’ Mo and Rosanne Cash were singing about you.
