I took the photo for my project and the one below when I visited Israel. They're boatmen on the Sea of Galilee. They are focused, intense, and passionate about what they do. What they promise, they deliver. I'm considering using the image below as the template for my project poster. Possible type on the image:

"Crappy is not a leadership style. Learn to lead. Jet City Leader."
