The real hero of The Grinch is Max.
The Grinch's trustworthy canine companion is more than an antler-wearing sidekick.
He is a testament to the patience and rigour of thoughtful leadership.
Most would jump in to correct the misguided protagonist, yet Max holds space for growth.
Many would abandon the Grinch long before he broke through his tiny heart.
Alternatively, Max listens and shows quiet compassion.
There are a million stories of brilliant leaders to which you may subscribe.
Sometimes the value lies not in learning from the apparent lessons.
Spend time finding the subtle, not-so-obvious genius around you.
You're a mean one before coffee, Mr. Grinch,
