“Great leaders create ripple effects across an organization and with those they lead. Character, integrity, and the decisions they make will have a long and lasting impact on the people and organization.

Will your small actions today ripple into more positive changes in the future?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

You're right the ripple effect can ripple bad stuff, just as it can ripple positive vibes my friend. I'll stick with the positive ripple effect! Have a great day and enjoy the weekend Jack!
