The United States of America may be more than two centuries old, but the examples laid down by the founding fathers still teach us new lessons every day. In honor of Independence Day, HR Break Room® dives deep into the American Revolutionary War by examining the important leadership lessons from one of its most pivotal and iconic moments: George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River.

In this episode of HR Break Room, Caleb and Chelsea are visited by Paycom’s Director of Tax and American history buff, Jim Quillen, to discuss the full story before reflecting on the historic event’s biggest takeaways for today’s HR leaders. You will learn about:

  • finding talent in the unlikeliest of places
  • why it’s important to hold steady in the face of doubt
  • the benefits of clearly communicating a vision
  • the importance of being visible for your people
  • why it’s not enough to just do your best, but do what is required
