There's an Irish blessing that hangs on my office wall and in my mother's hallway (right).
As a third generation member of the Devanes of County Kerry, I appreciate the funny, smart aleck humor of the Irish. It must be a gene because as many of you know, I certainly have it. The Irish have a quick wit, love to have fun and are extremely loyal to their people. This is the way I imagine great teams. Check out my grandmother and some of her sisters (below) who came over from Ireland in the early 1900s- she's the one with the giant purse. I hope you enjoy some of my Irish tales to begin the month of St. Patrick, while pointing out ways to grow teams. Slainte!
