Communication showed up as a theme in the answers to a question I threw out during an Outdoor Industry Association workshop, ‘Who does leadership look like to you?’ True dat.

Interestingly, the definition of sure as an adjective boils down to a combo of confidence and certainty. Mine and my family’s weirdness aside, why then for us is it a non-answer? Katie gives me crap if I forget this and respond to a question of hers with that word. It’s a big deal for us.
