While attending an Executive Leadership Conference in his new role as a Leadership Development Consultant, he surprisingly meets Ralph Dean, the new President of the Capital Cargo Bank. AJ — as he likes to be called — had dinner with Ralph that evening, As a result of their conversation; he left the conference with a new consulting engagement reporting directly to Ralph. He had a week to fly down to Capital Cargo’s Charlotte Data Center and see if he could determine why the Bank had recently experienced multiple outages of their online banking systems. The problem had been traced back to the Charlotte Data Center. But, after multiple prior attempts, Ralph could not get an explanation that would “hold water” and was suitable to be presented to his Board of Directors during an upcoming meeting. What AJ found and reported back to Ralph a week later was not a real surprise. However, the degree of leadership “absence” in the Charlotte Data Center was astonishing.
