We all know that every once in a while, your Boardroom may need an infusion of fresh blood. Someone with new ideas, who can offer a different perspective on things. But what if you have two equally qualified candidates to choose from? Each week will give you two famous individuals who just might be able to give your Boardroom the boost it needs, and YOU tell US who would be the better choice!
After being the first cadet ever to defeat the “Kobayashi Maru” test at Starfleet Academy, James Tiberius Kirk went on to become the youngest Captain in Starfleet history at the age of 32. Commanding the Starfleet flagship the U.S.S. Enterprise, Kirk saved the Federation many times, earning numerous distinctions and going down as one of the finest Captains in Starfleet history.
A brash, impulsive leader, Kirk was the kind of commander who “followed his gut,” willing to disregard rules and regulations when he felt the best resolution to the situation called for it, and frequently putting himself at risk rather than let his crew face danger. Despite a considerable ego, Captain Kirk always put his team first.
Born in France, Jean-Luc Picard always dreamed of leaving his family vineyard and exploring the stars. He saw his dream realized as Captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise D and E, where he made first contact with dozens of alien species, thwarted a Romulan plot against the Federation and helped save the galaxy from such deadly threats at the Borg and the Q-continuum.
A calm, cool-headed leader, Picard favored diplomacy over aggression and was not afraid to delegate, being skilled at finding good officers to work under him and training them well. A loyal officer, Picard spent decades working for Starfleet, fighting for the good of the galaxy.
