  George P. Nigh served four different terms as governor, more than anyone in state history. He was born in McAlester, Oklahoma, to Wilber and Irene Nigh on June 9, 1927. After graduating from Eastern Oklahoma A&M College at Wilburton and East Central State College at Ada, he returned to McAlester and became a school teacher. In 1950, at age twenty-three, Nigh became the youngest member of the state legislature when elected to the House of Representatives from Pittsburg County. In 1953 he introduced the bill that made "Oklahoma!" the official state song.
Oklahoma's governor from 1995 through 2002, Frank Keating was one of twin sons born on February 10, 1944, in St. Louis, Missouri, into the family of Anne Martin and Anthony Francis Keating. In that year the Keatings, a prominent oil family, moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Frank Keating attended private schools and graduated from Cascia Hall High School. After graduating from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., in 1966, he received a law degree from the University of Oklahoma in 1969.
Elected governor of the State of Oklahoma in November 2002, Charles Bradford Henry was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, on July 10, 1963, to Charles T. and Audre L. Garrett Henry. Brad Henry attended the University of Oklahoma, receiving a bachelor's degree in economics in 1985 and a doctorate in jurisprudence in 1988. He also served as managing editor of the Oklahoma Law Review in 1987–88. He subsequently served as president of Brad Henry Oil Company, Incorporated, from 1987 to 1989 and as a private-practice attorney before becoming city attorney of Shawnee in 1990.  READ MORE

Emotional Intelligence for Leaders.. and Life

 by Dave Rhea
  Almost a decade ago, I was fortunate enough to work for a company that, at the time, was eager to recognize and develop leaders from within its ranks. As a result, and after a lengthy application process akin to college entrance, I was chosen to participate in a year-long leadership fellowship that required several things. Among them were: Don’t let my participation negatively affect my day-job; be able fly out to various parts of the country once a month for 11 months; and eagerly participate in various projects designed to expand my leadership competency and explore my inner-workings, such as becoming aware of my tendencies, motives and styles of communication.

I had already been through the typical “Leadership” program, in the Central Florida area. However, this particular fellowship, called the Dolan Leadership Institute (DLI), was quite a different experience. What most affected my personal and professional style through the subsequent portion of my career were lessons of emotional intelligence and mindful leadership. I would venture to say that this understanding, which could be characterized as a shift in perspective, has had the most profound effect on my career trajectory, my ability to successfully parent my two boys, as well as improving interpersonal relationships inside and outside of the workplace.
