After watching Wind River, I’m in shock. The movie starring Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye in the Avengers) and Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch in Captain America: Civil War) has to be one of the best movies of 2017.
Wind River tells the story of Renner’s character Cory Lambert as he helps track the murderer of a young Indian girl on the reservation. The story takes twists and turns you may not see coming. In the end, Wind River left me breathless.
With all of that, I wanted to take a look at the leadership lessons found in Wind River.
