The breakfast table is usually the place our day begins. "Leadership" is the first in, I hope, a series of stories about our morning chats. The inspiration for this volume came from the 7 December 2018 prompt "Debate". Part 2, "The 7 Habits of Highly Successful Assassins", was not supposed to be in this volume at all. It began as a stand-alone story about an assassin writing a self-help book to respond to the March first prompt "List". But I was having trouble making it work. Then my muse, my wife, showed me how to fix it. But I still liked the title. I apologise for any confusion this may engender.
