“You can never have too many good leaders.”

“The work culture stems from the leader. As a leader, the way you behave, your values, your principles, gives everyone else permission to act the same way.”

“When you do the right thing for the right reason when you are a good person, you attract good people, and good things happen.”

“We think of ourselves in a way that we want to be.”

“As your life changes, your motivators re-align.”

“It was less about the trophy and the plaques. It was more about legacy.”

“If you don’t know what’s going on in your people’s personal lives, how can you ever expect them to be productive?”

“If you don’t know how to deal with anxiety in your workplace right now, you are dead on arrival.”

“You can be demanding, and you can be kind.”
