In Conversation with Randy Hall: Engaging Leadership

“I think leadership is more influence rather than authority or power.

~ Linda Fisher Thornton

In Conversation with Lolly Daskal:
Lead from Within

“Everything we do is personal. We spend most of our time at work so if you cannot really appreciate, if you cannot really resonate, if you cannot recognize the person who you’re working with for who they are, how are you going to work well with them? How are you going to be successful with them?”
