  • When you can create an environment where people are doing their best work in collaboration and teamwork, you can create insane results.
  • You can no longer be good at just one thing. In order to do your job well, you have to be able to operate effectively in multiple arenas.
  • Get frequent and consistent feedback from people you know and trust. One example: Have a question you can ask your team on a consistent basis and compare their feedback over time.
  • Belonging and connection are at the core of everything we do.
  • When you get down into the data, people want to main things: They want to do great work and have great relationships.
  • If you do only one thing, do this: Have a deep understanding of your people.


  • What is some lesson, saying, or experience that continues to influence your leadership to this day? Being around people who value relationships and collaboration.
  • Use three descriptors to finish this sentence: “A leader is…” Vulnerable, curious, and gets continual feedback.
  • What is a question that leaders should be asking either themselves or others? How would you rate our relationship, why did you rate it that way, how can I move it closer to a ten.
  • What book would you recommend to leaders? Anything by Brene Brown
  • If you could get every listener to start doing something THIS week to help them be a better leader, what would it be? Invest in your own self-awareness—your blind spots are what are sabotaging your success more than you realize.
  • As a general life principle, is it better to ask “why?” or “why not?” I’d ask “what” instead.
