“The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner.”
~Gordon B. Hinckley
I am energized by the possibility in all people to achieve great things. The joy of leadership is to provide the environment in which anyone can exceed their perceived limitations and deliver exceptional results for themselves and for their teams. This environment must be one of optimism, a clear purpose, mutual trust and respect, hard work and perseverance. In this environment, all members contribute at a high level, rather than relying on a few stars. Each of us, whether as a titled leader, or a leader among our peers, can create and preserve such an environment. And in today’s complex and highly competitive environment, we must.
