“Championship leader is a servant leader.”
“Part of being a leader is being able to make those decisions with enough impact, enough insight from all those around you to make the decision to deal with the outcomes.”
“I believe that all of us go through seasons in life and those seasons I’ve needed different people, or felt called to different people with really a lot of different character traits from each one of them.”
“My choices are to level up my game or find somebody else to do it right.”
“I think that’s so much of what mentorship and leadership is helping condense time down for ourselves and for those around us.”
“I still believe that most people are inherently good, and if you say something to me, it’s because you want me to expand my capacity.”
“Don’t ever assume that you know the answer, and assume positive intent for most people.”
