What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.
Henry David Thoreau
We spend one third of our lives at work. This is one of the reasons I work with leaders in organizations to bring out the best in themselves and others, so they are intentional about creating an environment that inspires great work and attracts diverse people who want to make a positive difference - not only for their teams and organization, but for the people and community they serve and impact.
