“I believe that leaders become better leaders when they have other species around us.” - Shawna Schuh
“The question is, ‘What do I want from this exchange? How do I want to lift this person up?’ Sometimes we as human beings want to make our point, or we want to make the person wrong or show their errors. And that's not good intent. And it's certainly not for a leader.” - Shawna Schuh
“When people leave you, they should be better than when they came.” - Natalie Born
“It's not about being the best and brightest. It's about bringing the best and brightest to the table. … I think part of leadership is finding the brilliance in the room and asking them to sit at the table and asking to have a conversation that carries all of us forward.” - Natalie Born
