Voices of Leadership

When we choose to lead from the inside out, leadership is not just something we do, it is the way we live. It is a commitment we practice every day.

Posted by Kelly Lewis Share Your Voice

"How do 12 different leaders read the same document and feel 12 different emotions?" and "How do 30 students hear the same words, from the same person, and respond 30 different ways?"
