Voices of Leadership

My measuring stick

I can only open my door

Posted by Jay Markiewicz Share Your Voice

There is a structure in life that I use to inform my experiences with the intent to find a new perspective of choice. I call it the swinging door. Imagine that I have a door within me. Imagine that the person(s) I am in relationship with also have a door within them. The possibilities that I...
