I believe in people. I believe in people’s ability to create change and to create value. I believe in people’s capacity to build organizations, companies, and programs that contribute to a better world. I believe there are better solutions out there waiting for ethical leaders to uncover them and act. I believe leadership is a tool that should be used for the common good. I believe I can help develop those leaders, both within organizations and those hoping to create their own organization.
