Drew Dudley: Everyday leadership
Drew says, “We spend so much time celebrating amazing things that hardly anybody can do that we’ve convinced ourselves that those are the only things worth celebrating, and we start to devalue the things that we can do every day, and we start to take moments where we truly are a leader and we don’t let ourselves take credit for it, and we don’t let ourselves feel good about it.”
Carrie Green: Programming your mind for success
Carrie says, “I battled so hard with myself for such a long time, until I finally figured out what I needed to do… Instead of being my own worst enemy, I had to be my best friend. I had to believe in myself more than anyone else. I had to have the confidence in myself to do the things I needed to do in order to succeed. And it all started with changing what was going on inside of me.”
Kare Anderson: Be an opportunity maker
Kare says, “There’s no greater opportunity (than to use our) best talents together more often for the greater good, and accomplish things we couldn’t have done on our own…. Even more than giving … is the capacity for us to do something smarter together for the greater good that lifts us both up and that can scale.”
