Strong Voices

I appreciate the creative and probing questions that co-hosts Laura and Bill use to help these interviews come alive with feeling and depth. Their own reflections in conversation after each interview are rich in vulnerability and insight. I celebrate the gifts of these two visionary friends of Leadership Education and all my colleagues who helped these strong voices be heard in this way.
