"I want to show the example of me being not perfect — and by showing this to support the people who are next to me."
"It's a unique position to really like everybody you work with. Most people don't like everybody they work with; they tolerate the people they work with. I actually like all the people I work with."
"I love that not knowing is embraced in the conversations we have. Because we both get excited about what comes from that. I don't have to tell somebody what to do. I don't have to have the answer for their life."
"You don't have to know all the perfect, powerful questions if you approach that individual with genuine curiosity and genuine compassion. Because everyone has a story. And when you genuinely want to hear 'what is reality from their vantage point?' then that really is the foundation to creating trust. And being able to create that shared vision of 'what does what does the future look like?'"
"I get myself into this discipline of slowing down. When I started to talk slower — just be with people, instead of having to do something — even if we didn't say much, that whole being there has a new dimension. It's made me realize the importance of presence, the importance of just going with a breathable space, where the breathing is deep and fulfilling. It's giving your lungs a chance to really come alive."
"Be very appreciative of what is different in your thinking that has value, because we need the outsiders. Outsiders may bring the value that the insiders don't see. It's invisible. My work sometimes is to make visible what is right under people's noses. And they go, 'Are you kidding? I didn't see it.' I go, 'I know. Now what? Now that you see it, you can't unsee it.'"
