Gaining Insight is a lot like mining for gold. You don’t set out for the dirt; you look for the nuggets.
Few people are successful unless a lot of people want them to be. We have the tendency to assume a great leader’s accomplishments came about from their own work. The truth, however, is that no leader would be great without the support and help of teammates. As a leader, you will never get ahead until your people are behind you. Leadership Gold teaches you how to flourish as a leader by understanding the people on your team, empowering them to work in their strength zone and becoming a leader worth following.

- Defining Moments Define Your Leadership
The choices we make in critical moments form us and inform others about our true nature.
