Last quote by Jeff Black

People don't want to stop you when you look so hurried. You may be on your way to put out a corporate fire, but you can't look like you are on you way to do that all the time. We just live in a nonstop world today and people need to slow down. We walk too fast, we talk too fast. We cut people off in meetings before they've really finished. We don't take a moment to create an opportunity to really connect with an employee who's perhaps in our office or in the hallway because we're so busy looking over our shoulder. Today, employees want to follow leaders who look approachable.feedback

What Steve Jobs did brilliantly is he just put pictures [or] a word, and it was just enough to ignite what he wanted to say. At the end of the week they will never remember all that data on a PowerPoint slide. But they will never forget a compelling story they heard from one of their leaders. So get back to good old-fashioned storytelling. His energy on the stage, his ability to explain simply a complex technological advancement, his love for Apple always came through.feedback

I'm a big believer that leaders need to be vulnerable and admit that they are not perfect, that they have made mistakes before and that they have learned from them. You're there to be a lifelong learner, just as the employee is.feedback
