We are all judged and measured by our performance. But before calculating revenue, memberships, or constituents, the key to any organizational growth begins with the relationships within the organization. Great culture brings results.

It's hard to lead a cavalry charge if you think you look funny on a horse.
Adlai E. Stevenson II
Power isn't control at all. Power is strength, and giving that strength to others.
Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal;
Avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader.
You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
Nancy D. Solomon
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
If you're not passionate enough from the start, you'll never stick it out.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
