Recently, my company took on a large new project. It brought me all the way back to when we first opened our office- everything was new and every detail needed to be figured out for the first time. There were lots of decisions, changes and curveballs. What I learned, as I have grown as a...

Secret Leadership Sauce

I have always wanted to be a great cook. Great chefs rarely follow a recipe; they just know the right things that can be combined together to make for a great meal.

Is it about Winning or is it about Competing?
