My professional career to this point has been a winding path with many valuable discoveries along the way. I have learned from mentors, friends and associates and what I have learned is that each of us is valuable and powerful. I have learned that the job of a manager is to hire smart, capable and confident people. Then, let them do their best work and move every obstacle that gets in their way.

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people and shout orders to gather wood and divide the work. Instead, teach them to yearn for the immensity of the sea.”

― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
