  1. Listened to both Simon Sinek and Michelle Gielan, Sinek a master teaching leadership qualities, yes, his comment right off the bat on courage being the constant he sees in quality leaders was great as well as the story of caring about your people, such a must, people thirst for this.

    Michelle, wow, I love it, optimism and positivity turned my life around, you do so much good when you lean this way and people want to be around you, it’s infectious and beautiful, tell them you care and keep doing it.
