Ron's quoteable's throughout the episodes
"Why not choose to say “I have power and I can change the world. I can be responsible with that power and intentionality.”
"Leaders fear being found our that they’re imperfect. Your humanity, your imperfection, your fallibility is your greatest asset and greatest source of credibility."
"Leaders have to appreciate that the IMPOSTER syndrome has a cost to other people."
"Millennials were the generation raised with the message "you can change the world."
"If you dig up underneath behind what's the driven-ness to advance? It's really the driven-ness for impact— NOT FOR SUCCESS."
"The good leaders are the ones who realize “the more I know, the more I don’t know” They begin their day with I don’t know. They solicit feedback. How can I serve you better? "
"You can spend the rest of your life singing to your hairbrush, but why wouldn’t you want the real thing? "
"Some of the best chapters of our lives don’t have titles until a little later. Most of us put the pen down rather than say I’m gonna co-create my story."
