What is one habit that has helped you succeed?
“Focusing on what is right versus who is right. Every team member, from individual contributors to executive leaders, can add value and provide thought leadership. Focusing on the ideas themselves, as opposed to where they came from, provides a diversity of thought that helps teams win.”
