I believe that insightful action is the key to transforming relationships, performance, and uplifting society.
Leaders routinely grapple with complexity, uncertainty, diversity, and rapid change. To manage, you navigate an avalanche of information and opinions -- of varying quality. That's the problem. You don't need more random information; you need rigorous information that leads to insight! Cultivating insights takes time, effort, and experience.
