I’ve always been taught and believed that in the end, nice wins. My leadership and management style reflects this. I choose to interact with others in deliberate ways that entice them to want to buy-in to the greater goals I’m proposing, instead of forcing them to do so by being a dick.

YES, hard conversations are inevitable at times, not optional.

Communication skills are king. Get fucking good at them. Better than you think you are.

Always. In all ways…
