Brilliance Demands Bravery

What does it mean to be brave? We often think of those people who muster one huge, courageous act of the will to overcome an obstacle.

The Cauldron Of Creative Conflict

Have you ever said something in a meeting that you didn't expect to? It happened to me last week, except it wasn't a meeting, it was in a speech given at the Global Leadership Summit to over 400,000 leaders and influencers across the world. The particular line was, "Brilliance is forged in the cauldron of creative conflict." Fortunately, I believe this to be true to the core of my being. You have to fight for brilliant work. And when you collaborate, that means having healthy conflict with others too. On this episode, I share a few ideas for how to engage in healthy creative conflict with your team.
