      Thank you, Rodrigo. Glad you enjoyed it! Scott had a ton to share.

    Todd, the point that stands out in my mind is to be interested, not interesting. This is so crucial for leaders: it wins trust, it inspires, and it creates teams that thrive and sacrifice for each other as others on the team adopt the same mindset. Good leaders are focused on others, not themselves. Thanks for the reminder!

    • Todd Henry

      Agreed, Mark. That really hit me as well. I’m making a more conscious effort to be deeply vested in conversations.
