I had a conversation with a former associate that I had to terminate. There are just a handful of true priorities that I have when it comes to leadership. One of those priorities is leaving those who work for me with the feeling that, despite what difficulties we face or what our differences may be– I care about them. Today, with the associate, she told me just that and offered an apology. And offered her gratitude. I think, sometimes, this path is difficult. I also think, sometimes, that I am capable of affecting real change in the lives of others. I’m enormously grateful.
