Leadership is much like being a dad. It’s all about opening doors. Like a dad who buys his kid a unicycle, we challenge our kids (or our team members) to try new things, explore new ideas and discover what they are best at. Sometimes they fail, and sometimes they succeed beyond their own expectations.
