“ You’re showing up and working on things that you should be working on, but you’re taking advantage of the full person… and leveraging on that strength… What makes me a great mom sometimes also helps me be a good leader… So why would I cut off that part of myself? ”

Bhoomi Pathak
“ A teacher’s job is to see what someone is capable of even and especially if they don’t see it yet themselves, and then inspire them to direct their attention in the most fruitful way. I lead well, because I lead like a teacher. ”
