HOW ABOUT YOU
Jake reminds us that it's not enough for us to "just" do a good job. If we are going to be a driving force in our organizations, we must challenge others to do great things! When was the last time you challenged your colleagues to be world-class? What happened next?
I'd love to hear from you.
