"Most of the time alienated followers have been exemplary followers. Something has happened that has compromised the trust."

"A lot of times we think, ‘we’ve played this game before,’ but we won’t take the time to listen and learn before we engage, and it's important to illustrate the risks of that."

"I openly talk about leading and following with my team."
