Aristotle taught us that trust does not exist in the person being trusted. The virtue of trust lies in giving it away. Because when you give trust away, you’re giving the power to the other person to let you down or do right by you. And the virtue of trust lies in taking that risk in giving trust away.

instead of scaling a culture.. where people have the right to do.. instead – what is the right thing to do..
calling out all leaders – on character…

journey – go up and down and progress and never stop – we need to get back to journeys vs planning/budgeting
you can’t shift/nudge for characteristics that matter
journey is an ethic – it’s how it happens
if you’re not on a journey – you need a strategy, otherwise, you need hope
while hope is not a strategy – without hope there is no strategy – the most sustaining value there is
