04:47 - Leader development is outdated, where there's the model of the single leader who needs to know some very static, specific skills.

07:30 -  It's okay to make mistakes. It's okay to fail. Don't even call it failure. It's just continuous improvement.

12:17 - What I noticed a lot with the teams that I work with on team development is how little time they have ever spent getting to know each other, or reflecting on how they work. Or sharing their values and what they're bringing to work with them.

26:22 -  I'm a big, big proponent of getting to know yourself. Some people know themselves really well, but most of us need multiple inputs of feedback, and how other people see us as well.
