This is a very personal blog post.

Participating in the Global Leadership Summit is always an intensely personal undertaking. As member of the team, certainly I am looking at things from a broader, strategic and operational perspective.

But at its heart, the Summit continues to be a place where my own leadership is stretched and forged.

This year, there were 14 quotes in particular that struck me in a profound way.
