ABOUT SEASON SEVEN:
In this season, we’re going to be talking about the timing of leadership, which is all about answering the question of when. Time is a precious resource, a nonrenewable resource.

- “If you are always thinking about time, you are likely missing things around you…”
- How do you deal with people are just pushing to “make the decision already, let’s just make the call….” Decisiveness and good decision-making are actually two different things…
