What is the most important piece of advice you give students to help them succeed?
The best leaders understand the importance of ethical behavior in the workplace, at home, and in the community. They set the right example consistently in all situations. The greatest leaders challenge themselves with an eclectic board, not a board of “yes” votes. I integrate this advice into the classroom with positive and negative examples of trust building that result in both moral and economic value.
