Key Takeaways:


“Getting everyone to work together and have this shared vision and then ways of working that complement one another, those are some of the bigger challenges.” - Nancy Jonker

“We see the circumstances around us or the people who aren't delivering, the conflicts that are going on. And we don't see how our own mindset, our own actions, our own expectations, actually are fostering those.” - Nancy Jonker

“I hear people say that we need permission to be able to go after our goals, to be able to leave our comfort zone, to try new things, to risk when our tendency is not to take risks. And so, this whole concept of being audacious and being bold defies people's expectations." - Nancy Jonker
