Guileless

Regardless of the years of experience, the degree of gravitas, the number of deals considered and consummated, companies built and ideas realized, a powerful leader is one who can sit with childlike patience and make every inquiry that comes to mind to satisfy their deep need to fully understand something new.

This is not the gift of manipulation, that ceremonial show of restraint that is ultimately and easily broken with the pounce of telling and teaching. This is the commitment to a professionalism that is marked by unmatched sincerity and the sure belief that there is no such thing as a stupid question.
