What you don't do today, you won't do tomorrow. You don't need to work at a firm to hire your own consultant. No matter what you're trying to learn or who you're trying to become, you can hire someone for that purpose. This podcast comprises what I'm learning from the consultants I hire and from the leaders I meet with around the world—as well as from the people in my community.
