10:19 – Instead of judging or making assumptions, approach situations with curiosity, patience, and grace

33:16 – As a leader, you can only make the invitation—it’s up to others to decide what to do with that invitation

34:59 – With the correct leader, your team will step into brilliance most of the time

35:16 – If you have drama in your workplace, it’s because people are venting instead of self-reflecting
