 “When aligning on a strategy with a client, no question is more crucial than ‘why?’ Every other piece of the strategy stems from that foundation.” 

“Beyond being detail-oriented, we need more strategists to be context-oriented. Whether it’s managing internal stakeholders or sharing a new side of a brand, we do our best work when we can be true thought-partners with our clients.” 

 “True leadership is not about delegating work. It’s about building a team of thoughtful, curious and compassionate teammates who can work together and bring their best selves to any challenge.”
