Video Highlight:

“…We’ve got to be able to understand as a leader the different ways people receive information, and the different ways that they then perhaps communicate and behave. That’s the first thing. Can you style flex? There’s a lot of different ways to do this. I’m not going to get super deep into this, but I love personality tests – not as a gauge to judge people, but more to assess how people can receive you best. Asking those kinds of questions, style flexing.”
