Engaged, we embrace conversation, rather than flee, dominate, or shut it down.
Courageous, we address — rather than avoid — difficult topics.
Humble, we check on whether we are understanding and communicating well.
Open, we offer authentic perspectives with care and candor.

In 2002, after a successful career at Disney and the National Basketball Association, John left the private sector to found the organization he first envisioned in business school: Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT).
