(31:42 at normal) This is a master class in how and why we create and what perspective creating in different ways can provide. This discussion with three amazing creators will inspire you to think about how you express yourself, and also hopefully how you create those opportunities for those you lead and support. Don't be surprised if after watching this you want to go out and have a lovely walk to process it a bit more.

Don’t forget knowledge and method foundations in our Curated Resources, the evergreen (but periodically and recently refreshed) resources change leaders need. Give yourself the gift of feeling grounded in your knowledge and access to your communities of shared knowledge.
