Kevin Hamm, People Leadership and Business Development
“Leaders won’t give in. They employ staggering courage in the face of adversity. They just won’t quit on the things they believe in. Their passion evokes a will that drives them to action and triumph. And triumph comes in many different forms. It doesn’t necessarily mean “winning it all”, sometimes it means conquering massive obstacles. On this journey, leaders get creative using imagination and vision to see where others may not see.”
