When I was growing up, my leadership values were instilled in me by my parents, who never cared much about achievement—they loved me for who I was, not what I could do. But I found in entering the workplace that this wasn’t typical, which made me feel really discouraged. I’ve always had a high risk tolerance, so I took a leap of faith, and after many years of failure, Alignment Leadership was born. I didn’t want anyone to ever feel like I had, like work is a burden and a waste of precious time. I want to serve and love people toward their fulfillment based on who they are at their core. And it turns out, this template of love works everywhere.
