Being part of our TCG leadership in the pass was always put the best forward. Having the experiences sitting at the leadership table had been the horizon where we come from and where we are going collectively. To the people who never served on this level of Governance make it an opportunity to do it and voice yourself in a positive manner. Manner is what makes the difference. So you can be part of the difference. It is in all of us...just speak gently and it makes the difference. “If you want the honey don’t kick the bees nest”....when you listen to the smallest conversations it can be the best lesson you will ever learn...medu ...#leadershipisaboutlearning #beingthebestfortahltan
