Are You Making a Difference?

Does it matter if we make a difference? Does it matter if we know we’re making a difference? Todd Averett and I explore the deep aspects of how to purposefully have a positive impact on others. When we stumble, when we fail, those are some of the best lessons. Good leaders see these as opportunities to make a long-lasting difference.
