Judith E. Glaser
Founder & CEO
“WE-centric leaders realize that ‘WE’ is the power that fuels corporate growth. They know they don’t need to know all the answers, and they also know that in the face of unprecedented change, inclusive behaviors radically shift the power dynamics toward partnering and positively influencing productivity and quality in a company.”
