Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: Leadership is so important and while many believe that it's lacking I think that it's really understanding leadership and knowing that you have the power to be a leader and redirect the business, world or anything you decide to where you want them to be. Alan touched on this and the resilience, turbulence, and how change has impacted everything.
