Bryant H. McGill

I have high expectations of myself. I always have, always will. That will never waver. I always believe in my talent - always have.
Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It's about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter.

William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
