Creating the culture you want, being the leader you need to be and building a team to accomplish the vision all starts with Touching the Line. Touching the line is a term in sports when an athlete is running a familiar drill. You run to a line and you have to bend down and touch it. Few touch it as most just get close. In culture and leadership....you have to touch the line. There are no shortcuts. In leadership having hard conversations, making decisions that is best for the team and hiring the right people and caring for them...you have to touch the line.
