Key Quotes:

“As leaders, we spend a lot of time trying to think about it in terms of how do we get people to trust us? Trust can go the other way of letting people know, like, I trust you. In terms of your ability to get this done or work through this problem.” – Patrick Veroneau

“The answers to the problems that you’re facing right now are within the walls of this organization. For the most part, what happens though, is that people don’t get tapped on the shoulder to be asked, how do you think you can solve this?”  – Patrick Veroneau
