“We need leaders now more than ever, which was what drew me into this position,” Matt explained, and he added the intent of Leadership Development Academy 101 is – not only to develop future leaders – but to give those currently in leadership roles support to keep them healthy and excelling.
“It’s about being excellent where you are more than anything else. People always ask me ‘What do you need to do to get to the next step?’ My number one thing is, be excellent where you are. You’ll be recognized.”
