What do you call a leader like Theresa? Who comes in with impressive credentials and proves that it’s the person behind the degrees that shines? Yes, she has crazy skills, but it was her brilliance, warmth, humor, creativity and especially openness that made my time working with her continue to glow. Honestly, how often does a boss, “get” you in a way that not only brings out your best, but leaves you laughing?
