Quote: “If we’re training these leaders and equipping them with the skills to really be collaborative problem solvers, to think deeply on the situation before acting, then that’s going to give you a higher probability of them pulling a plan together that’s going to work for the parties involved and come to a successful resolution.”  Jason Cochran
