“Leaders are teachers.
To become a great teacher, you must first become a great student!”

Jim Riviello, Chief Energy Officer, LXU

We believe leaders are paid to get results because results matter. To achieve results, a leader has to master leading others–being able to authentically communicate and influence others to act.

We believe leaders are role models. In order to effectively lead others, you must first learn to lead yourself.
