Favorite quote from this episode:

"I think we often confuse taking care of people and offering them excessive affirmation. Taking care of people means 'I want to see you grow. I want to see you build your self-confidence. I want to see you learn accountability, responsibility. I’m gonna give you opportunities to fall and try again, and fall and try again.' "

—Simon Sinek
