Much of what I've learned about leadership has come from mistakes I've made," Kelly admits. "Everything else has come from the people I've worked with. And one of the things I've learned is that it doesn't matter if you're the CEO of a Fortune 100 company, a school principle, a rabbi, or the manager of a fast food restaurant: Great leaders leverage the power of purpose, participation, place, play, productivity, and possibility."
