(from the publisher)
"I recently read Finding a Place to Stand: Developing Self-Reflective Institutions, Leaders, and Citizens, by Edward R. Shapiro, MD. ​​With so much worth sharing, I reached out to Dr. Shapiro, who kindly agreed to let me interview him. This is the second of two posts."
  • When we focus on how we are right, we immediately shut down possibilities to learn and listen.
