HR Huntsman – Founder of Leaders Edge
The kind of leadership that we train has to have some compassion
around it. It has to also have an energy for proactivity. There has to be
a strength and a vision of the future. We have to be able to see where
we’re going and move people in that direction.

He began a non-profit organization from scratch when I was twenty-eight and over the course of twenty-two years, with a lot of beautiful people, we grew it into a profound, life changing organization.
