Interview with GA Rep. Glanton & GA Rep. Brockway on Leading Across the Aisle
Leaders must have the skills and abilities to reach those who think like them and those from opposing perspectives.

2 Things From This Episode
1. Differences Are Healthy
It’s not always the large issues but the little things that a leader must work through. If we agree on everything, all the time, then one of us is not necessary. Leading teams with a wide range of perspectives means you seek to understand them first. When people feel heard they are more willing to accept your differences.
