"Others inspire us,
information feeds us,
practice improves our performance,
but we need quiet time to figure things out,
to emerge with new discoveries, to unearth original answers."
— Ester Buchholz
And time spent in The Leadership hub reading, reviving and reflecting, is part of that quiet time. But, don't forget to contribute, too. You need to test those 'original answers' with other people to reality check them. That's what The Hub is for, too.
"Everybody can be great because anybody can serve...
You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.
And you can be that servant."
- Dr. Martin Luther King

“Service to others
is the rent you pay
for your room here on earth.”
- Muhammad Ali

If you voted in the World Leadership Gurus Top 30, the Hub's founder, Phil Dourado, came 14th this year (2012), up three places from 17th last year. The organisers say it is "because of the originality and impact of your work" that Phil was put in the Top 30 in the first place. And that means this Hub and the award-winning corporate versions we run for large companies. For more on how a private corporate version of The Hub works, email: email@example.com
