Leading the charge. Muriel “Mickie” Siebert, the first woman on the New York Stock Exchange, was still leading the way two decades after she became a member in 1967. Denied a ladies’ room, she offered to have a portable toilet brought in, and the guys backed off. “When I see a challenge,” Siebert said, “I put my head down and charge.”

No limits. A healthy culture believes in options. As aviator Brooke Knapp said, “There are two kinds of people: those who are paralyzed by fear, and those who are afraid but go ahead anyway. Life isn’t about limitation, it’s about options.”

Boil it down. Leaders have to be concise, which takes more time than being verbose. As President Wilson once said: “If I am to speak 10 minutes, I need a week for preparation. If 15 minutes, three days. If half an hour, two days. If an hour, I’m ready now.”
