VIDEO: You don’t know who you are in a crisis until you’re in it.

It’s not how we react in the easy times. It’s who we are through the hard ones. I was asked to give a talk to my biggest audience at that time. It was the opening keynote for a Fortune 100 financial institution - the talk that would set the vibe for the rest of their...
