"I have continued to use the long-term planning tools that were introduced to my skeptical younger self in Hawaii, and remain close with APLP colleagues through social networks, participation at EWC conferences and ‘couch-surfing’ the Asia Pacific with former classmates. Everyone has his or her own leadership style. Forget about leadership ‘techniques’ and spend more time listening to yourself and to others.”
