“My bosses never presumed to know better than I did about what I needed in order to do my job.”

That opening line is actually a quote from actress Michelle Williams, in her speech accepting the Emmy for best actress in a limited series or TV movie, for her role as the Broadway dancer and actress Gwen Verdon in FX’s “Fosse/Verdon.”
That quote, and her entire speech, gives us a great description and demonstration of leading in the age of personalization.
