The Humphreys listen to Guest Lecturer Steve Capus, former president of NBC News.

I think my most memorable reflection happened during Steven’s Fitzcaraldo movie presentation. He asked “Do leaders lead for others or for their own self-interest?” I really thought about that for a while, and came to the conclusion that most leaders start leading out of self-interest because they see a problem that isn’t being addressed at all (or at least not well enough). But I don’t think self-interest is a bad thing. Many great leaders started leading because they had a personal stake in an issue, but continued because they recognized that what they were doing was bigger than just them. Samantha Davis

“Life is beta.” – Dan Gillmor.
”Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat the luckier you get” – Steven Kapoloma. Darby Fitzgerald

“Keep in mind that in the end, the choice you make, makes you.” Caitlin Cruz

Great leaders surround themselves with people smarter than they are. (From Dan Gillmor’s guest lecture) Sophia Mayberry
