Editor's Note

Let's have fun with pictures. What's the first thing you think about when you look at this photo to the right?

For me, this skydiving photo metaphorically represents the dream teams that I want to always be a part of whether at work or at play. I see a circle of trust, teamwork, coordination and skill. Focus, support, courage, adventure, and diving outside the box. What's their risk management strategy? :)

The new, exclusive articles, video, and podcast featured in this edition will inspire you, motivate you, and remind you to put people first. We're also recommending an awesome free live webinar for you in this edition. Take care of yourself, nourish your people, and manifest your dream teams.

Enjoy this issue!
