"There is great power in hope. With great hope, may our leadership work together raise our consciousness, amplify our abilities to support growth in students and adults in our care, and encourage and strengthen us to step forward courageously in leading for adult development. May it also help us to be more compassionate by deepening our understanding of how to support adult growth. May it enable us to listen differently and to lead by listening..." - Adapted from Leading Adult Learning (Drago-Severson, 2009)
