    Ms. Wasley,

    Thank you for this wonderful article with powerful ready-to-tweet takeaways.

    I would have liked it better if the article had cherished the final point/tweet even more than it does. Great talent is a treasure. It needs to be treated like a treasure, that is, it needs to be held in a safe space. Exceptional leadership would contain the exceptional talent in both senses. Something like: “1) We love you and we support you and 2) we’re counting on you to support the team, and if you don’t there will be consequences. Even for you.”

    Finally, your last sentence is a booming home run (pardon the switch in games), way, way, way out of the park.

    Thanks again,
