A recent graduation speech at Northwestern University by Gov. Pritzker caught my eye.
And it wasn’t because he was using funny lines from the hit TV sitcom “The Office”, blissfully unaware that the lead actor from the show was in the audience for his own daughter’s graduation (ya, true story!).
He made some lovely points, but the takeaway for me was on the importance of kindness.
Over my many years in politics and business, I have found one thing to be universally true: the kindest person in the room is often the smartest.
