About the Author
Hello! My name is Adam Salter, and I am the founder of The Modest Leader. I have been a team member and Leader in various roles across multiple industries over the past 20+ years.

It is the President of the company and the building Custodian. We all are Leaders, and we all have the responsibility to positively Lead.
