Barry Prizant’s article, “On Shoulders of Giants” (August 2014), struck a very personal chord. In this 21st year of my professional career, I distinctly remember Dr. Prizant telling me that “there are no experts in the field, only those who have gone before” and have more experience. He stressed the critical value of learning from each client and family, and from the variety of professionals with whom we interact. His words continually permeate.
So, to Barry Prizant and my own giants—Jeanne Wilcox, Belinda Russell and Kathy Glover—I am forever grateful for every shred of wisdom and patience you dispensed toward me. If I enjoy any success, it is because of your consistent behaviors of leadership.
