Key Quotes:

  • “Sometimes we have no idea. You’re in the right place, the right time, something happens. And, we don’t even recognize the moment when it’s happening. But, there’s power in when somebody actually takes the time to design it… to create it in someone’s life.” – Clint Pulver
  • “When a manager became a mentor in somebody’s life, where they advocated as much as they developed, when somebody looked at that person and said…Because of you, my life’s going to be a better story.” – Clint Pulver
  • “No significant loyalty will ever happen without significant connection. Mentorship is priceless in this because mentorship is not leadership. It’s also not management. Mentorship cannot be given, it’s not a title. Nobody gives a title to a mentor. You’re not like, you got this promotion. Now you’re a mentor. It doesn’t happen that way. Mentorship has to be earned, and it’s earned by who you are.” – Clint Pulver
