We know that, even situationally, people will often live up — or down — to our expectations of them. But why? We’ll look at that in our Thought of the Day. And later in our interview segment, long-time leader and personal development authority, Steve Keating, shares with us the benefit and how-to of leading with high expectations. That and more on today’s show.
