March Madness means more than basketball when you work at Strategic America. March is also the time when our longtime client, Lennox Industries, host Lennox LIVE learning conferences in multiple cities across America. SA attends every Lennox LIVE event, which in 2018, will take us to Phoenix, AZ; Dallas, TX; Orlando, FL; and Mashantucket, CT.

One area that really stuck with me was her thoughts on leadership, and how everyone is a leader.
