Matthew Smolik commented on Ryan Leslie's blog post Are you a Boss or a Leader?
"A leader I've kept this picture posted right next to my desk for the  past 6 months. It reminds me to not ask any of my team to do things that I wouldn't do or say. It's easy to be an armchair quarterback but in order to…"

"Matt, great question, tough one. I think I would be the airbag in my wife's car, so if my wife and/or kids ever got in a wreck (God forbid), I could be there to take the hit and protect them... Todd Vowell"

"So true Ryan, it's now required for SFE that GM dealers have a reputation management tool in place. Of course Cobalt has a solution and Digital Air Strike and Naked Lime are approved vendors. Great article and Have a great New Year"

"Matt, Great post and a superbly thought out analogy. I don't golf well either, but some of my best shots were from what looked to be a terrible lie. Sometimes just taking a swing will net results, right? Great Post!"
