There are three elements to achieving goals, and they are not what you think. We can have the best intentions, support networks, and more than enough resources – and still fail. Listen in to Jess Dewell talk with Iva Ignjatovic and Scott Scowcroft discuss THE THREE things you need to change outcomes because Hope Without Action = More of the Same.
