"Waldorf taught me how to think for myself, to be accountable for my actions, to be a good listener, and to be sensitive to the needs of others. It also helped me to focus on the underlying importance of beliefs, and values that are the foundation of good leadership."
- Kenneth Chenault, American Express Company Vice Chairman
