"I have three teen and pre-teen daughters. Every night--sometimes over dinner, sometimes just before they go to bed--I'll ask at least one of them: 'what was the best, the worst, and the funniest thing that happened to you today?' The answers are sometimes surprising and spark some great follow-on conversation. Other times, they're pretty mundane. Every time though, these moments of simple reflection allow us a brief opportunity to pause and to connect. My kids frequently turn these simple questions back onto me, and I find answering them and articulating those answers in approachable terms my kids can relate to a great way to keep a clear-headed perspective on my day, my responsibilities, and my relationships in the office."

--Jason Herthel, president and COO for Montage International, which includes Montage Hotels and Resorts, Pendry Hotels, Montage Residences, and Pendry Residences and golf courses and private clubs with more than $400 million in revenue in 2018
