The Company Leader is a personally curated blog. You will work with one primary editor, but your work may be subjected to peer review prior to publication. This is especially true if the source material is outside the expertise of the editor. Editing is a personal process and we recognize this. We will remain respectful toward you and your writing, but will challenge you to obtain the best possible writing and output. Remain humble, patient, and flexible. Writing is an iterative process. Thank you for considering us in your writing journey.
