"When it comes to discussing substantive public policy issues, there’s nobody in the New Jersey media who offers a more careful, thorough and unbiased view." - NJ Globe
“The host of State of Affairs on NJTV remains one of the most keyed-in policy minds in the state. A former member of the General Assembly, Adubato usually has more policy footing than his routinely well-prepared guests. The semi-retirement of veteran Michael Aron puts Adubato even more in-demand as a veteran television journalist of real substance.” - Insider NJ

“One of the truest qualities of a leader is the ability to recognize what you don’t know, then to open yourself up to listening, learning, and adapting. What I appreciate most about “Lessons in Leadership” and my firm’s broader partnership with the organization is the range of platforms Steve provides to leaders of every stripe, in every industry and sector throughout the state, to offer their unique insight on business, strategy, and leadership. Given the variety of experience, perspective, and achievement on display, ‘Lessons in Leadership’ is the ideal outlet for both seasoned and up-and-coming leaders to discover something they don’t know – and to listen, learn, and adapt those lessons to the leadership of their own organizations.”

There is much discussion and debate about how much a leader (whether a CEO or not) needs to be involved in the day to day operations of his or her organization. Being an engaged leader is essential, but that is not the same as being involved in virtually every minute detail of organizational life to the extent where the leader is driving, pushing or directing so much of what is going on that members of the team simply wait to be told what to do.
