My Personal Manifesto

  • Purpose is the engine of our work and our motivation
  • Realizing the human potential of our people, customers and community is the heart of great performance
  • We must embrace the chaos of the networked, mobile, empowered, agile, and disruptive
  • Movements, where anyone can lead and contribute, will deliver the changes & innovations required in our organizations, systems, and society
  • The complexity of the path ahead requires us to understand our role in the widest possible social context and to engage the best of our human capabilities – we will succeed by being more human & more social, not less.
