A sense of purpose. Too many organizations focus on layers of program-driven rhetoric that creates an artifice of purpose. Keeping the reason for being simple enables greater focus, not matter how severe the definition of purpose may be.What keeps you up at night?

Nature is amazing at dawn. "It never stops and so should I..."How is your work cross-cultural?
I work in Europe. I have little choice but to make sure that all I do is respectful of cultural nuance. Interactions with people is a key component, you must show in your work and your actions that you respect the cultural need and simultaneously be understood and a person of new ideas. Therein lies a desire to create opportunities that transcend as many cultural hurdles as possible.
