Questions and AnswersWhat will you say about the work you've done at the end of your career?
what a ride!Where do you go for inspiration?
mountain climbing, long and strenuous hikes and long and slow 10+ mile runs in central park.How do you build resilience into your work & company?
i stay even keeled and don't get overly excited either way with the ebb and flow of business. work is often times crazy and irrational...i don't allow myself to get caught up in the lunacy of it all.What keeps you up at night?
irrational and illogical thinking that is usually politically motivated to preserve the status quo.What gets you up in the morning?
the enjoyment and satisfaction that i get from work. i'm truly blessed to love the work that i do even after 30 years of doing it.How is your work cross-cultural?
at the end of the day i believe that work is all about people, relationships and interactions. the truly successful businesses have figured out that hiring and retaining the best people and creating an interesting and innovative business culture is the key to success. those that haven't figured it out probably keep me and many open colony members gainfully employed!
i essentially bring order to chaos. i work with large, complex businesses looking to fundamentally transform the way they do things and small start-ups that need basic business architecture to launch and scale.
