My family is awesome. If someone would have described them to me when I was 20, no way I would have believed it. The adventures have been awesome; each one of them has a special way about them, important to me is that they are inspired to make a contribution, to follow what they love and as I often tell them, “don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t do.”
As for me? I find I approach most things by being creative but realistic, enthusiastic but disciplined and optimistic about improvement or finding a solution to any problem.
My experience and results come from leading startups. This could be a corporate startup, recovery of an ailing business or a new direction a current company wants to go.
I value personal relationships. I always try to be authentic and genuinely care about the people around me, involve them in decision making, develop their skills with mine, and provide feedback to reinforce and drive improvements.
I am in a constant discussion with myself about knowing the possibilities, what could be done, and then taking the time to identify what should be done. I see more interesting things and meet more interesting people when I slow down.
