“Our belief is that the individual becomes really the catalyst for change; that we as individuals will see the power of pull and will start to use it in our own lives, personal and professional. And then, as a result of our learning and actions, we’re going to become catalysts for change within the institutions”

  1. Thanks so much for posting these videos – I’d love to receive feedback from anyone who sees them.

    Just two minor corrections – the research center that I run is the Center for the Edge and I am not a former consultant – I continue to consult with senior executives around the world as part of Deloitte while also running the research center.
