LEARNINGS

Investors, the C-Suite and owners invest in growth. Returns earned faster are the
best short and long-term strategies..and, are the safer bets.
Entire organizations must get behind a growth mandate. The downside risk of the
status quo is worse than the risk of experimentation.
Creativity + Candor + Expertise + Ingenuity + Gut: the toughest challenges show up
unannounced and are often manufactured internally.
Solving for them is as difficult as creating them.
Culture is what people, not companies, build when no one is looking.
