Fellow, The Martin Prosperity Institute. Author, 11 Rules For Creating Value In The #SocialEra and The New How: Creating Business Solutions Through Collaborative Strategy.

Believes most of us talk to ourselves in ways we’d never talk to anyone else and that talking to yourself like you’re worthless is not helpful.

Thinks sitting has become the smoking of our generation.

“Money, while necessary, motivates neither the best people, nor the best in people. Purpose does.”

Believes we should stop using the language of marketing to talk about meaning and remember that your brand follows your work.

Thinks relationships are to the social era what efficiency was to the industrial era.

“There are the things that we do. There are the things that we care about. And then there is the story we tell about it.”

Believes productivity is a measure of how well to achieve a goal, so you’ve got to get really clear on what you most want and why.

Thinks today’s successful leaders don’t operate like the 800 pound gorillas of yesterday – instead they operate like a herd of 800 gazelles moving together.
