Oct. 14, 2015 - By: Jeffrey Hayzlett
“The key to thinking big and acting bigger for any person and any company of any age or size is to own who and what you are because you can. Do you believe you can? That’s the first of all the essential questions you must ask to think big and act bigger and own who you are and everything you do.”
Why Grit is The New Black
Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Linda Kaplan Thaler & Robin Koval

Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Bonnie Marcus

Thinking Our Way Out of the Darkness
Sept. 16, 2015 - By: Angie McArthur & Dr. Dawna Markova

We Are All a Bit Delusional
Aug. 5, 2015 - By: Dan Gregory & Kieran Flanagan
“Unfortunately, most of us can’t be above average—the math just doesn’t work. Now clearly, some people are aware that we’re below average in some areas of our lives, even believe that we’re below average on the whole, but overwhelmingly, human beings are a little delusional when it comes to their conception of their own competence.”
Social Drive: How You Can Create Positive Change, Right Now
Aug. 5, 2015 - By: Paul Shoemaker
“I don’t want to do anything to deter anyone from believing there is power in the group, in the network. I’m not a fan of false, egotistical, self-centered ‘heroes’ either. But I do believe that the positive social impact one person can create has never been clearer, stronger, and more urgent.”

Aug. 5, 2015 - By: Becky Lynn Smith
“In spite of the millions of dollars now being spent by companies on improving engagement, and the hoards of consultants who have ‘the answer,’ 70% of people in the workplace in the United States are either not engaged, or are actively disengaged. There has to be a better way. I believe there is a better way.”

It is possible to have it all, not just in theory, but in how we live our day-to-day lives.”
