Listen in as Dawn and Mark Shuler discuss the advantages of deliberately surrounding one with those who are different.  Different perspectives, personalities, values, and strengths are crucial for an organization to thrive and, possibly, to survive.  Differences are a key component to innovation, adaptation, and creativity.

Some interesting highlights:

  • Abraham Lincoln’s cabinet
  • Apple’s “break-it” department
  • Gallup’s leadership research on the most successful leaders – and their teams
  • “We’ve always done it that way”
  • “If it ain’t broke, break it”
