What is the biggest challenge that you and other leaders are facing today? What can be learned through these experiences and adversities?
I think one of the biggest challenge is finding passionate people. We live in a society with so much data and so much information that people are just becoming so paralyzed. They're not passionate about anything, and they're living in a constant fog-filled state of existence. They don't get anything done. It's amazing, you walk down the street, how many people are staring at their iPhones, or they're talking on the phone. In reality, what is that doing? It's not doing much. You can only check Facebook so much. You can only check your email so much. But, that's what our society has come to; staring at your palm. Your palm doesn't really have all the answers.
I think one of the keys is to get more people engaged and energized. How do you make the work that they're doing more exciting? How do you incent them? But, I don't think the way we do, is like the way it's always been done. I think we're getting closer and closer through time and through technology.
