I’m a storyteller dedicated to discovering the people from all walks of life who are creating the future based on the their original ideas and bold ideals.
I’m passionate about the great outdoors (climbing its heights, diving into its depths, and doing my part to make sure we all keep breathing in its fresh air), health and good food (sweaty yoga, digging in the dirt, experimenting in the kitchen), reading between the lines, and learning something new every day.
I always try to follow the advice Don Juan gave Carlos Castaneda: to do everything as if it were the only thing in the world that mattered, while all the time knowing that it doesn’t matter at all.
Here at the MIX we believe that great ideas can come from anybody and anywhere in the world—as long as you're open and clever enough to ask for them. We're not sure how clever we are, but we're asking. We want YOUR great ideas when it comes to reinventing management. That's what the MIX is designed for—and that's why we've created the world's first Management Innovation Prize: the M-Prize .
Do you want to play a role in improving the technology of human accomplishment? If you have a real-world case of management innovation (a STORY) or a bold idea (a HACK) for overturning management-as-usual, here's your chance to make a difference and get recognized for it. The rules of the M-Prize are simple:
Why can’t we build organizations that are as resilient, inventive and inspiring as the people who work in them? That’s the question that lies at the heart of the Management Innovation eXchange (MIX). the world’s first open innovation project aimed at reinventing management.
The MIX is designed as a collaborative platform where a diverse collection of celebrated thought leaders and adventuresome practitioners can share their bold ideas and pioneering practices for the future of leadership, management and organization. In other words, the MIX was designed for YOU!
On the MIX, you’ll discover instructive stories of management innovation from a wide range of organizations (such as Pfizer , Microsoft , Topcoder , IDEO , and even a pioneering mega-church). You’ll also find inspired advice from some of the world’s most progressive business thinkers, including Bill George (former CEO of Medtronic and Harvard professor), John Mackey (CEO of Whole Foods), Terri Kelly (CEO of W.L. Gore & Associates), and many more.
More importantly, the MIX gives YOU the opportunity to help shape the future of management. There are lots of ways to get involved:...
