Former IBM Chairman and CEO Ginny Rometty on the challenge of changing a culture:
“When opportunities arise to innovate, change to how can be overlooked in favor of focusing on WHAT. In fact, it is not enough to simply tell people to deliver a different result. We need to create a new way of working, give people permission to innovate, and create an environment that encourages and rewards new behaviors and skills — all at scale.

Fortune 50 technology and business leader Daphne Jones explain why purpose is a combination of love and capability:
“Purpose is the combination of one’s passion and capability. Purpose is the main reason you exist. The simple way I define a person’s purpose is to understand what the person loves and has a natural inclination or ability to do. If you have a passion for a particular vocation, but don’t have the natural instinct or ability to learn and do it well, that’s not your goal. If you have the capability but you are not interested in exploiting it or using it to a meaningful purpose, that is not your purpose. Only when these two aspects are present at the same time will your purpose be fulfilled.”
