From Me, Too to Black Lives Matter, cultural changes worldwide prove that diversity and inclusion are critical for every organization. Roger Madison, Jr., shares his experiences as an African American in the tech industry – both as a trailblazer within IBM, and what he learned as a top sales executive in South Africa as he helped establish Big Blue’s presence there post-apartheid.

Telling your story is only the beginning.  The old adage “show, don’t tell” is true:  today’s most successful companies and leaders are StoryDoers, not storytellers. These leaders clearly define a higher purpose that frames their ultimate ambition and desired contribution to the world.  Every action they – and their company - take serves to achieve this goal. Ty Montague, CEO of co:, reveals what makes someone a Storydoer, why they are better leaders, and tools you can use to become a Storydoer.

During this edition of Innovating Leadership Co-Creating Our Future, Maureen speaks with Greg Moran and Terri Bettinger on the topic of aspirations over the courses of their leadership careers. Aspiration has the power to expand our limits and potential by motivating us to test our capabilities and competencies further and in new ways.
