The difference between success and failure is simply the talent and the culture within their walls. It’s my job to build and nurture a culture that allows our people to perform at their best, all of the time. I come to work every day because I haven’t finished that job yet.

The best businesses are the ones where the culture allows them to grow through their successes and their failures, through their mistakes and their accomplishments.

People succeed when they work in a culture where they are given the space and support to find their own solutions. Where failure is seen as a prerequisite of success. These are the teams that truly break through and achieve the apparently impossible.

That’s meaningful to me.
