Up here the front row of the third mezzanine of Radio City Music Hall, world leaders speaking on the stage look like miniatures. On the video screen behind them, they appear larger than life.
I can’t help but notice the lovely irony that to us invited to blog about this event, the video version is easier to see and identify with.
rWe stepped out of the online culture to listen in here and report back. We’re tweeting, writing, and making opinions … listening to statements from a world of experience.
Most profoundly I see some connections that only we online might see. From Bill George challenged us Who’s going to step up today and make a difference?
Bill Conaty spoke of CEOs who need to support truth and candor. Patrick Lencioni said, We spend a lot of time making an organization smart, but not a lot of time making them health.
and Kevin Roberts brought it home with these statements …
reason leads to conclusions
emotion leads to action
inform … inspire …
do one thing
The chance to listen to outstanding people speaking about what they know has been huge and hugely thrilling. I’m sure many will detail the report of what was said.
What I notice is how, when we meet at the core of the matter we’re not so different online or off.
