The Missing Link to Innovation and Inclusion

The Innovator’s Empathy


“When I have my interview with God at the end of my life, he’s not going to ask how high I went in anybody’s org chart or how much money I left behind in the bank…..I realized that the way God will measure my life is the individual people whose lives I blessed….It’s actually really important that you succeed at what you’re succeeding at, but that isn’t going to be the measure of your life. God doesn’t count. He doesn’t aggregate [data]. He’s just going to assess you on the basis of how well you helped other people be better people.”
-Professor Clayton Christensen (TEDx Boston 2012), Harvard Business School Professor and best-selling author (e.g., The Innovator’s Dilemma, The Innovator’s Solution, The Innovator’s Prescription)

    Great to hear from you Steve! You were a model of empathy and source of inspiration in McKinsey Chicago for me and so many others.
