Congratulations to Barbara Rentler, CEO of Ross Stores on making the recently released Forbes list of America’s Most Innovative Leaders. Barbara joins 99 men to round out the 100-person list. Wait a minute. Are you kidding me? You mean to tell me that of all the most innovative leaders in the country, Forbes could only find one woman to meet their criteria?
Many companies have core values. You can often find them on the company’s website and the CEO most likely knows them. However, they’re a waste of time if they’re not ALIVE in the organization. Even if every member of your organization can recite them, that’s not enough. Core values that are alive in an organization are transformational.
