How do you generate insights to re-imagine the boundaries of your business? You immerse yourself in new experiences that stimulate your senses and challenges your perceptions. Here is an inspirational example and photo by Curtis Michelson https://www.linkedin.com/in/curtismichelson/ during his recent trip to Mexico City:
"We found these handmade slingshots at a cute tucked away artisan market called "Mercado De Artesanias de la Ciudadela". The energy is good here. For Americans looking to have their senses heightened and their cultural and cognitive biases thoroughly disrupted, take a trip and make some excursions on foot. Meet the real people. They seem to be fully awake to their potential as a dynamic force on the world stage. Mexico is alive and well, and in some respects out innovating its northern neighbors. Slingshotters take note!"

The Billionaire Week for Women, hosted by the incomparable Ingrid Vanderveldt, was every bit as inspiring, thought-provoking, and fun as imagined. The great mix of attendees, topics, and activities was the perfect power boost for achieving great things around the topics of gender harmony, inclusion, and diversity.
This is a photo from the event with Jill Ellis, whom I was especially excited to meet given my lifelong passion for European football. Jill was the coach of the US women's national soccer team that successfully repeated as World Cup Champions at the memorable tournament in France last summer. In Austin, Jill shared poignant lessons in leadership and perseverance from her personal journey.

It was really fun returning to the INSEAD campus for my class reunion and to stop by the Blue Ocean Strategy Institute.
