Today’s advice comes from a New York Times interview with UniWorld Group CEO Byron Lewis Sr:“I’m not as interested in M.B.A.’s as I might have been. I respect people for what they bring. I’m looking for people who have common sense, common decency. But I’m primarily looking for people who have uncommon sense because that’s where genius comes from. Uncommon sense is what Bill Gates and certain people have.”
Lewis says he doesn’t believe in formulas, but integrity. He says people with integrity feel not only loyal to the company, but to an idea.
“Change can only come from people who feel free and have the courage to stand up for what they believe.”
