ON REIMAGINING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT:
“I am most proud of co-creating Stok’s self-managed organizational design - like nature would - to scale and adapt to a constantly changing environment. Leveraging that experience, I advise Stok’s partners in designing data-driven organizations which allow workers of the knowledge economy to achieve their flow state and peak productivity by tapping into what truly motivates them: autonomy, mastery, and purpose.”
ON A FUTURE THEY WANT TO LIVE IN:
“I envision a society built on sound economics where businesses create the conditions conducive to life, the burden of proof and the social and environmental costs are carried by their producers, and natural and human capital are properly valued in order to sustain future generations to come.”
