What are good quotes from Imagine It Forward?

“traditional business strategy too often does not bother to create a story or narrative about its actions for its employees and the world to gather around. For the strategy to become reality, people need to see themselves in the story and then take action to make the story happen.”

“Giving ourselves permission allows us to hack rules that don’t make sense rather than follow them; to take ideas and stories apart that aren’t working; to go around the gatekeepers, bullies, and bureaucratic bottlenecks that would stifle change. Developing a habit of self-permission will instill in you the belief that you are in control of your career and your life, regardless of what is going on around you.”

“A spark is a person, usually an outsider, whose unique perspective—the more different, the better—challenges the team to think differently.”

― Beth Comstock with Thal Raz, Imagine It Forward
