  • Intercom Design

  • Secret Wars

    I talked about about the concept of “Secret Wars”: the things we’re thinking, but can’t say; the arguments we should be having, but don’t; the screams that stay locked up in our throats.

  • How to Be New

    I emphasized the need for everyone to be as open and direct as possible until being straightforward becomes a part of the organizational culture. Always “say the thing!”
