John Allison, Leadership and Values

“We happen to believe in the fundamental concept of individual rights, and one of those is property rights. If that is jeopardized, our entire financial system is also in jeopardy.”– John Allison

I met John Allison, former chairman and CEO of BB&T (bank), a couple years ago and heard this speech.  I was reminded of the speech few days ago and thought I would share it with you.  Values impact how we view the world, how we work with others, and, ultimately, the possible successes we can achieve in life.

Yes, it is an hour.  Yes, it is well worth your time.
