Success Secrets - John Chambers Video

John Chambers gives a "tour de force" lecture at M.I.T . For all intents and purposes a master class in running a high-tech company. It’s all here: how he innovates (way in advance, at times of transition), how he measures (he measure everything, including teamwork), how (and why) he partners, even where on your person your company goals are stored (on your belt, apparently). Many of his success factors are equally important for personal success:

Measurement: if you don’t measure (weight, cholesterol, net worth, exercise reps, etc) you have no idea of how you are doing.

Looking ahead: As the saying goes, “failure to plan is planning to fail”.

Partnering: Very little productive work in today’s world is accomplished alone.

This video is compelling, energizing, and a true gift from this magnificent CEO at the top of his form.
