“The most important lesson I have learned, and continue to be reminded of, is to stay open to new ideas and different ways of solving problems. The world is changing at such a rapid rate; you must constantly evolve your thinking. Be on the lookout for ideas that could give you advantage but also for competitive moves that could make your business model obsolete. Winning in a fast-moving marketplace requires commitment to ongoing, fast-cycle learning and courage to change as marketplace or competitive moves dictate.” said Henretta.
