Make It Personal and Make It Work

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook

Connecting community and making information accessible are the two overarching threads that run through some of the most successful companies of the last century, points out Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. Here, she cites her own personal career path that began in the non-profit sector and evolved into technology, and numerous examples of companies with purpose, drive, and scalable vision, including Google, Apple, Nike, and Starbucks. She speaks of these as case studies to drive home her point on effective leadership containing a vision that will scale over time, place, and product line.
