He tells stories from the VF campus about how the company encourages employees to "live your brand" and offers motivational employee engagement so that people can do their best work. Javier shares how his FM background and perspective is part of a collaborative approach with other departments where understanding about the impact of decisions on everyone is considered essential in the workplace culture. Mike and Javier talk about the inevitability of the changes taking place in our organizations and how a positive and flexible attitude can help us be successful as we lead our workplaces into the future! The critical topic of "Star Wars versus Star Trek" is addressed head on and both Javier and Mike offer quotes from each of the movie franchises, along with other inspirational quotes about challenging the status quo, getting past our fears, and being a true leader.
