Georgescu's vision rests on five crucial principles, which together can unleash a tremendous untapped reservoir of energy within our organizations, and within ourselves: Creative capacity and the brand integrity that grows from it are an organization's most important assets. Enlightened leaders inspire creativity through understanding, cooperation, and respect.

Great companies don't happen without leaders who have transformed themselves .
