HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE A MAVERICK?
“There are different kinds of people in business. It’s not just business, it’s any kind of organisation in society. You could talk about this in civil society. You could talk about this in politics. You could talk about this in business and academia. So structures, structures in general. You have the disruptors, you have people who start up things and then get bored after 5 or 10 years. You have people who build things that are sort of half-hatched and build them to greatness, and you have people who are just good at keeping an altitude and the mavericks are the people who break the rules, the people who don’t do as they are told, the people who look at something and just instinctively feel I can do this better.”
WHY RICK WAS INTERVIEWED
Rick was recommended to me by Lee Feldman of the THNK School of Creative Leadership. He knew the project having been interviewed. I researched Rick and knew immediately he was a maverick. Rick is rounded, driven, aware of his own skills, brave and contributing to make a difference.
