Itmeans understanding the demand side of markets to identifyconsumer wants and human needs, and develop better products,services and solutions to meet them.Brave thinking requires mastering the mindset and mechanismsof innovation, and how to generate bold new ideas and makethem happen. It also means developing a broader wisdom andunderstanding of the public and private interface, and how to sustainorganizations in a capitalistic economy firmly grounded in ethicsand law.This is what Kellogg believes.

  20. 20. THE POWER TO INFLUENCEMARKETPLACE THINKINGI know we have the power to influence people and change how they think. It’s all about innovation —that’s what drives me. I want to change the world with the products I launch.I knew my corporate experience and marketing interests would be challenged and expanded at Kellogg.I wanted to improve my cross-functional skills because everything I’d done to that point had been on aconsumer level. I also wanted to understand the entire operational process, consumer-focused psychology,and the creativity involved with bringing a product to market successfully.I had to break out of my comfort zone. I was happy to discover diversity on many levels at Kellogg. Not justcultural diversity, but diversity in people’s thinking. It didn’t take long for me to realize that if I wanted tobe a true leader, I needed to become a stronger team member as well.This isn’t a school where you take classes and just go home. The students and the faculty are a community, andI’ve had the opportunity to work with them to enhance the Kellogg experience. I’ve seen so many students dogreat things here. It pushes me to ask more of myself. “I had to break out of my comfort zone. I was happy tostudent discover diversity on manyclubs ANDorganizations levels at kellogg.

The bigproblems that business and society face today arefar too complex for any single entity, organizationor discipline to solve alone.Properly led and clearly focused, collaboration is thesurest route to innovation and positive change. This isa concept that we at Kellogg have long understood.It is the model Kellogg pioneered.The kind of collaboration we practice here has littleto do with compromise or simple cooperation. Rather,it’s about groups of people focused on excellence,connected by common purpose, willing to put egosaside and even risk failure to discover a new andbetter path. It demands dedication, intensity andkeen social insight.Collaboration at Kellogg calls for humility — to admitthere may be others who can do something better “My classmates come from 23 countries andthan you — and the accompanying wisdom to let them. countless industries.
