Ginni Rometty, the first woman to lead IBM, retired from the company in 2020 after almost 40 years of service. She learned a lot in her long career. With a focus on service and stewardship, Rometty has combined her personal story with leadership advice in Good Power, our latest Instaread.
A big problem is just a system that needs to be transformed. Rometty’s experience has taught her the power of we and the power of me, both of which are needed for positive transformation. Problems with a wide scope require a collective push to get the ball rolling. And people with professional power must be willing to take risks and use influence to keep the momentum going.
