Tom Kinisky shares his thoughts on enterprise innovation in a byline for Chief Executive Magazine.
Purposeful passion, the common link in creating a positive culture and driving growth
After spending much of his first year as CEO visiting Saint-Gobain’s sites across the country, Tom aims to channel the purposeful passion he encountered across the entire business.
Innovation occurs at the intersection of a critical problem, diverse ideas, and people willing to listen to new perspectives. But before we can accomplish anything, we need to invest in people. Seeking out fresh talent, focusing on customer-centric innovation, and ensuring that we have a unified clarity of purpose, these three things amplify one another in a virtuous cycle of success.
