Whom Do You Admire? Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 293

Photo by: Chad Barr

I admire the courage of Golda Meir and Nelson Mandela, the brilliant mind of Peter Drucker, the design innovation and foresight of Gaudi, the creation of the new frontier and landscape by Steve Jobs, the painting of Van Gogh, the images captured by Ansel Adams, the financial success of Warren Buffett, the remarkable innovations of Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk, the sound, composition and music of Mozart and Pat Metheny, and the empire created by Oprah. I of course could go on and on with my admiration of many others.

This last weekend I decided to visit, again, the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University and was enamored by the beautiful design work of Frank Ghery, Canadian born American architect whose architectural work is world-renowned. As I was reviewing the images captured by my camera and many others that are available on the web that feature his design, I quickly realized how much I admire his work.

What is it then that make me admire these individuals?

It is the:

  • Value they stand for and their leadership
  • Unique work
  • Innovation and creativity
  • Often recognized work and strong brand
  • Ability to stimulate the mind, sight, sound and emotions
  • Creation of a WOW reaction in other words “I wish I did that!”

I’ve been fortunate to have many of our clients admire our work, creations and results.
