15 Lessons from 15 Years

We are Nextions, a global consulting firm specializing in Leadership and Inclusion, and we celebrated our 15th anniversary in 2014! We have been fortunate to work with some of the best companies, firms and organizations in the world, and this is our ode to them and all (or at least some!) of what they have taught us about the joys of living, working, and learning in today’s crazy world. We selected the top 15 lessons we learned over the last 15 years, and just to be characteristically rebellious, we included 5 additional lessons that didn’t officially make it past the professionalism censors.

We are grateful for the gift that each of our clients and everyone in our learning community gives us every day by including us as partners in their leadership and inclusion journeys. This is our loud, colorful, most serious THANK YOU to these amazing teachers!

Think Smarter. Lead Better.

  • Wide differences of opinion in matters of religious, political, and social belief must exist if conscience and intellect alike are not to be stunted, if there is to be room for healthy growth.

  • Diversity and independence are important because the best collective decisions are the product of disagreement and contest, not consensus or compromise.
