Igniting Real Change – The Actions that Matter

Solving difficult problems requires a tremendous ability to simplify and the flexibility to stay current.

Robbie Bach – Former Microsoft President and CEO of Xbox

After spending over 20 years at Microsoft, in key leadership positions, Robbie Bach takes the lessons learned from building successful operations and applying them to the broader civic, and social issues we must deal with to fix our nation, our institutions and ourselves.

It is all too obvious, to Robbie and the rest of us, that our business, government and institutional leaders have lost their moral and ethical obligation.

Government leaders have to focus their priorities on what is right for citizens rather than what is right for their re-election campaigns.

He believes that the strategic framework developed as the CEO of Xbox, and that he writes about in his book Xbox Revisited, provides a pathway to solving these problems.

At the heart of this framework is what Robbie calls the THREE P’s – Purpose – Principles and Priorities.

  • PURPOSE: THE SOUL OF THE MATTER
  • PRINCIPLES: THE BELIEFS THAT MATTER
  • PRIORITIES: THE ACTIONS THAT MATTER

With these guidelines, Robbie believes we will transform ourselves and our communal institutions, by: “Turning failure not just into lessons, but into actual success.”

My detailed conversation with Robbie, about his book Xbox Revisited, and the important issues that face us, airs this week on most of our PBS station.

Enjoy the show and your week,

Barry

  1. Barry, I’m excited to watch this and hopefully glean some informative help with an environmental issue of the greatest urgency. I am becoming more of an activist and joining forces with others aligned with the knowledge that climate engineering is actually harming us and our planet.

    I’m hoping that Robbie Bach and his theories will be helpful in the movement to stop this rarely spoken of, yet globally enacted practice. The movement is gaining in momentum but with a long haul ahead. Looking forward to learning some strategies.

    Thank you, Barry, for playing an important role in enlightening your audience.

    Cory
