Get to know Todd Henry:

What do you enjoy about the work you do?
I love seeing people unleashed to produce the best work of their lives. That impact is what drives me.

What gets you most fired up in terms of a technology, tool, trend, or advancement?
It’s exciting for me to see creative team leaders being invited to the strategy table. It’s unleashing new forms of possibility thinking and challenging assumptive ruts within many of the organizations I work with.

What is the biggest obstacle you face in your line of work?
The biggest obstacle is in getting down to the governing dynamics. So much of the consulting world is about treating the symptoms rather than the disease. I aspire to get to the root of what’s really driving behavior, choices, and organizational problems.

What would you tell your younger self?
Ninety percent of success in life is putting yourself in a position to succeed, whether or not it happens. Build relationships, show up with your best effort every single day even when you don’t feel like it, and add value wherever possible. Over time, this pays tremendous dividends. Most people don’t stick with it long enough to see those dividends, so you want to be the one who’s still there when everyone else gives up.
