Key Quotes:

  • “All I do is look at what happens and find useful ways. I say to myself, every time something happens, I bet, I know how to spin that and help people because others have been through that thing, too.” – Dr. Todd Dewett, PhD
  • “I’d like to try and educate people to number one, stand up, speak up, advocate for good quality change in their life, not just at work, and to have their eyes open when they do so because it is rough waters sometimes, and you got to be ready to navigate them.” – Dr. Todd Dewett, PhD
  • “If you value innovation, you’re going to have to have tough conversations and get past your own perceptual biases, and make it a much, much bigger conversation where others have just as much or more say, than you, that’s just a requirement for real innovation.” – Dr. Todd Dewett, PhD
