I sit here on the eve of my thirty *cough* *unintelligible* birthday ready to officially launch The Burnett Group’s website flooded with reminders of our unique genius. In complete transparency, I uttered those very words at least 5 times today during an inspiring and motivational leadership program orientation. Unfortunately for many of us, this sort of affirming mantra rarely sticks beyond the moment of communal synergy and facilitated encouragement. Yet, whether we choose to own our greatness or leave it on the shelf to collect dust, it is there. Independent of scholarly achievement, public acknowledgement, socioeconomic class, position, title or status, my greatness, your greatness, OUR greatness exists and its unique DNA contributes to the massive gene pool of genius all around us.
As noted throughout the site, the mission of TBG is to inspire professionals, deepen impact, and challenge the status quo of service delivery. At its core, these well crafted words attempt to answer one question: How do we become the next best version of ourselves? This question sits as the cornerstone for the work of The Burnett Group. There’s no 10 step process, no magic formula, nor perfect positioning. There is only The Journey. From micro to macro, personal to communal, individual to collective, in order for us to deepen our impact in communities, forge healthier relationships with our coworkers, produce model results and position ourselves as industry leaders we must first align with our unique genius. We look forward to joining you on this journey of becoming!
