Mission Centered Leadership

At our November 2011 Higher Ambition CEO Conference we had the opportunity to speak with Deanna M. Mulligan, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America about the importance of keeping true to one’s mission—and being willing to make tough calls—in building a great company.  During our discussion, Deanna shares how she was recently challenged with a decision that could bring the company short-term profits, but was not in line with the company’s values based mission.  


Being true to the mission–and creating a strategic identity that connects “head, hands and hearts” is one of the five core disciplines of higher-ambition leaders.
