“Find the disruptors. Disruption always starts out as a joke, until the joke is on us. We should embrace disruption and those with disruptive ideas.”

“Status is an uncomfortable word. It is embedded in everything we do, including our identity. Further, credentialing professionals are in the business of granting status to others.”
“How to start the process of disrupting yourself: 1. Define your identity by why you exist, not what you do/your status; 2. Place yourself in "lower status" situations; 3. Try to get yourself fired”
