Discussion Questions Around Expanding the Conversation
with Jaime B. Hansen
This book talks a lot about entrepreneurship and designing your own work day/life/ideas. But is America still a country of entrepreneurs or have we become one more of employees?
Affirmative Action has been a great help in helping people who have ‘started from behind’ to catch up and excel. What are the positives and negatives of leveraging affirmative action policies in the work place?

How can Millennials – who are not (yet) leading companies – make their voices heard in this conversation?
In addition to cultivating an atmosphere of failure and encouraging all employees to try different stretch roles, what else can executives in a company do to expand this conversation and include different perspectives in the bigger decisions?
