Former IBM CEO Ginni Rometty delivers a powerful combination of personal life stories and experiences, leadership lessons, and big ideas on how we can all drive positive change for ourselves, our organizations, and for a more equitable world.

  • Provides a candid and up-close look at the leadership journey of one of the most respected leaders in the world—revealing the values, beliefs, and experiences that shaped her life and her career.
  • Delivers practical lessons from her forty year career and over eight years as CEO of IBM, of one of the largest companies in the world.
  • Introduces the concept of good power—Rometty's phrase that captures the values and practices that motivated and drove her career—and shows how we all can grow and use our own power to drive positive change in what matters most to each of us.
  • Shows how Rometty learned and exercised good power over the course of her career from an entry-level engineer position with little power to the position of ultimate power as CEO of one of the largest and most iconic companies in the world. She shows how good power is not reserved for people with big titles and it isn't bestowed. It's a choice and it's available to anyone, any time.
  • Shows how Rometty is using her good power today, tackling some of society's toughest problems and offering innovative solutions at scale: preparing people for the jobs of the future; training and hiring for skills not college degrees; achieving diversity in tech jobs and in tech companies; promoting lifelong learning; and building a more equitable economy and society through connecting more people with better jobs.
