During my life, I’ve been told I was not a true engineer, I was not a true politician, not a true banker, not a true writer, not a true entrepreneur, not a true academic… But one day a CEO told me: “I want to work with you because you’re not a true consultant” This particular day, I realised that – even if it is sometimes difficult – there is something really good In the fact of “not being a true something” !
This particular day, I realised that I was a true misfit. Luc de Brabandere is a corporate philosopher. He is a BCG Fellow and a member of the faculty of various Universities.
