  2. You completed dozens of interviews with corporate, startup, and military leaders over five years and brought those insights to life through stories and examples in Organizational Velocity. Can you talk about one or two of your favorite insights? 
  3. A lot of companies big and small are affected by supply chain issues right now. Can provide insight into how they can overcome some of these problems?
  4. You explain in Organizational Velocity that you’ve seen a lot of startups heat up or flame out. Can you explain a few reasons why both happen?
  5. What must companies do going forward as we continue to navigate the pandemic? How can they thrive?
