"“If you take somebody who has high cognitive ability, is innately curious, willing to learn and has emergent leadership skills, and you hire them as an H.R. person or finance person, and they have no content knowledge, and you compare them with someone who’s been doing just one thing and is a world expert, the expert will go: ‘I’ve seen this 100 times before; here’s what you do.’ ” Most of the time the nonexpert will come up with the same answer, added Bock, “because most of the time it’s not that hard.” Sure, once in a while they will mess it up, he said, but once in a while they’ll also come up with an answer that is totally new. And there is huge value in that."

A week ago, I had the good fortune of visiting Fogo Island. It’s a small island on the northern edge of Newfoundland and Labrador. According to the Flat Earth Society (really!), it’s one of the four corners of the earth. Its population sits at approximately 3,000. Once the heart of a booming cod fishing industry, the island has been on a decline since the 90s as a result of overfishing. However, largely in part due to a woman by the name of Zita Cobb, things are changing. Her story is well told by the NY Times and Fast Company.
My visit to Fogo Island was brief and it’s been a week since I was there, but I find my thoughts going back to the island, the people and their community. I admire the risks its people are taking inviting people in to their pristine, sparsely populated island. I love the bold mission they are on to revitalize their communities.
A mark of an average trip is one where you return more tired than rested, dreading a return to the daily routine. A mark of a truly great trip is one where you return re-energized to create, to bring the ideas and experiences you gleaned along the way back into your everyday. Thanks for the inspiration, Fogo Island.
