"...Many people around the world are angry about globalization and companies and governments are both to blame for it. But now is not the time to turn inward as a result... You are entering a volatile global economy, the most uncertain I have ever seen. This is a world that needs better leaders, with new skill sets. The playbook from the past won’t cut it today. My advice for you as you enter this world is to be flexible, be bold, and don’t fear criticism. Today, I want to discuss how these lessons can be used to navigate the seismic transformation underway in globalization" - GE Chairman & CEO Jeffrey R. Immelt commencement address to graduates of NYU’s Stern School of Business on May 20 2016.
