Former Chairman and CEO of Onyx Pharmaceuticals Dr. Tony Coles shared his business philosophy and thoughts on leadership with New York AOLers this week during the second event in the BUILD Speaker Series. Tim Armstrong kicked off the conversation with this accomplished leader, discussing how to be a leader on an individual as well as the corporate level, and what it means to find passion. Some ideas to BUILD on from Dr. Coles:

  • "Leadership matters, vision matters, words matter."
  • "When you want to move the world, you actually can."
  • "Everyone has the capability to be a leader."
  • "Things don't exist until we speak them into existence."
  • "Follow your true north, follow what's in you."
