401. Influencing Billions of People with a Human Centered Approach with Mauro Porcini

May 22, 2023 | 0 comments

In a world that’s constantly evolving at breakneck speed, how can organizations keep up? Today’s guest, Mauro Porcini, argues that the key lies in being human-centric and value-driven.

With a rich background in design and a proven track record as a senior leader in multiple organizations, Mauro brings unique insights into how we can integrate design concepts into innovation, and how we can mold technology to fit the landscape of the future.

But above all, our conversation centered on the importance of people – understanding them, recognizing their needs, and finding ways to add value to their lives. This aligns perfectly with our philosophy at The ONE Thing – that having a clear purpose enables us to prioritize what truly matters, thereby driving productivity towards our set goals.

If you’re keen on integrating the principles of The ONE Thing into your life, don’t miss out on our monthly workshop, The One Thing Foundations. Here, you’ll learn how to apply the concepts we discuss in this podcast and from The ONE Thing book to your everyday life.
