"How can we make an impact today?"
This is the question I blindsided the members of CommVault's global marketing leadership team with as we gathered recently in my hometown of Philadelphia for a few days of strategic planning and creative brainstorming.
The impact I was referring to was not the kind that is directly associated with the growth of CommVault's bottom line, but rather, the impact that can be made when a group of passionate, committed people are given an opportunity to be extraordinary and help those less fortunate than ourselves.
I was inspired by what Seth Godin expresses in his book Linchpin, which is that truly great companies only become so when the people who work there exert emotional labor to accomplish remarkable things. I thought, "How interesting it would be to test this notion by introducing 'CommVault Gives Back' to my team, with one very simple premise: Make a real and immediate impact on as many people as possible within a few hours."
