Former Secretary of the Treasury and Chairman of Alcoa, Mr. Paul O’Neill, left a lasting legacy and impression with his matter-of-fact and inclusionary style to continuously challenge his and others’ belief systems. He upheld his values for worker safety and quality patient healthcare without regard for sacrifices like artificial public standing or position. He was so relatable and authentic.

“Leadership is not a position or title; it is action and example.”
