Teamwork + Structure = Success

John Werner, Sr. VP & Chief Strategy Officer, Schreiber Foods

“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you in trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” This statement, often attributed to Mark Twain, has been written on the wall in my office for the past four years.

Along with my teammates, I had the opportunity to take on new challenges and learn new skills to deliver growth for our company and impact to our communities. At that point, I felt like I had a lot of things figured out in life.

Our minds were stretched as we learned more about artificial intelligence, bots that can create a speech and so much more, and other futuristic changes that were predicted on the Jetsons cartoon show sixty years ago. Yet, as our team listened, engaged, and grew, the same questions came to each and every one of us: Where is the spiritual in these signals of change? What does the future hold for religion, spirituality, and institutions and communities like ours that promote spiritual growth and development? Click Spirituality Futures Day.
