This behavior requires a strong sense of self-awareness, and an ability to bring others along to build on your opportunity. My article with Patricia Greene and Myra Hart explains this process. Take the story of Marian Croak, Senior Vice President-Domain 2.0 Architecture and Advanced Services Development at AT&T AT&T . She manages more than 2,000 engineers, developers, designers and other innovation experts, but arguably, she is a true corporate entrepreneur. Marian grew up fascinated by fixing things, but studied a combination of social psychology and quantitative analysis, eventually earning a PhD in these fields. She had a clear commitment to helping the world, desire to solve problems and to listen. When Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005, Marian , who was working on the voting system for American Idol to set up a text message system, believed that a similar system could be used to accept donations by text. She was right and AT&T filed a patent for the technology allowing text donations to be made in disaster situations. In 2010 after the Haiti earthquake, the technology was put into action and more than $30 million was collected in donations by text.
