Question: Who are you?
Bill George: My name is Bill George. Currently I'm Professor of Management Practice at Harvard University Business School.I was born in Muskegon, Michigan.
Question: Where are you from and how has that shaped you?
Bill George: Well being born in the Midwest, I think I adopted some of the Midwestern values that tended to come with the area where I was growing . . . My mother came from a Dutch family--a Dutch immigrant family--and we were very much a part of her family growing up. And I think that became very much a part of me--the values like frugality and integrity, modesty, things like that.
